HYDROELECTRIC Plant CLEANING

Many hydro companies hire local painting companies to blast and paint their generators because they aren’t aware that there is a company in the industry that specializes in this service. They are left with subpar work including overspray, lack of quality cleaning, possible damage to windings, and poor coverage of the coating leading to hotspots on the rotor and stator. These hotspots lead to damaged coils and plates which reduce
the cooling ability which in turn increases the temperature. This reduces the lifespan of the unit, possible loss of MW or even costly outage time and money. If the vent ports are not properly cleaned, they can become clogged and result in a possible fire inside the unit. The heat can also lead to damage of the conductor insulation.

Use and knowledge of the proper coating and its application are very crucial to the unit. The proper coating and application helps to electrically insulate and protect the windings from the micro creeping of contaminants between the plates and also helps to mechanically secure the coils from movement. Properly coated stator and rotor helps to dissipate the heat accordingly and prolongs the life of the unit.
