Temperature and pressure measureing by WIKA

The power generation industry is diverse, covering many types of plants and facilities using both traditional and renewable sources of fuel.

Large-scale (base-load) power plants

  • Fossil fuels: natural gas, petroleum, coal
  • Hydroelectricity
  • Nuclear
  • CHP (combined heat and power)

Peak-load power plants

  • Gas turbine

Renewable systems

  • Geothermal
  • Biomass/biogas
  • Wind
  • Solar thermal

For maximum safety and optimal efficiency, power plants of all types – from remote substations to enormous hydroelectric facilities – require high-quality measuring instruments to monitor their processes.

Our strengths

For more than 70 years, WIKA has actively partnered with power generators and providers across the globe. Our instruments are found in a wide range of power-generation applications: generators, transformers, turbines, compressors, pumps, pollution control systems, flue gas systems, and more.

We offer a comprehensive portfolio of mechanical, mechatronic, and digital solutions for the power industry:

  • Temperature — dial thermometers, digital indicators, thermocouples, resistance thermometers (RTDs), temperature transmitters, temperature switches, thermowells (including those with ScrutonWell® design)
  • Pressure — analog and digital pressure gauges, differential pressure gauges, process transmitters, pressure switches, contact pressure gauges, diaphragm seals
  • Level — level indicators (magnetic, sight glass, etc.), float switches, optoelectric switches, external changers, differential pressure gauges for liquid measurement
  • Force — force transducers
  • Flow primary flow elements (orifice plates, orifice flange unions, meter runs, Venturi tubes and nozzles, flow meters, etc.)
  • Calibration — digital pressure gauges, hand-held calibrators, pressure balances, portable pressure generation, reference thermometers, calibration baths
  • SF6 gas — gas density monitors, gas handling equipment, detection instruments

As a single-source supplier for all your measurement needs, WIKA saves customers time and hassle. Most of our products come with a variety of options – ranges, accuracies, materials, mounting, output signals, etc. – for greater flexibility. If a particular instrument or accessory does not suit your exact application needs, our engineers will work you to customize a solution.

The WIKA difference for the power generation industry

Measuring technologies for power generation is as diverse as the industry itself. That’s why our sales and engineering staff offer individualized service, from expert advisory and consulting to instrument installation, maintenance/repairs, and upgrades. And as a multinational corporation with an international presence, WIKA has the certifications and approvals for the measuring instruments used in your power plant, no matter its location.

Make us your business partner, whether you are designing a new plant or upgrading an existing one, and whether the facility uses a traditional or renewable/experimental fuel source. Click on the Products tab or contact WIKA Canada for more information about reliable, long-lasting instruments for the power generation industry.

WIKA has worked with licensing and EPC companies for more than 30 years on major projects all over the world. We partner with you from the planning stages through to completion, and we provide post-project support. In addition to supplying high-quality process measurement instruments for temperature, pressure, level and flow applications, we can also work with you to develop solutions that meet your exact requirements.

WIKA also offers on-site expertise and technical support services to help ensure the success of your project. For more information, contact us.

The factors of capacity

Our high level of performance is essentially based on three factors: A wide and innovative product range, comprehensive and competent service and a reliable global presence. We are pleased to be committed to your success, too.

Engineering and Technical Services for Temperature, Pressure Measurement

As a true partner, WIKA is committed to helping you run as efficiently, reliably and safely as possible. We offer on-site engineering and technical services for your pressure and temperature measurement solutions to help you meet operational goals.

Whether you need us to troubleshoot an issue, calibrate an instrument, install or repair a multipoint assembly, or help develop a new specification or design, WIKA has experienced teams dedicated to providing the expertise and support you need.

Temperature Measurement Installation, Turnaround, Repair Services

WIKA Instruments Ltd field services  include on-site engineering and supervision, turnaround, and installation and repair for::

  • Tube Skin Thermocouple Assemblies
  • Multipoint Assemblies
  • Radial Temperature Measurement Systems
  • Flexible Multipoint Assemblies
  • Flame Rods, RTDs and Thermowells

Mechanical Pressure, Temperature Product Training, Audit, Turnaround Services

For mechanical pressure and temperature, WIKA developed the FAST program (Full Audit Service Team), which is a dedicated group of engineers who provide expertise to:

  • Streamline your gauge population, and drive cost savings as well as maintenance and purchasing efficiencies
  • Establish specifications for a new project or facility upgrade
  • Troubleshoot recurring gauge failures
  • Train your staff on best practices and establishing a sustainable gauge management process

FAST is a turnkey, value-added program, meaning you get engineering resources, including support with ERP and MOC documentation, for no more than you would spend for gauges.

The FAST services include:

Calibration services
