Making natural power safe to use

Since time immemorial, mankind has harnessed the power of water. Today we have the ability to generate vast amounts of energy with this power. ADAMS SCHWEIZ AG, our waterpower expertise centre, offers a range of check valves and stop valves specially developed for this purpose.

Waterpower has two main advantages: firstly, it is continually available for generating energy and secondly, it can be stored – in reservoirs or artificial lakes, for example. However, the use of this potential is dependenton having a reliable hydroelectric power plant. From the point of view of valve engineering, this not onlyincludes suitable turbine and pipe-rupture protection valves, but also, for example, environmentally orientedoutlet valves, which also enrich the water with oxygen at the same time. Whether new construction or retrofitting: depending on the type of power plant, we develop individually designed complete solutions (e.g. inlet pipe, valve, pipe spool, outlet pipe, bypass) that optimally suit the requirements of our customers.

ADAMS components used in hydroelectric power plants:

• Pipe-rupture safety valves
• Turbine protection valves
• Outlet valves
• Needle valves and plunger valves for bypasses
• Spherical valves
• Hollow-jet valves
• Aerating and venting valves
• Overspeed detectors
