Environment One’s expertise in the detection and measurement of submicron particles has led to the development of a line of critical monitoring instruments for electric utilities. The Generator Condition Monitor was designed to warn of potential failures in electric power generators by detecting the submicron particles emitted in the generator’s cooling gas during early phases of overheating or arcing. 

GENERATOR CONDITION MONITORS

GCM-X

E/One pioneered the development of the Generator Condition Monitor (GCM) and in more than 1,500 applications worldwide, operators have the opportunity of taking corrective action if and when a critical situation occurs. For more information on the GCM-X, click here.

GCM-A 2

Advancements in air-cooled generator designs have resulted in increasingly higher power ratings. The higher power densities place significantly greater stresses on materials and structures, making slight decreases in cooling efficiencies much more critical. For more information on the GCM-A 2, click here.

HYDROGEN PURITY MONITOR

GGA

E/One’s Generator Gas Analyzer (GGA) for hydrogen-cooled generators is a triple-range sensor/analyzer that provides continuous monitoring of gas purity during all phases of generator operation.For more information on the GGA, click here.

GAS DRYER

GGD III

E/One’s Generator Gas Dryer (GGD III) is a dual-chamber system that continuously dries and recirculates generator cooling gas — even when the generator is on turning gear, which is a critical time to maintain low dew point. For more information on the GGD III, click here.

GAS STATION

Gas Station

The E/One Gas Station is a modular approach that combines monitoring and control systems onto a single skid, customized to meet specific power plant requirements and budgets. For more information on the gas station, click here.

PORTABLE GAS ANALYZER

PGA

Environment One’s standard Generator Gas Analyzer (GGA) can also be supplied in a portable configuration. The PGA incorporates the same hydrogen gas sensor/analyzer and system electronics found in our other hydrogen gas purity systems. The PGA is specifically intended for use in non-hazardous environments and/or as an emergency back-up in the event a power plant’s primary purity monitoring system is compromised. For more information on the PGA, click here.
