Cogeneration plants generate both electricity and usable heat. This is a more thermally efficient process than generating electricity only. Many of the solutions for other power applications apply equally to cogeneration plants.

Technology used in cogeneration plants is more expensive than other plants. This makes fire prevention at the mill even more of a key issue, as equipment replacement costs will be higher.

AMETEK Land provides accurate, reliable solutions across all stages of power generation, using non-contact technologies which don’t interfere with your processes. Our safety solutions include a dedicated device for coal mills, which significantly reduces the fire risks to your personnel and equipment.
