Luvata - keeping the power generation industry cool

The “cleanable coils” on display at PowerGen Europe

(16 March 2012).  Luvata introduces its series of motor/generator coolers for engine and generator water cooling for the power generation industry, including hydro-electric. The motor/generator coolers feature a removable header, making cleaning even easier for the most demanding conditions.

Available in both single tube (QLKE) and double tube (QDKR) versions, the Luvata  motor/generator coolers feature a removable header, to allow easy access to the heat exchanger inner parts and making cleaning of the circuit a breeze (“cleanable coils”). The headers – available in a variety of materials such as stainless steel, galvanized steel, titanium and coated steel – are equipped with drain and venting plugs.

The tube material can also vary depending on the circulating fluid characteristics, generally untreated sea or lake water; the options include copper, copper-nickel, stainless steel and titanium. Thanks to its many years serving the very diverse needs and often corrosive environments of the power generation industry, Luvata is able to support its clients in selecting the configuration and materials that best suit the specific operating conditions.

The double tube version QDKR is specifically designed for marine applications where any possible fluid leakage must be avoided, to satisfy safety concerns or operation continuity needs. The double tube design collects any leaked fluid by means of a secondary inner grooved tube and draining it outside the heat exchanger. As an added option, Luvata also offers a range of fluid detection devices.

To further assist clients in the selection of the ideal motor/generator cooler, Luvata offers its proprietary “COILS” selection software that helps in selecting the most appropriate heat exchanger configuration based on clients’ specific criteria and installation conditions.

Joakim Segerberg, EMEA Sales Director for the industrial products comments: “Our motor/generator coolers combined with our extensive installation experience and sector know-how is one of Luvata’s greatest strengths. This strength has translated into sales of motor/generator coolers in China and North America as well, which only adds to our know-how and the support of our global partners.”

Luvata’s motor/generator cooler will be on display at the PowerGen Europe fair, Hall 6, booth E91.
