Power & Utilities

Hydratech's fluid management services and their range of heat transfer fluids are widely used in the energy sector throughout the UK – optimising efficient energy transfer and supporting long-term protection of valuable process equipment.

Hydratech have worked with many large-scale energy companies to optimise process performance, often working in partnership to develop custom formulations that overcome specific energy transfer challenges. The technical fluid engineers have provided fluid solutions for; district heating, cryogenic storage, electrical distribution and gas distribution.

Working with industry leaders

A key objective since Hydratech's formation in 1998, has been the establishment of technical partnerships with industry leading power and utility companies.

Working with those responsible for process cooling and heating system design, installation and operation, Hydratech's engineers, chemists and analysts implement a fully integrated approach to fluid selection and management - which in turn, maximises performance, reduces operational costs and delivers significant return on investment.

Hydratech's holistic approach to process cooling and heating optimisation for energy providers encompasses:

Fluid Selection

Process fluid characteristics have a direct and long-lasting impact on system performance, production output, energy consumption and operational lifespan. Fluid thermodynamics, toxicity, corrosion chemistry and aerobic bacteria, are all key considerations when selecting an appropriate formulation, mixing ratio and compatible inhibitor package.

For over 25 years, Hydratech have been assisting the energy industry with fluid selection - utilising over 100 years combined experience in all aspects of cooling and heating applications. Whether your priority is cost, thermal efficiency, environmental impact, toxicity, corrosion resistance or a combination of all these, Hydratech has a fluid to suit. Contact our fluid experts here.

Fluid Monitoring

Based on many years of experience, it is not uncommon for the maintenance of process cooling and heating systems to be overlooked. Under such circumstances various issues can develop, including advanced corrosion, biological fouling and sediment formation. All of which will have a direct and negative impact on heat transfer efficiency, pumping performance and energy consumption.

Hydratech’s in-house laboratory carries out analytical fluid testing of working fluids, primarily microbiological and chemistry testing - to identify water contaminates, bacterial presence, water treatment levels or the make-up of elements.More on fluid monitoring here.

Fluid Management

Correct maintenance of process and hydronic systems in the energy sector is of vital importance, if process efficiency is to be optimised and operating costs are minimised. Hydratech Fluid Management Services (FMS) provide specialist engineering and maintenance services to customers installing, commissioning, operating, or optimising large process cooling and heating systems.

By combining expertise in water-treatment chemistry, fluid-thermodynamics and mechanical engineering, Hydratech FMS division provide a comprehensive range of services to maximise thermal efficiency, minimise downtime and reduce risk. More on fluid management here.
