A Midwestern power plant had deck plate valves wearing excessively which interfered with the proper seating of the valves in their bottom ash vacuum system. This forced the customer to devise an alternative solution which vacuum trucks were used to manually remove ash from the hoppers. This was labor intensive and expensive.
The customer approached UCC for a solution that would reduce labor and increase system performance. UCC installed (48) TITAN LP Valves as a replacement for the failing deck plate valves.
After one year in operation, the UCC TITAN LP Valves were excellent condition. Due to their superior wear properties, the Customer replaced all 192 (96 pressurizing and 96 equaling) non-UCC deck plate valves with the UCC TITAN LP Valves.
