Hydro Powered Power Generation

How can Todd Technologies Inc (TTI) help the hydro powered power generation industry? Our desiccant breather and hydraulic and lubrication filtration technologies can help give your equipment a much longer life. Learn more below!

How the Hydro Power Industry Works

The equipment and machinery involved in hydro powered power generation plants relies on the ability to harness the natural force of water and convert it into electricity by driving that water into a turbine wheel at a lower level, which is connected to a generator. This generator has a rotor; when the turbine turns this rotor, electricity is produced. If any of this process is disrupted, electricity is not produced. Contaminants such as dirt or debris can work their way into equipment and systems hydraulic and lubrication fluids, causing damage and unexpected downtime.

How TTI Filtration Technologies Aids This Industry

Our hydraulic and lubrication filters, as well as desiccant breathers enable hydro powered plants to produce electricity and run reliably without the worry of unexpected downtime and costly repairs.

TTI’s PowerBreather™ desiccant breathers are multi-tiered devices that are installed on systems and equipment so that it can “breathe”; and are used to prevent external contaminants such as moisture, dirt, and airborne debris from entering reservoirs, gearboxes, totes, and drums around the plant. They play a crucial role in maintaining the performance of hydro powered plant’s machinery by keeping the interior of the equipment and systems clean down to 1-micron absolute with the use of our proprietary, German manufactured, Dual Phase Microglass Media; and dry with the use of our best-in-class silica gel.

Our PowerGuard™ hydraulic and lubrication filters, remove the contaminants from within hydro powered plant’s systems and equipment with Beta 1000 efficiency, and include media add-on offerings such as water absorptive media, static dissipative media, as well as TTI’s patented SmartFlow™ media technology.

TTI’s product offering is manufactured in our Northglenn, Colorado location, we ship most products in a matter of days and our quality and performance is top-tier.
