Water metering without the risk of leakages and pressure drop.
Adept helps a leading thermal power plant to achieve it successfully.
Fixed type Ultrasonic & Electromagnetic Flowmeters from Adept help in precise flow measurement for critical processes.
Rajasthan is India's largest state by area and is well-known for its forts, havelis, Thar desert and it is also home to three national tiger reserves. The state has acquired significance because of growing tourism and rapid industrialisation, and is experiencing a surge in demand for electricity. To cope up with this demand, Rajasthan Rajya Vidyut Utpadan Nigam Limited (RVUN) is rapidly increasing the number of power projects in the state and Chhabra Thermal Power Plant (CTPP) of 2320 MW capacity is one of its flagship projects.
In a thermal power station, several water flow circuits are involved which require permanent metering as well as temporary spot measurements. At Chhabra Power Plant, RVUN was looking for a solution for such flow metering requirements. They also required Flowmeters for the ETP.
Ability to handle the project on a turnkey basis and proven experience were the main criteria for the selection of the instrumentation partner. Based on these expectations, Adept was their obvious choice, considering our ability to provide not only the Flowmeters, but also Automation, RPCB & CPCB con n e c ti v it y s upport a nd SCADA connectivity support.

Solutions from Adept
Benefits to Chhabra Thermal Power Plant, Rajasthan
With the help of most relevant solutions from Adept, CTPP could fulfil their expectations while achieving several objectives.
No pressure drops and no risk of leakages
Installing inline Flowmeter necessitates boring of pipe. This increases the possible risk of leakage of pipes due to high pressure in feed water pipes. Moreover, any inline device causes pressure drops and affects the flow of the medium. To avert these risks, Adept recommended Ultrasonic Flowmeters UFM 6710. The sensors of the UFM 6710 are clamped onto the outside of pipes and hence, there is no pressure drop and no risk of leakage at any time.
No electric conductivity required
In order to avoid corrosion, feed water used in steam boilers of thermal power stations is highly purified. Due to its high purification level, it becomes an electrical insulator eliminating the possibility of measuring flow with electromagnetic meters. By employing ultrasonic technology to determine flow rates, the UFM 6710 clamp-on meters can measure the flow of liquids regardless of their electric conductivity.
No plant shutdown required
The installation of inline Flowmeters requires pipes to be cut, which in turn, requires shutdown of single systems or sometimes the entire plant. As the sensors of the UFM 6710 Ultrasonic Flowmeters are clamped onto the outside of pipes, there is no need to cut them and therefore, no interruption of the flow.
The flexibility offered by our portable and fixed installation Flowmeters enables them to be used at different areas of a power station, for different liquids and on pipes of almost every common material and diameters from 10 mm to 4570 mm. Due to the high temperature resistance of our clamp-on sensors, Adept Flowmeters can also be used on pipes with temperatures of up to 2500C, which makes them suitable for use on hot water and condensate pipelines.
Ability to integrate with centralised control & monitoring system
Due to the GSM connectivity and SCADA support, Adept Flowmeters can be easily integrated with the centralised system.
