Combined cycle power plants operate at higher efficiency than conventional power plants by utilizing the waste heat produced from a primary gas turbine power generation system in a heat recovery steam generator unit. The steam produced in the unit passes through a secondary steam turbine to produce additional electricity. Like conventional plant applications combined cycle power plants normally operate at supercritical and sometimes ultra-supercritical temperatures, requiring valves and actuators engineered for severe service along with valves intended for Balance of Plant operations. Bray produces a full line of valves, actuators and accessories that are engineered for reliable service in the harshest conditions.
An operating Pressurized Water Reactor (PWR) or Boiling Water Reactor (BWR) nuclear power plant can have over 10,000 valves per operating unit. Bray manufactures and supports all Non-Safety Related (NSR) balance of plant (BOP) applications in today’s operating nuclear power plants. Choose Bray and our global expertise in flow control solutions for nuclear power generation applications, engineered for the most demanding applications.

Cogeneration or combined heat and power (CHP) is a power plant that generates both electricity and useful heat. Cogeneration is used in chemical plants, oil refineries, pulp & paper mills, sugar, and alcohol (especially sugarcane bagasse) and other industries. Cogeneration plants use a wide variety of fuels. In the case of Sugar production, sugar cane stalks are burned as biofuel in a furnace. Regardless of the fuel source, all Cogeneration plants heat water in a boiler to generate steam to power a turbine and use the heat generated for the manufacturing process. Bray is a trusted source of valves, actuators, and accessories to virtually every industry utilizing cogeneration plants across the globe.
Bray solutions for
Geothermal power, including; Conventional hydrothermal resources, enhanced geothermal systems (EGS), Super-hot-rock geothermal and Advanced geothermal systems (AGS) are a renewable energy source. Geothermal systems operate at extreme temperatures with dry steam, flash steam and binary cycle applications and often in the presence of mineral content. Scaling and corrosion are two of the most common problems in Geothermal power. Bray's valves are engineered for applications involving scaling, corrosion, and high temperature, providing you with reliable service in geothermal power generation applications.
