DK-Lok is utilized in hydropower, thermal power, combined cycle generation, gas turbines, and seawater desalination, particularly recognized in the nuclear power generation industry with ASME N, NPT, and NS stamps certificates for outstanding quality.
The power generation industry through EPC (Engineering, Procurement, Construction)coordinates various phases such as design, equipment procurement, construction, and testing to aim for the successful completion of projects. The power generation industry involves constructing and operating power plants using various energy sources to produce electricity. Energy sources include fossil fuels such as coal, natural gas, and petroleum, as well as nuclear power, and renewable energy sources like wind, solar, and hydropower. The power generation industry is a vital element supporting a nation's economy and industries, making stable electricity supply essential.
In particular, in the case of nuclear power generation,(Nuclear Power Plant)which utilizes uranium and nuclear fission to operate turbines, safety standards are much stricter, often requiring various verifications. DekeRock is the first in South Korea to obtain certification as a nuclear power generation cycle material supplier from the American Society of Mechanical Engineers (ASME) with 'N' and 'NPT' certifications. It also holds numerous certifications such as KEPIC, API, and ISO9001, showcasing its high technical expertise and quality.
Valves play a crucial role in controlling or shutting off the flow of fluids. They are used in power plants to regulate the flow of fluids (such as fuel, cooling water, steam, etc.) in various processes. Valves perform various functions including opening, closing, and flow control, ensuring smooth process operations and safe system management. For example, gas and fluid valves that regulate fuel supply during combustion processes and steam valves responsible for controlling steam turbines are employed.
Fittings are components that maintain the smooth flow of fluids and enable connections. They are used at connection points of pipes and tubes within power plants, allowing fluids to flow efficiently. Fittings come in various types and are selected based on the size and type of pipes. Fittings play a role in managing fluid pressure and temperature, as well as maintaining fluid flow.
DK-Lok manufactures components using stainless steel, carbon steel, brass, and special alloys suitable for use in power plants under various conditions. To ensure the highest joint integrity, DekeRock operates the finest design and production teams. Through DekeRock's fitting and valve solutions, installation costs in power facilities can be reduced while ensuring safety and efficiency, as well as minimizing equipment downtime.
Valves and fittings in power plants perform the following important functions.
Valves and fittings are essential components in power plant operations and electricity production, playing an indispensable role in ensuring safe and efficient power plant operation.
