Schroeder Valves, a world leading supplier of pump protection valves, is among the suppliers for the world’s biggest gas-fired combined-cycle power plant complex currently being built in Egypt. The first of a total of 36 Schroeder High Pressure Valves (SHP) have already been delivered. 

The SHP builds on existing Schroeder Valves technology. The company already has decades of operational experience with almost all of the effective principles and assemblies used. As such the SHP can be considered ‘Proven Equipment’. The individual system components have simply been modified and innovatively combined, as such that they enhance the dependable and low-wear area of application of the existing technology to meet the increased requirements. Thus, the new SHP-series automatic recirculation valve enables and promotes the energy-efficient operation of modern power plant facilities.

The Schroeder High Pressure Valve SHP is an automatic recirculation valve which was developed to protect pumps and equipment from damage that can occur due to the flow rate falling below the permissible minimum. Therefore, the SHP is suited primarily for customers in the field of power plant and plant construction and the offshore industry.
