Power Industry Overview
Reliable energy production and distribution has become critical to modern life as power availability and accessibility affects most individuals’ daily lives during almost every minute of every day. As global electronification continues to rise, consistent and dependable power will become increasingly vital.
Boyd Corporation has a long-standing history of designing and manufacturing solutions and complex systems for power generation and energy conversion developed to ensure the overall applications’ reliability, performance, and longevity. From turbines and engines to grid systems and battery storage, Boyd’s thermal, sealing, and protection solutions offer high quality, cost effective ways to keep these applications running and peak efficiency.
In addition to aiding in the production and storage of more efficient energy, Boyd is conscientious of our global footprint and continues to strive to support environmental awareness within our company and encourage cleaner energy sources.
Sealing & Protection Solutions for the Power Industry
Boyd Corporation is experienced in identifying and solving customer challenges though our expansive knowledge of applications and material science. Appropriate seals and protection allow manufacturers to ensure sensitive electronics in power generation and storage systems can withstand harsh environments. With Boyd's material expertise and broad range of sealing products and available certifications, we provide customers with optimal sealing solutions for high performance applications.
Sealing solutions include one of the industry’s widest catalogs of O-Rings, custom gaskets, extruded plastics, and molded rubbers that seal delicate and vital electronics from dust and water ingress and other environmental hazards. These solutions ensure that power generation equipment, which is often in areas where repair and maintenance may be difficult and expensive, stays secure.
Boyd protection solutions include EMI/RFI shielding and absorption, graphic overlays, and NVH protection, all of which protect the equipment and the users from harm with system information labels for proper service instructions, eliminating internal and external electromagnetic interference and cross talk, and acoustic and vibration damping to minimize internal mechanical wear and external environmental noise pollution. Die cast enclosures and other protective materials are often integrated with Boyd sealing and thermal solutions for complete system protection and enhancement to ensure better performance at lower landed costs.
