Winters Instruments supplies pressure switches to Chinese power company

August 27, 2008 - Winters Instruments supplied pressure switches to Chongqing Jiulong Electric Power Co., Ltd. The power produced by Chongqing Jiulong will be routed to Nine Dragons Paper (Holdings) Ltd., China’s largest containerboard producer, at its Chongqing base.

Chongqing Jiulong Electric Power will install 8 generators that can each produce 60 kilowatts of electricity to the area. Winters’ pressure switches will be used in critical applications such as burner pressure, condensator vacuum and steam turbine lubricant pressure monitoring. These pressure switches are known for their combination of advanced lever-operated mechanism, frictionless transmission design and high quality in-house springs. Other key features of Winters' pressure switches include 0.5% accuracy, high repeatability and low deadband.

Nine Dragons’ Chongqing base stretches 2.4 sq. kilometers (about 1 sq. mile) and will encompass a privately-owned pier and direct railway access. The cost of construction is projected at approximately 15 billion RMB (about USD2.15 billion), with the first two production lines capable of producing 0.8 million tons of paper. The completion of all construction phases is expected to be carried out over the next 5 years.

Winters Instruments is a global manufacturer of pressure and temperature instrumentation, with distribution in over 80 countries. Winters offers exceptional customer service and superior products that are backed by the best warranty in the business.
