    The size of the header will depend upon the number and size of boilers and the design of the distribution system. In a large plant, the most practical approach is to distribute steam via a high pressure main around the site. High pressure distribution is generally preferred as it reduces pipe sizes relative to capacities and velocities. Our Steam Engine Plants Steam engines work by using the expansion of high-pressure steam to push against moving pistons in the cylinders of reciprocating engines, or against the moving vanes of steam turbines. When the Berkeley and the Medea were built, steam piston engines, after a century of develop-ment, were universal for marine use File Size: 2MB.

      Steam serves as a ubiquitous utility at most plants. It is used to generate mechanical shaft power, raise or maintain the temperature of fluids and materials in vessels and lines, to remove components, and even to create vacuum. The design and operation of steam systems involve specialty hardware and raise unique issues and challenges that are not .   Let’s start with a simple fact: low-pressure steam travels faster than high-pressure steam. Surprised? It’s true. If the load is the same in both cases, the low-pressure steam will move through the pipes much more quickly than the high-pressure steam. The reason is simple: High-pressure steam fits into a smaller space than low-pressure steam.

    AN INTRODUCTION TO HIGH TEMPERATURE WATER HEATING PLANTS 1. GENERAL REQUIREMENTS One of the main advantages of High Temperature Water (HTW) compared to steam systems is the smaller pipe sizes and pumps required due to the greater thermal storage of water. Table 1 shows the influence of temperature differentials on pipe . 50 oF means that an additional amount of heat has been added to the steam so that the final steam temperature is 50 oF greater than the saturation temperature of the steam at the given operating pressure.

Design of high pressure steam and high temperature water plantsAuthor: William L Sculthorpe. Most sites have a pipe network supplying steam at three or more pressure levels for different pro-cess uses.

A typical steam system is illustrated inFigure Boiler feed water at high pressure is preheated and fed to boilers where high pressure steam is raised and superheated above the dew point to allow for heat losses in the Size: 1MB.

A feedwater heater is a heat exchanger designed to preheat boiler feedwater by means of condensing steam bled from a steam turbine. An open feedwater heater is basically a mixing chamber, where the steam extracted or bled from the turbine Author: Suhas D.

Ambulgekar, B. Gawali, N. Sane, Vinaykumar Kabra, Ajit Gavali. Generally °F ( °C) is considered as a maximum design temperature due to high pressures and the relative costs to achieve pressurization.

The system pressure must be at least 25 psi ( kPa) above the saturation pressure of the HTW maximum temperature to prevent pump cavitation and flashing of superheated water to steam. The provisions of this section shall apply to high-pressure steam piping system, which is defined as a system operating at a steam pressure of more than 15 psi ( kPa), and high temperature water intended for operation at pressures in excess of psi ( kPa) and temperatures in excess of °F (°C).

The operating pressure for hot water heating systems usually is 30 psig to psig (hydrostatic). Under these conditions, there is a wide range of hot water boiler products available. If system requirements are for hot water of more than °F, a high-temperature water boiler should be considered.

boiling point to steam at the same temperature is called “latent heat.” The unit of heat in common use is the Btu which is the amount of heat required to raise the temperature of one pound of water 1°F at atmospheric pressure.

If water is heated under pressure, however, the boiling point is higher than °F, so the sensible heat required is Size: KB. Design Pressure.

Design pressure is the pressure used in the design of a vessel component together with the coinciding design temperature (metal temperature) for the purpose of determining the acceptable thickness and inherent details of the component.

This is discussed in more detail in Module and Module Plant downstream of the pressure reducing valve is protected by a safety valve. generate high -pressure/high-temperature superheated steam, making the Rankine cycle efficient. The HRSG forms a major part of the steam system.

In the combined -cycle mode, the efficiency of the combined gas - turbine-plus-HRSG system can reach 55 - 60% (LHV basis) with today's ad vanced machines, while in the cogenera tion.

The pressure and design of a boiler determine the quality of water it requires for steam generation. Municipal or plant water of good quality for domestic use is seldom good enough for boiler feed Size: 1MB.

High-temperature hot-water (HTHW) plants are typically designed to operate at temperatures ranging from °F to °F. The system pressure must be at least 25 psig above the saturation pressure of the high-temperature water’s maximum temperature to prevent pump cavitation and flashing of superheated water to steam.

Superheated steam is often used in steam turbines to prevent damage to equipment caused by the inflow of condensate. In certain types of nuclear power plants, however, the use of high temperature steam must be avoided, as it would cause problems with the material used in the turbine equipment.

Instead, high pressure saturated steam is typically. A. Ohji, M. Haraguchi, in Advances in Steam Turbines for Modern Power Plants, USC pressure thermal power plant. The supercritical pressure thermal power plant (SC) adopts, in general, MPa g inlet steam pressure and /°C inlet steam temperature as a standard steam condition.

• Evaporator: is where phase change occurs from liquid (water) to vapour (steam), essentially at constant pressure and temperature. • Drum: Made from high carbon steel with high tensile strength and its working involves temperatures around ºC and pressures well above psi (MPa).

The separated steam. - this is the highest pressure level that can use softened water (rather than demineralized) in a boiler without causing tube fouling and damage. It is high enough to drive reasonably-sized steam turbines, and provide high-level heat.

(The condensing temperature at that pressure is ~F.). Steam leaves the high pressure turbine at approximately kPa and °C at 10"10 moisture. Itpasses to the moisture separator which removes the moisture in the steam.
