Steam Transfer Stations

A steam transfer station with condensate backup control forms the basis of the system.

There are two types of operation:

In heating mode, 
the diverting valves are used in their angle ways, the circulation pump is running. The heat exchanger is flowed on the secondary side. The steam valve is open, and the supply temperature is controlled by the condensate valve, depending on the load behaviour.

In cooling mode, 
the diverting valves are used in their straight ways, the circulation pump is off. The steam valve stays open, the station is self-controlled. The cooling water now flows through the reactor coils.

Energy saving up to 30%

The ''used'' steam is sucked as condensate by the steam ejector and is returned via the heat exchanger. The result is a very economic recirculation. The steam ejector achieves considerably higher mass flows through the tubes, thus leading to a significantly more uniform temperature distribution and a stable heat transfer.

With this technology, the reactor can run at 100% capacity.
