Water/ steam circuit: vacuum and density issues
Takes little steam to carry a large amount of energy; takes little water to damage the turbine
Major benefits of using steam as a heat transfer medium are that it is nontoxic, nonflammable, the equipment used for that is inexpensive and requires little maintenance. Nevertheless, you may experience system safety issues, early equipment failures, poor steam system efficiency, frequent boiler shutdowns from low-water level, damaged steam pipes and valves due to water hammer, vibration, corrosion, erosion, reduced capacity of steam heaters, and overloaded steam traps.
Your water/ steam circuit challenges
The many parts of the water/ steam circuit in your power plant can present challenges. First, you need to ensure safe operation of the circuit, monitor levels in vessels, control the flow volumes in water steam lines and measure the over-pressure and temperature in all parts of the plant. Second, you need to do this the easiest way possible.
