Common failures and maintenance of energy-saving steam generators


Catalog of CHP Technologies, Section 4. Technology

generation, steam turbine generators normally generate elec tricity as a byproduct of heat (steam) generation. A steam turbine is captive to a separate heat source and does not directly convert fuel to electric energy. The energy is transferred from the boiler to the turbine through high pressure steam that powers the turbine and generator.

Heat Recovery Steam Generator - an overview

Heat recovery steam generator is a high-efficiency steam boiler that uses hot gases from a gas turbine for reciprocating engine to generate steam in a thermodynamic Rankine Cycle. This system is able to generate steam at different pressure levels according to …

Boiler Maintenance and Troubleshooting Best Practices | Fluke

In the event of failure, steam traps will either be closed or open. A closed stream trap will not pass any condensate through, while a steam trap that fails open will blow live steam through the trap, wasting energy and money because of the loss of live steam. The steam …
