Minimizing Leakage in Steam Turbine Condensers
Looking to prevent water induction on boiler startup? The HI-100valve serves as the ultimate turbine drain valve solution.
The HI-100 Advantage for Turbine Drains
On normal startup, turbine drain valves remain open until condensate is removed or until superheat conditions are met. During the startup, the media is highly erosive wet steam and the valve is open for several hours at high-pressure drops.
Severe service automated ball valves may be subjected to thermal stress and can cause coatings (such as Chromium or Tungsten Carbide) to wear off, causing valve failure due to seat erosion
