Desuperheater that combines proven technologies for better operational economy
z z z
High efficiency by providing optimum spray pattern at varying loads. Multi-nozzle to provide excellent geometrical coverage within the pipe. Tight shut-off – single-seated design. Separate stop valve not necessary to prevent and dripping that causes erosion/thermal fatigue to the steam pipe. Control and shut-off components operate outside the hot steam flow and thereby protected from thermal shock and resulting damage.

Variable area nozzle protects water control element against cavitation/erosion. High reliability – the selection of seat material and a hard nitrided control plug guarantees high operational reliability, a long operational life span and low operational and maintenance costs. Compact design and easy installation – perpendicular to the steam pipe through a flange connection up to ANSI 1500 and special seal bonnet above. Turn down maximized with optional sequential opening of nozzles.

NOTE! Although the desuperheater is the most important component for control of final steam temperature any single fault in installation with regard to piping or instruments can jeopardize performance. Complete evaporation of the injected cooling water is required to protect the piping and process equipment downstream of the desuperheater.
