Boiler operation | Automation & Control Engineering Forum

Jun 12 2012 · Traditionally the safety valves downstream of the boiler (or drum) will be set to lift at a lower pressure than those on the boiler/drum. This is to allow continued steam flow through the superheater and other piping for cooling.

Boiler Pressure Drop | Automation & Control Engineering Forum

Feb 12 2017 · During our operation we experienced a huge drop of pressure from its drum to superheater for about 70-80psig. May I ask if what is the probable cause of this? Safety valves on drum is set higher than superheater safety valve and no leaks on the system. Boiler specs: type: water tube capacity: 300kpph pressure: 300psig usage: power for steam ...

Superheated Steam - an overview | ScienceDirect Topics

Aug 02 1970 · Superheated steam is steam heated to a temperature higher than its boiling point corresponding to the operating pressure. Figure 3 shows the schematic diagram of basic principle of a closed system superheated drying system. Saturated steam (100 °C 1 bar) after heated to a superheated state at 110 °C gaining 30 kJ kg 1 of energy if it is used as a drying medium absorbs moisture from ...

Superheaters - an overview | ScienceDirect Topics

In a typical drum boiler the superheater outlet pressure might be 2700 psig while the reheater outlet pressure might only be 580 psig (Kitto and Stultz 2005). They are used to help control steam temperatures control steam flow pressure loss and optimize heat recovery.
