Sep 2019 | Press Release - New Desuperheater with Segmented Disc Valve Controls Nozzle by Nozzle
Steam is not only a supplier of energy, but is also an important source of energy for a wide variety of processes for all operators of thermal systems such as producers of sugar or paper. Using desuperheaters, it is easy to control the pressure and temperature of the steam and condition overheated steam for the particular consumer in the process.
Desuperheaters have proven effective for injecting cooling water or condensate into overheated steam. Producing slightly overheated steam that is 3-20 K above the saturated steam temperature to subsequently provide consumers with steam with an optimal heat transfer coefficient is a specialized art. Schubert & Salzer has developed a completely new kind of desuperheater by integrating a segmented disc valve with four injection nozzles on the lance. This enables the outstanding advantages of this valve technology to be used for the finely tuned regulation of steam networks. [...]
