Reduce the temperature of superheated steam


Desuperheaters cover a wide range of applications:

  • Power plant requirements for desuperheated steam supplying units having limited operating temperatures such as auxiliaries, heating systems, heat exchangers and, more recently, dump stations
  • To improve heat transfer of surface-type heat exchangers
  • Reduction and control of superheated steam, where excess temperatures will harm the product
  • Use on boilers, either between superheater stages or at boiler exit, to control superheat temperatures at partial loads
  • Use as bypass of bleeder or back pressure turbines to maintain balance between process steam and power requirements
  • Miscellaneous applications where balancing or make-up steam is required in reduced pressure systems in refineries and process plants
