Turbine Bypass System
During startup, shut down and turbine trip, the steam normally passed through the turbine is bypassed by Steam Turbine Valves into the condenser, to a downstream process or to the atmosphere. This allows the power delivery from the turbines to be closed, while still recycling the steam. The turbine bypass system consists of both pressure reduction and steam desuperheating. Valves used in this application must provide low noise, high flow and pressure drop capabilities, while also be suitable for large temperature differences.
