measuring error if compensating superheated steam downstream of a pressure reducing valve by temperature only (mistaken as saturated steam)
Steam distribution with minimal energy loss is a key challenge when aiming for efficient utilities plant operations. From the boiler house to the points of end-use, poor lagging, malfunctioning steam traps, and inefficient cooling of superheated steam can diminish energy distribution effectiveness. Water hammer can cause wear to infrastructure. Therefore, dryness fraction must be constantly and accurately monitored for optimal steam quality. Our technologies help to optimize steam distribution.
From reducing the risk of water hammer, to ensuring efficient cooling of superheated steam, to checking that steam dryers and pressure reducing valves are functioning correctly, Endress+Hauser enables you to accurately measure and optimize steam distribution, including custody transfer. Our complete portfolio of 2-wire measurement and monitoring solutions will increase the availability of your steam supply and allow exact mass and energy balance for safe, efficient steam distribution.
