Steam Superheater loaded on river Weser for shipment to India

Saturated steam leaving the Steam Drum may need to be superheated. For this a Superheater is installed e.g. downstream of the Process Gas Cooler. SCHMIDTSCHE SCHACK's Steam Superheater is a vertical heat exchanger with U-tubes and baffle plates.

  • The upper head is designed as combined steam inlet and outlet chamber
  • Gas outlet temperature is controlled by the internal gas bypass valve
  • The complete U-tube bundle together with the upper head can be removed through the top
