Steam accumulator module SAM
The module is used for storing a defined energy content that is available as expansion steam during pressure reduction. The application area is the covering of peak loads e.g. if the capacity of a steam generator is exceeded briefly. The greater the water content of the accumulator, the greater the re-evaporation heat is.
The steam accumulator is filled 50 % with water and is heated up with steam to the boost pressure. The accumulator is discharged by opening the shut-off devices on the consumer side. Always the exact same steam quantity that was removed previously is fed into the accumulator. As a result, it is generally not necessary to feed additional feed water into the steam accumulator during operation. A float condensate trap is provided to prevent an increasing water level.
