Steam Accumulator Module SAM
Components

Steam Accumulator Module SAM

The module provides additional steam in peak loads.

Benefits
  • Compensates for brief power peaks
  • Reduces water entrainment and counteracts its negative effects
  • Reduces switching frequency of steam generator
  • Reduces energy consumption and wear
Further information

This module is used for storing a defined quantity of energy which becomes available as expansion steam during pressure reduction. It is used for accommodating 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.

The steam accumulator consists of a horizontal cylindrical container with a built-in steam nozzle pipe.

The module is thermally insulated and supplied with equipment pre-fitted, ready for operation. The module is fitted with a venting, drain shut-off, filling shut-off, steam inlet and outlet valve, an overflow and overpressure valve, a direct temperature indicator and a water level display.
