Steam Pressure Reducing Stations
|Operating Pressure||7 or 10 bar|
are usually designed and operated at 7 or 10 bar steam pressure, whereas process heating by and large requires low steam pressure of 1 to 3 bar. Economic & technical considerations necessitate operation of steam boilers at high pressure.
Low steam pressure for utility is therefore obtained through pressure reducing stations, consisting of pressure reducing valve, isolation and bypass valves, filters and steam traps. These are available as standard boiler accessories in various sizes and both non-IBR and IBR approved versions.
