The CSP plant also uses a dry cooling system to condense the exhaust steam flow, significantly decreasing the amount of water the plant uses compared to a similar facility.
A third option is to use dry cooling systems instead of wet recirculation, where the exhaust steam is cooled by air rather than water, but such systems are three times more costly.
This device comprised many air-cooled copper tubes whose purpose was to condense the exhaust steam into water and thence back into the boiler, where it was re-used, rather than exhausting clouds of steam into the atmosphere.
The blast pipe takes exhaust steam from the cylinders and makes it travel faster.
For example, the intermediate-pressure turbine exhaust flow diffuser has been changed to improve flow guidance and to reduce vortex formation in the exhaust steam section.
The exhaust steam also passes out at these same ports.
