Approximately two minutes after the initiating event the low steam line pressure actuated the safety injection, which caused the reactor and turbine trip.
Latest hot flue flow design and new reduction steamer entry design ensure the dyeing evenness and low steam consumption.
The comparatively low steam temperature also required a custom-made turbine capable of running optimally at lower pressures, whilst the evident need to conserve water required the construction of a large condenser to cool steam for reuse in the system.
The central Cuban province of Ciego de Avila was the only province unable to self-supply during this harvest, due to low steam boiler pressures in one of its sugar mills.
The plant has been operating below capacity since 2010 because of low steam supply.
It's able to actually increase the pressure of the steam lines when you turn on a steam house; whereas with our older system, you're talking about fifteen to twenty minutes of low steam pressure while the boilers struggled to catch up to demand.
Good availability has been achieved by using low steam temperatures in the convective superheating stages, preventing fouling and corrosion of the convective heat exchangers.
After dealing with a particularly virulent infection, the immune system, unsurprisingly, becomes depleted and runs at low steam. A young, growing person can recover quite quickly, but older people may take longer.
It has also been retrofitted to solve poor control situations, safety valve popping problems, and intermittent low steam main pressure problems.
According to Klaus Wasmuht, manager of Steinecker's technology department, "Wort is transferred across a heated surface in a thin layer resulting in improved heat transfer and effective boiling at low steam temperatures and pressure in less time." Wasmuht report that brewers can see up to 50% reduction in energy consumption and wort evaporation, as well as a decrease in [CO.sub.2] emissions.
It is also very effective in preventing Fischer-Tropsch byproduct formation when operating at low steam to gas conditions, the release adds.The key difference between the two catalysts is that the new production process reduces the content of hexavalent chromium to non-detectable levels (
Thanks to low steam consumption and a high-efficiency scrubbing system, SoftColumn[TM] prevents 99.5% of odours from being released into the atmosphere.
