Scanivalve’s robust and high accuracy pressure and temperature scanners are an ideal fit for steam turbine efficiency and performance tests.
With steam turbines being used worldwide for power generation,their efficiency plays a critical role in clean, cost effective power generation. Scanivalve’s comprehensive instrumentation line provides accurate and simple tools to evaluate steam turbine efficiency and performance both during development and in daily operations. Scanivalve pressure instrumentation can be used to determine turbine efficiency, indicate possible compressor blade tip erosion or other performance problems. Scanivalve’s pressure and temperature measurement equipment is designed to endure the harsh environments surrounding steam turbines as well as handle the unique demands of measuring pressures of highly saturated air and steam. The safety purge valves, described in Scanivalve Application Note No. 6 & 7, protect the pressure sensors from the potentially harmful steam pressures seen in steam turbine
efficiency tests. Where many sensors could normally not be used to measure liquid or high temperature steam pressures, this system has a continuous purge feature that isolates the sensors from the harsh media without affecting the accuracy of the data.
