Steam conditioning valves simultaneously reduce the temperature and pressure of superheated steam. These control valves inject water into the steam directly downstream of the vena contracta, utilizing the very high velocities created, which ensures that steam and water are mixed optimally. SAMSON offers the Series 280 Valves for steam conditioning applications.
Steam conditioning valves
- Maximize process efficiency by using steam near the saturation temperature
- Minimize the cost of investment as the injected cooling water does not need to be preheated (depending on the process conditions)
- Protect the downstream piping and equipment against excessive pressures and temperatures
