Highly superheated steam is often produced to do mechanical work such as drive turbines.
Saturated steam is much more effective for heat transfer and is often conditioned in main process lines to be slightly superheated. The amount of energy available for release during the phase change from vapour to liquid is tied to the specific pressure and temperature of the process.
Spartan Controls’ desuperheating solutions provide many means of controlling to a temperature set point with variable loads such as separate or combined pressure and temperature control. By conditioning the steam the efficiency of thermal transfer to heat exchangers is improved.
