Competing in today’s power market requires the agility to throttle back operations during non-peak hours.

Competing in today’s power market requires the agility to throttle back operations during non-peak hours.

Increased cyclical operation, daily start-stop, and faster ramp rates are used to ensure full load operation at daily peak hours to maximize profit and allow for plant availability.

Most steam produced in plants does not meet the required conditions for its various applications. Thus, some degree of steam conditioning is warranted in either control of pressure and/or temperature to protect downstream equipment, or desuperheating to enhance heat transfer.

Sizing, selection, application, and installation of the proper desuperheating or steam conditioning system is critical to achieving optimum plant performance.

Control Associates' control valve engineers have the factory training, expertise and experience to help you properly size and select the optimal Fisher™ desuperheater design for your system.

  • Improves the efficiency of thermal transfer in the heat exchangers
  • Reduces or controls superheated steam temperatures that might otherwise be harmful to equipment, process or product
  • Controls temperature and flow with load variations

Our Fisher TBX steam conditioning valve integrally combines steam and pressure control within a single valve. Its rugged design is capable of handling full mainstream pressure drops, while its flow up configuration in conjunction with Whisper Trim™ technology prevents the generation of excessive noise and vibration.

  • Addresses the need for better control of steam conditions brought on by increased energy costs and more rigorous plant operations
  • Better temperature control and improved noise abatement, while requiring fewer piping and installation restrictions than the equivalent desuperheater and pressure reducing station
