There is water in the steam generator pipeline

Water Handbook - Steam Purity | SUEZ

Steam purity should not be confused with steam quality. Steam quality is a measure of the amount of moisture in the steam. It is expressed as the weight of dry steam in a mixture of steam and water droplets. For example, steam of 99% quality contains 1% liquid water. Carryover is any solid, liquid, or vaporous contaminant that leaves a boiler

Introduction to Steam Distribution | Spirax Sarco

There is now a continuous supply of steam from the boiler to satisfy the connected load and to maintain this supply more steam must be generated. In order to do this, more water (and fuel to heat this water) is supplied to the boiler to make up for that water which has previously been evaporated into steam.

Utility systems - processdesign

2016/2/21 · In the case of steam, waste heat and water treatment losses can be recovered from the utility generation process itself. One of the most common ways to do this is with an economizer. As seen in the schematic below, economizers have heat exchangers fit to the exhaust gas flow in order to transfer waste heat from these gases to the incoming boiler feed water.

To remove these suspended water droplets, separators are installed in steam pipelines. The steam produced in a boiler designed to generate saturated steam is inherently wet. Although the dryness fraction will vary according to the type of boiler, most shell type steam boilers will produce steam with a dryness fraction of between 95 and 98%.
