The Spilling steam compressor: a unique specialist.
Spilling steam compressors are used everywhere where steam with a higher pressure is to be generated from existing steam using low pressure steam, especially when
- excess low pressure steam is recovered and is to be converted into useable high pressure steam
- high pressure steam is to be compressed to a higher pressure level without installing an additional boiler unit
Two different compressor series are available, which differ in stroke and nominal speed. Flow rate is controlled by the variable speed drive to handle a wider range of operations.
The good adaptability of the Spilling steam compressor to the most varied steam specifications and its good controllability make it an interesting alternative for many industrial companies to purchasing an additional steam generator.
The drive concepts for the Spilling steam compressor include
- three-phase asynchronous motors with frequency converter for good control and smooth start-up
- integrated steam engine drive for plants with several steam networks with different pressure stages
