Clayton manufactures a line of Steam Generators to provide superheated steam. These units use the same proven design as the basic Steam Generator that produces saturated steam, but with the addition of an integral steam superheating section to the helical coil. The use of the integral superheating section eliminates the need for a separately fired superheater.
Superheated steam generators can be configured to allow the user the option to provide saturated steam or superheated steam. These units can provide superheated steam at pressures up to 850 psig (57 bar) and at temperatures up to 650°F (343°C).
Clayton’s superheated steam generators provide superheated steam for a variety of industrial applications as auxiliary boilers in power plants and wherever superheated steam is required. The fast startup of these superheated boilers makes them ideal as startup boilers for gland sealing in combined cycle power plants. Since superheated steam generators are essentially the same as saturated steam units with additional heating sections, they provide the same advantages. Some benefits of using them as power plant auxiliary boilers include:
- Rapid start from a cold state to full output in 20 minutes
- Fast response to load swings
- Compact design
- High degree of operator safety, non-explosive design
- Low maintenance due to single burner
