4. Quality Steam
If you’re in the market for a new boiler, making sure that you’re getting steam of the highest quality is going to be important to you. The majority of applications call for the driest steam that can possibly be provided, as any excess moisture can not only lower your boiler’s efficiency ratings, but can also wreak havoc within your steam system and your end products.
In order to produce the highest quality steam, the Clayton Steam Separator has been designed to minimize moisture and carry over, while producing a consistent steam quality of 99.5%. The separator utilizes high velocity, mechanical separation to remove moisture, which easily outperforms the natural separation that is common in a traditional boiler. A key feature in this design is the absence of any moving parts, which significantly lowers the chance of any mechanical malfunctions.
As water passes through the coils and is heated, it enters the steam separator as a mixture of hot water and steam, from there moving at an incredibly high velocity through a series of vanes that form a nozzle. As the mixture passes through this nozzle, it also impacts against the walls of the separator. These walls, as well as the top, are lined with a screen that allows steam to pass through as it rises and exits the separator, all while removing any excess moisture. This process produces dry steam of the highest caliber, while separated moisture is collected at the bottom of the device to be reused. Using its patented design, Clayton is capable of yielding the driest saturated steam available in today’s industry.
In addition to the dry quality steam produced by using this method, another effect of Clayton’s Steam Separator is its ability to maintain constant levels of steam pressure and dryness. You won’t find any unpredictable fluctuations with the Clayton design, meaning that your end result will be a constant, reliable level of steam throughout the day, giving you peace of mind and minimizing unnecessary stress on your process equipment.
If you’re looking for a constant supply of high quality steam for your application, the unique design of the Clayton Steam Separator is the ideal method of reliably producing quality dry steam, all while wasting less energy in your plant.
