Waste heat recovery system
Valves for “Waste Heat
Recovery Systems” (WHR)
Increasing fuel prices and environmental requirements make it necessary to get as much energy as possible from the fuel. One way is to utilize the energy in the exhaust gasses to produce steam which drives a steam turbine. The power of the steam turbine can then be used to produce electricity or compressed air. An effective WHR system can reduce fuel consumption by almost 10%. SOMAS ball segment and butterfly valves are used for shut down and control of the hot exhaust gas flow and for a variety of applications in the water and steam part of the system.
WHR systems are often installed on large low speed two-stroke engines on big ships.
SOMAS application handbook
SOMAS Application Handbook is an interactive tool where we have collected our many years of experience about valve options, material options as well as other important information about the valves we suggest for specific applications. The Application Handbook which is written in English can be ordered by contacting SOMAS. There is an option to download the book via the login zone. In order to download the Application Handbook, please contact us to receive your sign-in-credentials. Achieving the best possible result when using SOMAS control valves is important because using the right size valve can offer you a great opportunity to save money. The part covering “Engine” gives you information on different applications and what kind of valve SOMAS recommends for each installation. It also covers recommendations on valve type for different medias.
