Selecting Steam Turbines For Pump Drives
Selecting the right steam turbine for the application can save the purchaser money on initial cost (avoiding oversizing) as well as operating costs (better efficiency). The intent of this paper is to provide steam turbine basics, and to provide the purchaser with information needed to make the right choice. The emphasis is on a discussion of the parameters needed for the selection, and how they affect the turbine offering.
