Recovery unit with a thermal compressor STC series

The low-grade steam recovery unit with a thermal compressor (jet pump) STC series is designed for using a low pressure steam, returning it back to the process with a high pressure steam, thus reducing the consumption of live steam. The unit is usually additionally fitted with a bypass pressure reduction loop, and, in this case, it makes a fully-featured pressure reduction unit, but at the same time the reduction of steam pressure is also accompanied by a low-grade steam inlet.

A flash steam recovery unit consists of the following elements:

  • a jet pump (thermal compressor);
  • control valves with an electric or pneumatic actuator and positioner;
  • pressure gauges;
  • a control panel;
  • stop valves and control instruments.
