Condensate Pump Recirculation Valve Selection
Power plant
condenser receives exhaust steam from the low pressure turbine and condenses it to liquid for reuse. Condenser back pressure range from 1.0 to 4.5 Hg absolute (3.4 to 15.2 kPa) with higher pressures possible when the cooling water temperature is elevated by using an air-cooled steam condenser. Condensate is collected in the bottom of the condenser in the hot well. The condensate feed pump supplies the subcooled water to the feedwater heaters.

As with most centrifugal pumps, the condensate pump is subject to overheating and cavitation if used at a flow under a minimum value recommendation by the pump manufacturer. When the flow required by the deaerator level control loop falls below this minimum recommended value, additional flow is recirculated back to the condenser by opening a valve installed in a bypass line thus maintaining the minimum flow through the pump at all time. There are problems associate with this valve and its selection. Read more...
