With LNG or liquefied natural gas being accepted and acknowledged as the principal source of energy in future because of its cleanliness and efficiency as an energy source, the role of a LNG Desuperheater cannot be overemphasized.
As LNG is officially being accepted as an appropriate substitute for oil because of its ability to cut green house gases, LNG plants keep springing up worldwide. And it’s because of this that the demand for the LNG Superheater too, keeps growing. So much so that no LNG plant can now do without a gas or steam desuperheater.
It goes without saying that superheat and steam generation are inextricable. Otherwise the steam that is required to move from the boiler to the point would cool down and condense. Superheating prevents this but also requires a minimal increase in energy levels.
Therefore, it must be removed or desuperheated at the point of utilization, to get a predictable condensation as the steam starts cooling.
In other words, the desuperheater increases efficiency, controls temperature very accurately, eliminates fatigue caused by thermal cycling, requires low maintenance, improves safety and also cuts costs.
The advanced LNG Desuperheater comes integrated with an Equalizer mixing module. The latter features a low-pressure nozzle for injection spray to inject water into a gas stream that’s superheated.
This reduces the temperature of the superheated steam to the required temperature almost instantly. This again instantly reduces the superheated steam to the appropriate level with the cooling happening almost immediately.
The advanced LNG Desuperheaters require a much shorter straight layout as compared to the conventional ones. This comes as an additional advantage to those LNG plants with space constraints.
Moreover, the LNG Desuperheater has no mobile parts, thus eliminating the need for extensive maintenance. It also guarantees much less noise as also low vibration.
The introduction of the equalizer mixing module in an LNG Desuperheater has revolutionized the concept. The low-pressure spray nozzle for water injection that’s directed upstream connects the water and steam intimately. This in turn, reduces the temperature of the superheated steam to its right value almost immediately.
The advanced LNG Desuperheater has entered the market where solutions to the global energy sector are wanted yesterday. That’s why these are selling like never before because they come with unique features like no mobile parts, required the lowest vibration levels while also requiring minimum maintenance.
