Is a steam turbine right for you and your plant?

These reliable and low-maintenance drivers might be the solution you need.

By Amin Almasi

Steam turbines extract thermal energy from pressurized steam and deliver mechanical work by rotating output shafts. These turbo-machines often are good choices to drive compressors, pumps, electrical generators and other equipment.

Steam turbines come in a wide array of designs and complexities to match the desired application and performance specifications. For industrial services, units may have a single casing or multiple casings (e.g., three — low, medium and high pressure).
