Stationary Heat Exchangers

Turbine Condensers
The performance of a turbine condenser is a significant factor in the overall operational efficiency of a power plant. Improper and outdated tube bundle layouts limit condenser and turbine back pressure and thus the electrical output of the plant.

Feedwater Heaters
A feedwater heater is a shell-and-tube heat exchanger that warms up feedwater or condensate by means of steam or condensate. It is used in almost all power plants with steam turbines.

In any steam power plant, boiler tube corrosion problems can occur if the feedwater exceeds a certain level of dissolved gases. It is therefore essential to remove these gases from the feedwater heating circuit. For this purpose deaerators are used.

Moisture Separator Reheaters
In nuclear power plants, moisture separator reheaters (MSR) are key components in the steam cycle of pressurized and boiling water reactors. MSR increase the overall efficiency and protect LP turbines from damage.

POWERSEP® Pre-separators
In new or existing nuclear power plants, the POWERSEP can be utilized to extend component service life and increase the electrical output. It is located in the cross-under piping (cold reheat line) in front of the MSR and serves as additional pre-separator.

Cold-End Systems
Balcke-Dürr and is the only supplier to design and construct both water-cooled surface condensers and cooling towers from one single source. Thus Balcke-Dürr is perfectly prepared to handle the cold end as a complete package.
