Back-pressure turbine

Precise regulation of the process steam

Back-pressure turbines are being increasingly deployed by companies to provide processing steam. Besides the process steam, the additional electrical power of the turbine can likewise be utilised effectively. Characteristic of this type of turbine is the thermally controlled mode of operation in which the turbines are operated in the connected process depending on the steam demand.
