PRS (Pressure Reducing Station):
Steam Generation: Good steam engineering practice is to generate steam at high / maximum working pressure, distribute at higher pressure and utilize at low pressure with pressure reduction. It is recommended to operate the boilers use to maximum operating /design pressure. This ensures good quality of steam with high dryness fraction. Process equipments are normally designed for much lower pressure of steam.
ü Assured consistent downstream reduced pressure
ü Reduces fuel consumption
ü Give more latent heat, per kg of steam to industrial equipment like heat exchangers, jacket kettles, distillation column re-boilers, etc. Resulting in lower fuel consumption.
