There are applications for steam coolers in very complex situations. One common example is if a cooler is not working continuously and only has to function occasionally. This can occur for example during start up and shut down or in case of an emergency to protect the main steam lines. In this instance the nozzle section will become very hot. The moment the cooler is required to start, thermal shock will occur and the cooler will be permanently damaged. In practice a very limited number of cycles can be expected before the cooler is damaged.
Increasing efficiency in power plant engineering is a hot topic. This technologically challenging endeavor of increasing conventional steam temperatures of 600°C up to 700°C is the requirement and the goal of the project COMTES700. The abbreviation stands for "Component Test Facility for a 700°C Power Plant". It is sponsored by the European Union and involves HORA as one of the technology partners: The power of innovation from Schloß Holte-Stukenbrock.
