Bonnet forms Standard For applications where the temperature of the controlled fluid is between -18 C and (O F) and 232 C (450 F). May be used with graphite packing up to 315 C (600 F). Although modern packagings are suitable for much higher temperatures it is recommended that the normalising bonnet be fitted in cases where the temperatures exceed the above values to accommodate lagging of the control valve body. Normalising For protection of the gland packing at temperatures above 232 C (450 F) and below -18 C (O F) down to -100 C (-150 F) The bonnet is designed with fins which dissipate the heat from process fluid and help protect the packings and actuator assembly from high temperatures. In addition the normalising bonnet is longer than the standard plain bonnet so that the valve can easily be lagged without interference with the actuator. Bellows Seal A positive leakproof stem seal for cases where gland leakage cannot be permitted. The standard bellows material is 321 stainless steel, although many other materials are available on request. The design consists of a welded flexible steel bellows which is clamped in an extended bonnet/bonnet hood. This effectively cuts out any possible leakage path around the plug stem and therefore prevents emissions from the valve packings. Packings are fitted in these valves but only act as a backup to the bellows. Cryogenic Used for temperatures below -100 C (-150 F). The bonnet designed with a long necked section which distances the packing away from the process fluid. The necked section is designed with a minimum wall section to minimise heat transfer. Cold box extension/cryogenic bonnets are also available. Packing Packings are selected based on fluid temperature and fluid type. The most common packing system materials are PTFE for low temperature and graphite to high temperature. For hydrocarbons service and where emission levels need to be controlled there are two further types of packings available. These incorporate specially selected materials and live loading to both minimise emissions and extend packing life allowing for cyclic operation. These packings are referred to as LTEP and HTEP. Packings have been tested to prove emission levels of less than 500 parts per million over 50,000 cycles and under thermal cycling conditions.

PTFE Chevron is used for applications where the temperature is between cryogenic to 232C (450F) Grafoil is used on high temperature applications where the temperature exceeds 232C (450F) LTEP low emission packing, temperatures below 260C (500F) HTEP low emission packing, temperatures above 260C (500F) Other packing types can be accommodated as required.

LOW FLOW CAGE TRIM VALVES BV502/3/4/5

Characteristics Linear This characteristic provides a flow rate which is directly proportional to the valve lift. The proportional relationship produces a characteristic with a constant slope, so that with constant pressure drop the valve gain will be the same at all flows. The linear valve plug is commonly specified for liquid level control and for flow control applications requiring constant gain. Equal Percentage Equal increments of valve lift produce equal percentage changes in the fluid flow. The change in flow rate is always proportional to the flow rate just before the change in plug position is made. The equal percentage characteristic is generally used on pressure control applications, and on other applications where a large percentage of pressure drop is normally absorbed by the system itself. Valves with this characteristic should also be considered where highly varying pressure drop conditions occur or high rangeability is required. Quick Opening This provides for maximum change in flow rate at low valve lifts with a fairly linear relationship. Additional increases in valve lift give sharply reduced changes in flow rate, when the valve plug nears the wide open position, the change in flow rate approaches zero. Intermediate Other intermediate or special characteristics are available on request to meet specific control requirements.

PROCESS CONTROL VALVES & DESUPERHEATING EQUIPMENT

Blakeborough

Desuperheating equipment Blakeborough offers an unsurpassed range of desuperheating equipment developed to meet all duties. A complete package is offered including the related control systems required for efficient desuperheating.

Combined Pressure Reducing Desuperheating Units For the safe handling of very high drops and the control of high velocities associated with steam power generation, the combined pressure reducing and desuperheating unit is the ideal solution. A major use is with back-pressure turbines supplying exhaust steam to process. Should the turbine be shut down for any reason the steam rejected is bypassed through the valves, which serve to reduce it to the required process conditions. The unit comprises a valve body with special outlet branch incorporating a spray water injection system for steam cooling and a combined mixer/silencer device. The actuator operated valve is automatically positioned by instrument control according to downstream pressure, while the spray water supply is governed by a separate small bore control valve responding to a downstream temperature controller.

Variable Orifice Desuperheaters The variable orifice desuperheater is designed to inject several finely atomised jets of spraywater into the steam flow. The head of the desuperheater is mounted into the steam pipe, and the unique design of the spray nozzles ensures that water is easily absorbed by the steam. Control of the spraywater is achieved by a conventional actuator mounted on the spraynozzle body.

Cage designs Multi-Flow (MF) - Single stage of pressure drop This form of trim design is fitted as standard and is suitable for most flow control applications (refer to front cover detail). In this design the flow is broken up into multiple jets by a number of radical holes in the cage. The flow is conventionally from outside to inside the trim so that jet impingement/high turbulence levels are controlled within the confines of the valve cage. Impingement of the jets within the valve cage produces a more stable downstream flow, reduces the effect of large scale separation and produces a smaller scale turbulence structure in the valve outlet. This in turn leads to a reduction in acoustic efficiency and changes the power spectrum of the generated noise, both of which contribute to a noise level reduction of between 15 and 20 dBA compared to a contoured or ported trim valve. Further noise reduction in this style of trim can be achieved by reducing the size of the jets in the cage by drilling smaller holes, this design is referred to as the Single Stage Multi-Flow (SS), and can lead to a further 5 dBA reduction in noise level. Cascade (CS) (Refer to front cover for details) The Cascade valve trim is a further advancement over the standard Multi-flow valve cage. It is used in control applications where high noise levels or cavitation would be predicted, with a standard trim design. Noise, flow erosion and/or vibration can result in a high pressure drop/ratio application if attention to controlling the pressure drop is not considered. The cascade trim has been specifically designed to eliminate these problems at source by controlling the pressure drop through a number of discrete stages of let-down. The Cascade cage is manufactured to close tolerances and consists of a series of sleeves. The number of sleeves (stages of let-down) required depends upon the amount of treatment necessary for the particular application. Each successive sleeve, has a number of radial holes, and a carefully calculated increase in flow area to ensure correct apportionment of the pressure drop. Thus, the small radial jets pass through a tortuous flow path resulting in high frictional and impingement losses. At the same time the impingement of the jets onto the outer radially drilled sleeves control the shock wave formation which has a major influence on overall noise reduction in gas/vapour applications.

Variable Stage Cascade (VS) Is available when multiple stages of pressure letdown are required at low valve openings. This design particularly suits applications where there is a high-pressure drop at low flows, and a reduced pressure drop at normal to maximum flow-rates. The design philosophy of the Cascade and MultiFlow Trims designs is combined within this trim.

Variable Stage Cascade

Body Protection Unit This design option is utilised on flashing liquid, multi-phase fluids, and on contaminated gas/vapour flows. The unit is designed to prevent erosive outlet flow, from the valve seat, directly impinging onto the pressure containing body walls. It is manufactured from hardened or hard-faced material to reduce erosion rates. The design breaks the erosive fluid flow into small jets and directs the bulk of the flow towards the valve outlet.

CAGE TRIM VALVES BV500/1 & BV990/2

Plug designs Balanced The balanced plug design is utilised to greatly reduce fluid forces acting on the valve plug allowing economical actuation and stable control. The cylindrical plug head is drilled with balancing ports to admit pressure above the plug head. The annular leakage flow between the valve plug and cage is minimised by a sealing ring retained within a plug groove. The standard sealing rings are carbon graphite which give Class III leakage. Alternatively a U seal can be fitted to give either Class IV or Class V leakage dependent on seating load applied by the actuator. Solid (Unbalanced) The design is used on relatively low-pressure drop and/or on-off applications. It generally requires the use of much larger actuators than would be required on the balanced plug design and in all but small valve sizes is not suited to control applications. Pilot Balanced Trim The pilot balanced plug design incorporates two plugs, the main larger diameter plug used for control and the smaller pilot situated inside the main plug significantly reduces fluid forces acting on the main plug. This design produces a high integrity metal temperature where a resilient seal would be unsuitable. Opening of the valve is by the pilot plug, which lifts from its seat prior to the main plug head. This produces a flow passage to equalise the pressure above and below the valve plug, thereby significantly reducing the fluid forces acting on the valve plug. in the closed position the inlet pressure is admitted above the plug to produce a high downward seat load and the only leakage path is across metal to metal seating. Flash-cone This plug design is specified on applications requiring a very high rangeability. At low openings the conical plug nose fits inside a matching conical seat. The plug nose has a number of circumferantial grooves, which produce a staging of the pressure drop as the flow passes between the small annular passage between the plug and the valve seat. In addition to the increased rangeability this trim also allows the valve to handle higher-pressure drops at low valve openings than can be adequately handled by a standard plug design.

Soft seat Is specified on applications where it is desirable to have a maximum closure on the control valve. The soft seat design consists of a resilient seal ring clamped into the plug by a face ring. When the soft seal contacts the valve seat, a lip on the seat bites into the face of the seal and effectively prevents leakage through the seat. The soft seat design can be specified in both balanced and un-balanced designs.

Seal Rings On balanced design valves the valve plug is designed to incorporate a seal ring which prevents leakage around the periphery of the valve plug. Depending upon the desired leakage and temperature through the valve a variety of seal rings are specified.

X-STREAM CONTROL VALVE TRIM

Blakeborough

A new, technologically advanced valve trim for extreme process conditions

As well as providing complete 3D flow control, the XStream is available in the usual variety of materials and has been designed with long term reliable service and ease of maintenance in mind. The disc stack is designed to be separable, increasing ease of on-site maintenance and keeping spares costs to a minimum. A leak resistant seal is achieved using integral, three-ringed metal seals. However, the trim is also available in a welded version if required. Features 3D flow control leading to reduced noise, cavitation, erosion and vibration problems on severe service/high-pressure applications. Trim design equated to up to 40 stages of pressure letdown, keeping extreme velocities and fluid turbulence to a minimum. Reduced maintenance due to natural self cleaning/anti-clogging capabilities reducing possibility of trim blockage on contaminated services which would result in poor flow control and expensive maintenance costs. Suitable for liquid, steam and gas applications as a solution to potentially excessive noise, cavitation, vibration and erosion problems. Custom designed to meet individual application needs, incorporating linear, equal percentage and custom characterised flow characteristics. On-site maintainable due to single unit, cageguided trim design allowing quick installation and removal. Disc stack is separable for ease of handling. Available for retrofit or as complete control valve package by incorporation into both the BV500 and BV990 range of Blakeborough globe and angle valves. Recommended applications Turbine Bypass Choke Valves Minimum Pump Flow Recirculation Anti Surge Boiler Feedwater Attemperator Spray Valve Overboard Dump

The new Weir Valves & Controls X-Stream trim has been specifically developed to eliminate the problems of erosion, cavitation and noise on both your severe and problematic services. Through its unique flow path design, consisting of a multitude of staggered cylinders, the X-Stream is the first of its kind to provide 3D-flow control which stems from the understanding and control threedimensionality within the fluid flow as it passes through the valve. This is important because it is in these highly three dimensional areas where problems first start to occur. The X-Stream trim itself is the product of an extensive research and development programme which has used a combination of proven computational fluid dynamics (CFD) and actual flow visualisation techniques to evaluate and eliminate problematic areas within the design of the trim. This means that the X-Stream trim is able to ensure superb fluid control and continued reliability through a more accurate and thorough prediction of the fluid flow through the valve.

X-STREAM CONTROL VALVE TRIM

How it works! The X-Steam's unique flow path is a multi-stage design, which has been specifically designed using modern analysis equipment, to safely control stage pressure drops and fluid velocity through the trim. Therefore reducing and eliminating the effects of such problems as noise, cavitation and erosion within the control valve. The strong relationship between pressure drop and fluid velocity means that the less pressure drop taken across the valve trim, the lower the fluid velocities through it. As it is not practical to have several valves in series to achieve large pressure drops, the X-Stream trim works by dividing this pressure drop over several stages of pressure letdown within the trim itself. This allows velocities to be controlled to within desired levels, and problems related to high velocities, such as noise and erosion can be reduced, see Figure 1. This pressure drop / velocity control also means that the X-Stream trim is ideally suited for controlling cavitation which is caused by the static fluid pressure falling below the vapour pressure of the liquid, therefore causing it to vapourise and form tiny bubbles of gas. These bubbles then implode as the static pressure subsequently rises back above the vapour pressure, and it is this implosion which creates most of the damage and noise problems associated with cavitating applications. By using several stages of pressure letdown as with the XStream trim, the minimum static pressure in the

valve can be increased so that it does not fall below the vapour pressure, hence eliminating cavitation, see Figure 2. The X-Stream's flow path design of using several rows of flow obstructions to impede the flow has the effect of controlling the energy dissipation, cause by the drop in pressure, by forcing the fluid to impinge on itself rather than on the inner surfaces of the valve and trim. Trim designs using a torturous path to dissipate energy relay heavily on the impingement of the fluid on the inner surfaces of the trim and may therefore be prone to erosion in these areas on severe applications. The flow path design also provides the X-Stream trim with its unique self-cleaning ability. As part of the customised design process the spacing between flow obstructions will be sized to allow free passage of any expected line debris and once any particles have entered the trim there is nowhere for them to become lodged. However, should and unexpected debris become wedged between the flow obstructions the individual flow paths in the X-Stream trim are designed to offer several alternative routes for the fluid so as to minimise the effect on the valves performance. By working in conjunction with The University of Manchester UK, Hopkinsons has used modern computational fluid analysis in conjunction with traditional design methods to develop the X-Stream control valve trim and to ensure that it can meet the high performance demands of modern day, extreme process applications.

LOW FLOW CAGE TRIM VALVES BV502/3/4/5

Blakeborough

Description This versatile range of globe and angle valves available in sizes 15mm to 25mm (12" to 1") offer a wide variety of trim selections to suit all flow conditions in a nonbalanced construction. The body design can be supplied in cast or forged materials. There is a wide range of standard and high duty trims available that can be fitted within the same valve body. Flow characterisation is determined by the shape of the valve plug, or in the Multi-flow trim, a radial pattern of holes in the cage is arranged to give the required valve characteristic. At the enquiry stage Blakeborough will consider the most suitable combination of valve components for each application. Pressure drop, noise, potential for cavitation are all considered to give the most cost effective solution for the particular application. Parts substitution, internal inspection and maintenance can be performed with minimum trouble, the essential working components being removable while the body remains in the pipe line.

LOW FLOW CAGE TRIM VALVES BV502/3/4/5

Trim design Contour The contour trim is suitable for most flow applications and is provided as standard in most valves. The valve characteristic is determined by the contour of the plug head. The contour trim is available in eight trim sizes with equal percentage, linear or quick opening characteristics. The trim is available as a metal to metal or for tight shut off a soft face design is available. Spline The spline trim is designed specifically for accurate control of very small flows. The design consists of a long parallel nosed plug with a accurately cut V notch cut down the centre. The linear movement of the valve plug exposes a variable amount of the notch to the flow. The plug head shank is usually made from stellite or other hard wearing materials for galling resistance and to prevent erosion of the plug tip. The actual characteristic derived from the V notch is modified equal percentage. The spline trim is available in either metal to metal design or where bubble tight shut off is required a soft face is fitted. Multi-flow (single stage of pressure drop) In this design flow is broken up into multiple jets by a number of radial holes drilled in the cage. The flow is conventionally from outside to inside the cage so that jet impingement/high turbulence levels are controlled within the confines of the valve cage. The flow jets impinge together in the centre of the cage bore producing a more stable downstream flow which in turn reduces the effect of large scale separation thus producing a smaller scale turbulence structure in the valve outlet. This results in a reduction in acoustic efficiency, changes the power spectrum of the generated noise both of which contribute to noise level reduction of between 15 and 20 dBA, compared to a contoured trim valve. Step cone This design is offered where a high degree of pressure breakdown is required on low flows. The plug head is designed with an extended shank having a number of stepped grooves down its length. As the flow medium passes the plug head the pressure drop is broken down in stages across the labyrinth steps of the plug. The plug head shank is usually made from stellite or other such hard wearing materials to prevent erosion of the plug tip.

2 & 3 Stage Pressure Letdown Trim These trim designs are suited to applications where a high degree of pressure letdown is required to eliminate cavitation on low flow applications. The trim is designed so that flow passes through each stage of the trim. The design requires a very tight tolerance between the plug and seat to eliminate anular flow between the plug and seat. Body Protection Unit (Diffuser) Is specified on globe valves where a high pressure across the valve leads to high velocity jet flow from the trim impinging directly onto the valve body wall. The seat diffuser deflects the jet away from the body wall towards the valve outlet. The seat diffuser is constructed of hardened steel which is more resistant to the effects of jet impingement than the valve body wall. This feature is particularly useful on flashing flows where high velocity two phase flows can lead 3-stage trim with diffuser to body erosion.

Valve selection guideline Valve flow co-efficient All valves are sized using the valve flow co-efficient, CV, in accordance with ISA 75.01 as detailed in the Blakeborough sizing and selection manual. Design CV values are given in table 5. Body Selection The valve body size and style is selected on the basis of supporting the selected trim design and design CV. In addition consideration is made of the velocity and the required pressure drop application. Liquid velocities are limited mainly due to erosion

considerations, whereas gas/vapour flow velocities are limited for trim stability noise and vibration considerations. Trim Selection The selection criteria of the valve trim ranges from valve flow co-efficient, rangeability, pressure drop, cavitation, flashing and noise consideration. Blakeborough sizing and selection manual details the various calculation methods and selection limitations for each trim design.

TOP & BOTTOM GUIDED VALVES BV800/1/2/3

Description The Blakeborough range of top and bottom guided valves are suited to a wide range of general process applications, such as water, steam, oil, gases and the majority of chemical services. The basic design incorporates a standard contour or V Port plug form as the control element, however, the valves construction allows more specialised trims to be fitted. The BV800 and BV801 double seated valve offers high capacity on low to medium pressure drop applications. The design is inherently balanced allowing the use of diaphragm actuators for the majority of applications. For higher pressure drop conditions the valve can be supplied with multi-flow sleeves to give low pressure recovery. The design is not suited for tight shut-off applications. The BV 802 and BV 803 series are single seated valves. They offer high rangeability, tight shut-off capability and can also be fitted with anticavitation/low noise trims. Design features
Top and bottom guided valve, double seated type, arranged for pull stem to open. The valve illustrated is shown with linear contoured trim. There is a variety of other trim design options.

Trim options Contour/V Port Several trim options are available as standard in the top and bottom guided series of valves. The contour V port trim presents a smooth profile to the flow leading to relatively high pressure recovery which is ideal for low pressure drop flow control applications. These designs are suitable for the majority of control applications. Characteristics Equal percent Linear Quick open Multi-flow Trim The multi-flow trim is designed for applications where customers require the top and bottom guided style of valve associated with the benefits of the traditional cage guided valve (listed right.) Seat Options Metal to metal Resilient seal Hard faced

Low noise Anti cavitation Low pressure recovery The trim option can also be inverted if it is desired to change the actuator action. BV802/BV803 Valves with soft face trim The soft face trim option is specified on applications where bubble tight closure is required. As such it is only available on the single seated valves where the un-balanced nature of the valve allows a better class of seat closure. The soft seal is fitted into the plug head and retained by a shroud. The seat is designed with a lip so that when the plug head contacts the seat the seat face is deformed to produce a high integrity seal.

Standard contour trims. Plugs can be inverted to change the fail action of the valve.

TOP & BOTTOM GUIDED VALVES BV800/1/2/3

Valve selection guidelines Valve flow co-efficient All valves are sized using the valve flow co-efficient, CV, in accordance with ISA 75.01 as detailed in the Blakeborough sizing and selection manual. Design CV values are given in table 5. Body Selection The valve body size and style is selected on the basis of supporting the selected trim design and CV. In addition consideration is made of the velocity and the

required pressure drop application. Liquid velocities are limited mainly due to erosion considerations, whereas gas/vapour flow velocities are limited for trim stability noise and vibration considerations. Trim Selection The selection criteria of the valve trim ranges from valve flow co-efficient, rangeability, pressure drop, cavitation, flashing and noise consideration. Blakeborough sizing and selection manual details the various calculation methods and selection limitations for each trim design.

THREE WAY VALVES BV830 & BV831

Description The BV830/831 valves are designed for either blending two different flows or for dividing a flow into two proportional amounts. The valves can be used on a wide range of process applications for air, water, steam, oil, gases and chemical services. The BV830 has two inlets and a common outlet branch. It is used for proportional blending of two flows into one stream, on such applications as control of process fluid temperature downstream of heat exchangers, or as mixing valves to control the composition of service media. It can also be used for flow splitting duties. The total capacity is constant irrespective of plug position. The BV831 series valves are used for proportional control on flow splitting applications. This valve has two outlets and a common inlet branch. They are used for proportional flow splitting, diverting a portion of the process medium from one part of a system to another. A typical application is on the upstream side of heat exchangers to control the temperature of the process fluid. Design features Top and skirt guided

Trim options V Port Standard Trim The standard trim design for three way applications is the V port plug. This design provides high flow capacity, high rangeability and good leakage capability (ANSI class IV). Other trim options are available as semi-special in the three way valve. Characteristics Linear Equal percentage (special applications) Linear cascade (multi-stage) Seat Options Metal to metal Soft face Hard faced

BV830/BV831 Valves with soft face trim The soft face trim option is specified on applications where bubble tight closure is required. The soft seal is fitted into the plug head and retained by a shroud. The seat is designed with a lip so that when the plug head contacts the seat high integrity of valve closure is achieved. Severe Service Trim Specialist severe service trims can be accommodated within the BV830 body design. The cascade trim is normally used for applications where the flow requires treatment at source to prevent cavitation and high noise levels on high pressure drop liquid and gas applications. Low noise Anti cavitation Low pressure recovery

Valve selection guidelines Valve flow co-efficient All valves are sized using the valve flow co-efficient, CV, in accordance with ISA 75.01 as detailed in the Blakeborough sizing and selection manual. Design CV values are given in table 4. Body Selection The valve body size and style is selected on the basis of supporting the selected trim design and design CV. In addition consideration is made of the velocity and the required pressure TABLE 1 Standard material combinations

drop application. Liquid velocities are limited mainly due to erosion considerations, whereas gas/vapour flow velocities are limited for trim stability noise and vibration considerations.

Trim Selection The selection criteria of the valve trim ranges from valve flow co-efficient, rangeability, pressure drop, cavitation, flashing and noise consideration. Blakeborough sizing and selection manual details the various calculation methods and selection limitations for each trim design.

BV986 - Fixed area spray ring General This unit offers a relatively simple and inexpensive solution for applications which have low rangeability and stable steam demand. The system consists of a spray ring together with a separate spray water control valve. The spray water control valve regulates the flow into an annular feed within the spray ring body. This annular feed passes water into a number of holes to produce a series of radial jets into the steam flow, which assist in the mixing process. Standard Design Options Body size - 25mm to 200mm (1 to 8) Ratings - ANSI 150 to ANSI 2500 Nozzle size designed for specific application Superior Pressure 1 bar to 50 bar (15psi to 740psi) Rangeability - up to 8:1 on steam flow BV987 - Pipeline desuperheater pipe The BV987 desuperheater pipe offers a convenient method to install either the BV985 or the BV988. It is available in sizes from 150mm to 900mm (6 to 36). An 80mm (3) branch flange is provided for mounting the desuperheater. The desuperheater pipe can be supplied in carbon steel or chrome moly. Desuperheater pipes can be supplied with protective liners when the service conditions indicate the possibility of thermal shock or to increase the steam velocity. BV988 - Fixed area probe General This multi-nozzle desuperheater can be fitted into line sizes >= 6. The nozzle head is the same as used in the BV985 incorporating up to 12 nozzles. The spray water is regulated by a separate spray water control valve. Standard Design Options Refer to BV985 section Rangeability - up to 8:1 on steam flow

Combined steam reducing & desuperheating unit BV994 & BV995 units Application The BV994 and BV995 range of valves have been designed specifically for the control of process steam to meet the various pressures and temperatures required throughout the plant. It can also be specified to work in parallel with a turbine to supplement the supply of steam to process, also on turbine by-pass duties where the valve dumps the flow directly to the condenser or to cold reheat. Design The unit consists of a steam pressure reducing valve, either of angle or globe body configuration, with a specially designed outlet incorporating a spray water injection system and a combined mixer/silencer. Conditions usually associated with this service are high pressure drop in the critical flow regime leading to sonic conditions across standard trim designs. The BV994 and BV995 units can be fitted with either multiflow or cascade trims. These trims are able to handle the severe service conditions of this application without the by products of vibration, erosion and high noise levels. The type of plug generally used in this valve series is a balanced design to reduce the actuator load requirements. This design equalises the pressure above and below the plug in the open position thereby significantly reducing actuator loads. A further advancement on this design is the pilot balanced plug, which enables ANSI Class V shutoff to be achieved without the need of high thrust actuators. This design incorporates two plugs (one within the other), which creates a high integrity sealing system. The spray system consists of either a spray ring and separate spray water control valve, or a probe type variable spray unit, BV985, depending on steam turn down requirements. The spray water is normally injected before a series of baffle plates, which act to improve desuperheating efficiency. The baffle plates are carefully calculated to produce further stages of pressure drop and improved mixing of the steam and spray water. The main steam valve and the spray water valves are commonly fitted with pneumatic diaphragm or piston actuators, fitted with positioners for accurate response.

Initial calculations Calculate the required flow of water WW, kg/hr (lb/hr), needed to control the steam temperature at the outlet, by the heat balance method. WW = WS (h1 - h2) (h2 - hF) where h1 = enthalpy of superheated steam at inlet where h2 = enthalpy of steam mixture at outlet where hF = enthalpy of spraywater at inlet values in kJ/kg (Btu/lb) Total outlet steam flowrate WM = WS + 2W kg/hr (lb/hr) Sizing of low pressure pipeline This is the recommended pipe size for BV985, BV986 and BV988 pipeline types, or the outlet size for the BV995 design for efficient desuperheating. The pipe is sized so that the steam velocity does not exceed 90m/s (300ft/s) or, for BV985, BV986, BV988 types, fall below 4.5m/s (14ft/s). The preferred velocity is 75m/s (250ft/s). The minimum pipe diameter is calculated using the following formulae. D = 18.8 WM x VS Velocity mm or D = 0.225 WM x VS Velocity in.

For BV985, BV986 and BV988 desuperheaters there is a

selection of standard trim sizes available


BV995 units are often associated with outlet silencer

sections depending upon the ratio of inlet and outlet pressures and the maximum permissible sound pressure. For these reasons each unit receives individual considerations based upon customer requirements. Distance to temperature sensing point Depending upon the amount of superheat required in the steam after desuperheating, the minimum recommended distance to the temperature sensing point can be determined from the graphs shown. To ensure complete mixing and absorption of the injected water the recommended distance increases as the steam saturation temperature is approached.

Should the recommended location for the temperature sensing point coincide with a pipe bend, then the sensing point should be moved a further two metres downstream. Examples on use of the above graphs Steam pressure 10 bara. Saturation temperature 180C. Required outlet temperature 200C Steam Inlet enthalpy 3253kJ/kg Enthalpy change Steam Outlet enthalpy 2829kJ/kg 424 kJ/kg Final required degrees of superheat = 200-180 = 20C Draw line from enthalpy change to intercept degrees of superheat line, read off minimum distance = 15.2 metres. Spraywater Temperature Effective desuperheater operation depends upon the correct amount of spraywater introduced into the steam flow. If the steam or water temperature conditions dictate a water addition of greater than 20% of the steam mass flow under normal conditions then a two stage nozzle system may be necessary. To limit the amount of water entering the steam to an acceptable level a maximum water temperature can be calculated using the following formulae. Tmax = (P + 0.5DS - 1.427h + 630) C Metric Tmax = (0.125P + 0.5DS - 6.1h + 1190) F Imperial where P = absolute steam pressure bara (psia) DS = final required degree of superheat C (F) h = enthalpy change from inlet to outlet kJ/kg (Btu/lb) Ideally the water temperature should be within the following range for satisfactory operation:(TSAT - 100) C < TWATER < (TSAT - 5) C Metric (TSAT - 210) F < TWATER < (TSAT - 10) F Imperial also applying the maximum water temperature limitations when applicable (TSAT is the stream saturation temperature).

DESUPERHEATING EQUIPMENT & SYSTEMS

Blakeborough

Design & installation of pipeline desuperheater systems Location in pipework The desuperheater should be installed so that the spray nozzle is located at the steam inlet of the tube (if supplied). A filter should be fitted in the spray water inlet line to prevent ingress of dirt. Pipe Joints Owing to the severe expansion strains which may be imposed on the joints when starting up it is essential that all flange joint bolts are manufactured from high tensile alloy steel irrespective of the steam pressure. These remarks also apply to the water joint flanges which are also subject to sudden temperature changes. Drainage and drainage systems Efficient drainage of the pipework following the desuperheater is essential. To ensure that water cannot accumulate at any point the pipe should be arranged to fall in the direction of flow approximately 20mm per metre (14 per foot) under actual working conditions and be provided with an efficient large capacity trap (10% of maximum flow to facilitate start-up and shut down of plant) at the lowest point. To prevent the trap becoming airbound the drain pipe should have ample capacity to deal with the drainage and be fixed as near to vertical as possible. There must be sufficient space in the drain pipe for water to flow down and air to pass up the pipe. When starting up the plant it is advisable to open the trap by-pass valve to deal with any excess water. If a by-pass valve is not fitted the trap should be inspected to ensure that it is passing water and has not become airbound. When the pipework has warmed through to working temperature and a reasonable amount of steam is flowing the drainage of water should practically cease and the trap by-pass valve can then be closed. Successful operation of a desuperheater depends to a large extent on the injection of water being hot, preferably near to the saturation temperature of the steam to be cooled so that it is mainly the latent heat which is extracted from the steam to evaporate the injected water. This minimises the time of the suspension of the water particles in the steam so that all the water is evaporated and none falls to the inside walls of the pipework. As mentioned below the pipes connecting the water supply to the injection nozzle should be efficiently lagged to minimise the loss of heat. The water pressure and temperature should be no less than the values originally specified at the enquiry/order stage since these figures are used for design purposes in sizing the injection nozzle.

The pipes connecting the water supply to the injection nozzle should be no less in diameter than the water isolating valve flange connections indicate. Condensate supply should be free from debris and effectively filtered to less than 0.25mm. Lagging of pipes The fact that a desuperheater is a device for reducing the steam temperature sometimes leads to the mistaken impression that the lagging of steam and water pipes is not important. Unlike the absorption of heat by the spray water, any loss of heat should be avoided. Unless the pipework can be maintained at the proper temperature successful desuperheating may not be possible and a preliminary trial of a plant before it has been lagged may prove disappointing.

DIAPHRAGM, MANUAL & LEVER ACTUATORS

Blakeborough

Description The Blakeborough range of diaphragm actuators is designed to suit the majority of control applications and offer an economical solution to valve control. The diaphragm actuator is available in two basic forms, the direct acting type (A40 series) and the reverse acting type (A41 series). Both ranges are suitable for modulating applications when used in conjunction with a suitable control device. Alternatively they can be used for On/Off applications. A number of optional features can also be specified such as manual handwheels or travel limit stops. The simplicity of design of the actuator enables routine maintenance in the field without the need for removal of the actuator to the workshop. All actuators in the Blakeborough range are produced in the same range of travels and bonnet mount diameters and are interchangeable size-forsize on any Blakeborough valve body. Design Features Economical design Side and top mounted handwheels Range adjustable limit stops High stability Low hysteresis Pressure/temperature rating Pressures 3.2-5.2 Bar (45-75 PSI) Temp -40C - 80C (-40F - 140F) Sizes 50 in2 (320 cm2) 100 in2 (640 cm2) 200 in2 (1290 cm2) 300 in2 (1935 cm2) Travels 19mm to 178mm

DIAPHRAGM, MANUAL & LEVER ACTUATORS

A40 & A41 series piston actuator - general description The Blakeborough, spring return diaphragm actuators come in two basic forms, the type A40 which is direct acting and the A41 which is reverse acting. Both are designed with a cast iron yoke (carbon steel on request) and a high integrity carbon steel diaphragm case. The A40 actuator is designed with an air tight upper chamber and when air is applied the pressure pushes the actuator stem downwards. When air is released the spring force lifts the actuator stem upwards. The A41 actuator has a pressure tight lower chamber and when air is applied pressure lifts the actuator stem. When air is released the actuator spring pushes the stem downwards. Features Manual Controls Side Mounted Handwheel (geared) Side Mounted Handwheel (clipon)

S Type Side Handwheel

Features and options Side Mounted Handwheel Handwheels are designed to give an override facility to the operator to bypass the control signal that is controlling the valve therefore allowing manual intervention in the control system. This can sometimes be useful in such things as plant start-up to preposition the valve to a given flow. There are two forms of side mounted handwheel unit available in the Blakeborough range. The S type is of bell crank design which may be added to a basic diaphragm actuator without any need for design modifications (although re-positioning of instruments may be required). The S type unit can only be used for valve travels of up to 112" (38mm). For valve travels above 112" (38mm) the B type side mounted unit should be used. As this is a geared unit, it is purpose designed and should be selected at the order stage. The unit is built as an integral part of the actuator yoke on A40B & A41B actuators. Side mounted handwheels can also be used to limit travel in either direction (though not at the same time). The handwheel may be set in the neutral position for automatic operation through the full valve travel. In any other position valve travel is restricted. Top Mounted Handjacks Top mounted handjacks are supplied as an alternative to the side mounted handwheel where for example space may be limited or access is only available from the top. They are designed principally as a travel limit stop, however the top mounted handwheel can be used to give manual control of the valve. The handjack comes in two basic designs, when fitted with a handwheel it can be used for manual intervention. When fitted with a cover it becomes a limit stop which may be set by the valve operator to limit either the opening or closing of the valve.

DIAPHRAGM, MANUAL & LEVER ACTUATORS

Diaphragm, manual The actuator is useful in applications where conditions do not justify instrument operation, but where precise control of the process is required. Valves equipped in this way can be converted at any time to pneumatic operation, since the actuators are interchangeable, size-for-size. The handwheel is keyed to a revolving nut which engages a screwed non-revolving stem connected to the plug by means of a normal split coupling. Anti-friction thrust bearings ensure ease of operation. A locking facility which, can additionally incorporate a lower travel stop, is available. Clockwise rotation of the handwheel moves the stem downwards. For thrusts greater than 200lb F geared units would be specified.

Lever actuators Generally used for operation of the valve by existing hydraulic or pneumatic cylinder. The lever mechanism is carried on a standard cast yoke and operates a sliding stem, riding in permanently lubricated bearings. The unit can be adjustable for travel and is connected to the valve stem by the normal split coupling. The length of the lever and provision for piston rod connection is manufactured to suit customers requirements.

MULTI SPRING ACTUATORS

Blakeborough

Description The Hopkinsons range of multi-spring diaphragm actuators is designed to suit the majority of control applications and offer an economical solution to valve control. The unit features a high integrity steel casing which houses the spring return mechanism. The design height of the actuator is reduced when compared to conventional single spring actuators. The multi-spring diaphragm actuator is available in either reverse acting (A61) or direct acting (A60) type. Both ranges are suitable for modulating applications when used in conjunction with a suitable control device. Alternatively they can be used for On/Off applications. A number of optional features can also be specified such as manual handwheels or travel limit stops. The simplicity of design of the actuator enables routine maintenance in the field without the need for removal of the actuator to the workshop. Design features Economical design Side and top mounted handwheels Compact design with reduced height High strength actuator case with rugged design Low volume between diaphragm and actuator case High stability Low hysteresis Diaphragm - Buna N nitrile rubber (other materials on request) Pressure/temperature rating Pressure 5 Bar (73 PSI) Temperature -40C to 120C (-40F - 248F) Sizes 50 in2 (320 cm2) 85 in2 (550 cm2) 147 in2 (950 cm2) Travels 19mm to 178mm 34" to 7" 225 in2 (1450 cm2) 326 in2 (2100 cm2)

Top mounted Top mounted handwheels are supplied as an alternative to the side mounted handwheel where for example space may be limited or access is only available from the top. They are designed principally as a travel limit stop, however the top mounted handwheel can be used to give manual control of the valve.

A60 & A61 series The Hopkinsons, spring return diaphragm actuators come in two basic forms, the type A60 which is direct acting and the A61 which is reverse acting. Both are designed with a cast iron yoke (carbon steel on request) and a high integrity carbon steel diaphragm case. The A60 actuator is designed with an air tight upper chamber and when air is applied the pressure pushes the actuator stem downwards. When air is released the spring force lifts the actuator stem upwards. The A61 actuator has a pressure tight lower chamber and when air is applied pressure lifts the actuator stem. When air is released the actuator spring pushes the stem downwards. The spring chamber features four diametrically opposed springs which give the actuator its fail action. The compact nature of the spring design means that the actuator height is substantially reduced when compared to conventional single spring actuators. The yoke section of the actuator is designed to NAMUR standards which means that the majority of European designed positioners and instrumentation will mount, and are interchangeable, with the minimum of effort. One of the main benefits of the multi spring actuator is that the design of the air cylinder means that the unit is field reversible without the need to purchase new parts. This enables the engineer to change the fail action of the valve in the field with very little effort. Side mounted Handwheels are designed to give an override facility to the operator to bypass the control signal that is controlling the valve therefore allowing manual intervention in the control system. The side mounted handwheel is modular in construction and is secured as an intermediate section between the yoke and the diaphragm casing. When the handwheel is engaged movement of the valve is achieved by turning the handwheel. To put the valve in automatic operation the handwheel can be disengaged. A finger pointer indicated the position of the handwheel. The handwheel can also be used as a limit stop to limit travel in either direction (though not at the same time)

The range of instrument combinations for spring return actuators is virtually endless, however, the most common combinations are shown. On/Off applications with solenoid and airset (Fig 1) The actuator is fitted with a solenoid and airset as shown. The solenoid is connected to the side of the diaphragm chamber to be pressurised depending on actuator action. The regulated air supply is connected to the solenoid through the airset. The airset pressure setting should be less than the maximum diaphragm pressure. Air can then be either applied or vented from the actuator via the solenoid thereby opening or closing the valve. Normal positioning applications (Fig 2) The actuator is fitted with positioner and airset. The positioner is linked to either the upper or lower actuator chamber depending on actuator action and increases or decreases the air pressure to the actuator thereby positioning the valve. The change in air pressure is controlled by the positioner in response to an instrument signal (normally 3 to 15 PSI or 4 to 20mA) fed to the positioner from the control system. The airset is used to both limit the maximum air pressure in the system to avoid over-pressurising the actuator, and to filter the air to remove foreign particles from the system. Fast action fitted with volume boosters (Fig 3) The principle of operation of a valve fitted with volume boosters is identical to that described above except that the positioner output is piped directly to the signal connection on the booster, instead of into the diaphragm case. The booster, in relation to the control signal from the positioner either opens or closes. This allows a higher volume of air to either energise or vent from the actuator than would pass through a conventional positioner. The maximum pressure of air allowed to pass to the actuator is controlled by the setting of the airset. Air fail valve stays put with the positioner and airset (Fig 4) In normal operation the actuator responds to the valve positioner as described above. To achieve a fail fix condition on air failure the trip valve senses a supply failure in the air pilot line. When this condition occurs the ports of the trip valve connected to the valve positioner are deactivated and air is locked into the actuator chamber. If any air leaks occur in the pipework then the actuator will revert to the inherent fail position of the actuator. Solenoid trip valve opens or closes (Fig 5) In normal operation and fail condition this arrangement operates as described above. To operate from an electrical signal a solenoid valve is connected in the air line between the positioner and diaphragm case. Once the solenoid is tripped this vents air from the diaphragm chamber and the spring return action of the actuator returns the actuator to its relaxed state.
