Top-pressure recovery turbines (TPRT) operating on the blast-furnace top gas are designed to generate electric power at the expense of pressure differential between the gas pressure under the blastfurnace top and pressure in the all-factory top gas reservoir from which gas comes to the consumer.
"REP Holding" produces turbines rated at 12 and 25 MW (TPRT-12,TPRT-25). Based on this design manufactured also can be TPRT rated at 16, 10, 8, 6 MW.
Special features of TPRT produced by "REP Holding":
- speed of 1500 rpm, which provides minimization of possible erosive wear of the blading when operating on dust-laden gas;
- regulation of speed or gas pressure ahead of the turbine by means of the variable nozzles with a hydraulic drive;
- availability of the washing system to wash the flow passage of the turbine, using recirculated water of the blast-furnace shop gas cleaning cycle;
- availability of the condensate removal system to remove condensate from the inlet and outlet branch pipes of the turbine with a float-type hot-well.
