The Taganrog Boiler-Making Works “Krasny Kotelshchik”, a member of the company Power Machines, has manufactured and shipped the chamber-type high pressure heater (chamber-type HPH) for the Belarusian NPP under construction.
Large-size equipment weighing 138 tons will be installed on the first power unit of the plant. Seven similar heaters for this NPP are currently under production. Delivery completion is scheduled for March 2017.
Large dimensions and thickness of the structural elements is a distinctive feature of the chamber-type HPH for the Belarusian NPP. Heat-exchange surface is made of corrosion-resistant tubes of small diameter, which will ensure long-term and reliable operation of the tube system without overhaul. The equipment will be installed in the station turbine shop for regenerative heating of feed water with steam, thus increasing the installation efficiency. (Energyland/Business World Magazine)
