8 Globe valve discs and seats are subjected to erosion and seat wear due to their location within the body and flow path Ball valves are position seated and utilize system pressure to seal Ball valves eliminate the need or use of external handle forces (i.e., cheater bar) to apply additional torque to close valve and the potential to deform seating surfaces, which results in seat leakage. Ball valves are fast and easier to manual operate than Globe Valves Ball Valve Globe Valve

21 Manual Valve (normally open) Pneumatic Valve (normally closed)

22 Description and Application: The Superheater Startup Vent Valve is open during boiler startup, up to 30% boiler capacity. Valve is used to vent low temperature and pressure saturated steam. During initial operation of a HRSG or Boiler, bypassing main steam around the steam turbine to the atmosphere so the unit does not come up to temperature too quickly.

25 ERV / PORV Ball Valve (supplied by others) Main Steam Line Main Steam Relief Valve Model SSI Isolation Valve

26 Description and Application: Model SSI is the Isolation Valve installed under the ERV or PORV. The SSI is normally open and is used when maintenance is required on the ERV or PORV. ERV or PORV (supplied by others) is a pneumatic actuated pressure relieving valve. Their purpose is to prevent or reduce the number of lifts of the Main Steam Safety Valve, thus extending their life. Installed in conjunction with automated or electronic controls for control of boiler capacity or overprotection of the boiler.
