Serve to control shell-side water flow to
steam condensers #1 and #2, respectively;
maximum normal flow per valve about
- 450 gpm at 70*F; characteristics per valve
to permit handling of up to 30% more and
80% less than normal flow.
- Serve to release steam to atmospheric
exhaust from steam condensers while main-
taining preset saturated back pressures
corresponding to those ranging from 300*F
to 486*F shell-side temperatures; and
discharging up to the steam volume equiva-
lent of 540 gpm at 70*F water per condenser.
SMA-3-60 Sizes shown are applicable to double-
3.89 hp seated, V-ported valves; however, butterfly.
plug, or other throttling-type valves in re-
quired number and sizes may be provided
for each condenser to meet application
SMA-3-80 Serve as pump suction shut-off valves,
5.2 hp maximum flow rate of 9000 gpm each at
6360F, and 2000 psia; maximum pressure
drop about 1 psi.
SMA-3-60 Serve as pump discharge shut-off valves;
3.89 hp maximum flow rate of 9000 gpm each at
636* F and 2125 psia; maximum pressure
drop about 5 psi.
SMA-3-60 Serve as inlet shut-off valves on water
3.89 hp coolers #1, #2, and #3, respectively;
each valve to pass up to 4, 167 gpm at
636*F and 2,125 psia; (12,500 gpm total
flow); maximum pressure drop about
- Serve as water-cooler outlet line control
valves passing water thru the three water
coolers; normal flow per valve as listed
under W3 above; maximum pressure drop
about 32 psi, while passing normal flow of
4,167 gpm at 486*F, with characteristics
per valve to handle 50% of normal flow
SMA-00-72 Serve as by-pass around W4 to provide a
0.5 hp water flow circuit by which heated water
may be circulated to keep coolers at operat-
ing temperatures during standby readiness
