Mini Steam Turbine Power Plant BGS 022

Sci-tech Mini Steam Turbine Power Plant Model BSG 022 is designed as a miniature modern day power plant for educational purpose.
A pump supplies water from a feed tank to a small gas fired boiler. The saturated steam can be superheated by an electric super-heater (optional). The steam is throttled to single stage turbine. Exhaust from the turbine is condensed in a water cooled condenser. Condensate is collected in a graduated beaker and returned to feed water tank by a pump. A small DC generator is connected to the turbine by a belt, and electrical load is applied. A mechanical dynamometer is provided for measurement of turbine mechanical output. The unit requires outside water supply.
Instruments are provided for monitoring and controlling of plant operation and performance as well as for safety. The unit is on a steel frame with adjustable footings.
Instruction manual is also included.
