ET 851 Steam Turbine Module Show data sheet (pdf file) Print page
ET 851 - A product from the GUNT 2E range
Technical Description

  The steam turbine together with the steam generator ET 850 forms a steam power plant.

  The turbine is a single-stage impulse turbine. It expands directly into the condenser. The turbine is loaded using an eddy current brake. The turbine is equipped with safety devices including a steam shut-off triggered by overspeed or excess condenser pressure.

  All measured values are displayed on the instruments on the front panel. At the same time, the measured values can also be transmitted directly to a PC via USB. The data acquisition software is included.

Learning Objectives / Experiments
- Specific steam consumption of the turbine
- Turbine power for different pressures of live and
  exhaust steam
- Thermal and overall efficiencies

* Set-up of a complete steam power plant in

  conjunction with the steam generator ET 8501
* Single-stage steam turbine1
* Laboratory scale plant1
* Maximum speed 40000min-1
