A moisture separator reheater is designed to improve the quality of steam dispensing from the hydropower turbine before entering the low-pressure steam turbine by removing the moisture and reheating the dried steam. These machines are used in nuclear power plants and perform the key function of removing moisture and heating the steam. This results in minimizing corrosion and droplet erosion in the low-pressure turbine, helping to improve the machine’s efficiency and performance, and extending the service life of the plant. Reheaters are generally installed between high pressure and low pressure turbines in nuclear power plant stations.
The quality of these machines is the major driving factor of the overall moisture separator reheater market. In terms of functionality, the superior quality machines result in higher efficiency in the form of drier steam that minimizes the erosion of low-pressure turbines, thereby maximizing the efficiency of these turbines. These machines are designed in a way that results in their longer life span. Moreover, reheaters have the capability to meet a wide range of size and system designs. Thus, these machines are highly reliable and also have less maintenance cost. This results in maximum availability of moisture separator reheaters for power generation, thereby reducing start-up losses. Moisture separator reheater machines also have retrofit capabilities. All these factors result in increased growth rate of the moisture separator reheater market. However, low quality machines with lesser capabilities result in lower efficiency of these machines. This is a restraining factor for the global moisture separator reheater market.
