Thermodyne Engineering Systems provides steam accumulators to meet the demand of fluctuating steam loads in plants. Steam accumulators are an excellent solution to plants where the average loads are low, but intermittent steam demands are high or vice versa. The boilers designed as per the average steam loads are not able to match the peak steam requirements here the Steam accumulators provide the buffer to take care of the process steam requirements very effectively.


The steam accumulator is a pressure vessel or tank that is coated with steel for the purposes of holding steam under high pressure. Purpose of the steam accumulator is to release steam at the time when the demand for the steam is greater than the ability of the boiler to supply the amount required and when the demand is low, it helps to accept the steam back, to meet fluctuating & sudden steam load & To meet peak load demands in specific industries.

How steam accumulator charges the steam: the tank is filled half way with cold water then a steam is blown into the tank from a boiler through perforated pipes that are attached a long the base of the tank. In the event that the steam accumulator has charged to its fullest, some of the heated water will then condense back to the tank and as a result, it raises the levels of water in the tank to almost full and in the process, the pressure and even temperature goes up in the tank.

How steam accumulator discharges the steam: the amount of steam in the tank can be drawn out any time depending on the need for example, it can be drawn either for the purposes of driving a steam turbines or for processing purposes through steam valve located at the top of the tank.
