    Steam Turbines



    are devices that convert kinetic energy to mechanical energy

    They have special rotors that rotate as steam strikes them.

    Used as drivers for pumps, compressors and electric power generation


    Fuel burned in the boiler releases heat, which boils water and converts it into high-pressure superheated steam.

    The steam enters a turbine where it expands and pushes against blades to turn the generator shaft to create electric current.

    After the steam passes through the turbine, condensers convert it to water, which is then returned by pumps to the boiler to repeat the cycle.
