Chessie System Railroad 614 ,Working Steam Hard 1981


Picking a spot where I was sure to see the 614 work hard uphill, I was not let down. It would be a struggle to come out of the hole onto the ruling grade on the New Castle Sub Division.This scene used to be an everyday occurance for steam . Listen to the engine work into the grade and slow as the load becomes a hard pull. The steam being used begins to squeeze by the valves and squeels in protest. Turn up the volume, listen and enjoy the last day of June 1981.

Cyclone WHE Biomass Generator System


See the Cyclone Waste Heat Engine generating electricity from wood pellets. Video shot on 9/8/09 is narrated by Harry Schoell (inventor) and Allen Brown (chief engineer) giving the specifics of operation on this portable power plant. The WHE is capable of running on Biomass, Solar and Waste Heat of other engines.

Can we replace the journal bearing system in heavy steam turbines by “Magnetic field” like in “bullet train” ?

System Engineers manufactures Process equipment in Carbon steel, Alloy steel, stainless steel types: SA 516 GR 60, 70, SA 240- TP 304,316,321 etc. Equipment offered are:

Storage Vessels & Reaction Vessels

â?¢ As per ASME codes. The storage vessels are made in capacity ranging from 5000 lt. To

  100,000 lt. Both in horizontal as well as vertical construction.

â?¢ Agitated vessels: Vessels with jacket/limpet/internal coil. Vessels with different types of

   stirrers: Anchor, propeller, turbine etc.

â?¢ Multi shaft specialized dispersion vessels.

System Engineers Storage Calorifiers offer vast rage for Industrial and Domestic Hot water supply systems. Specially designed Very High efficiency Heat Exchanger provide most Economical solutions. System Engineers Calorifiers would use various different Primary Heating Systems.

Low temperature hot water is the most common means of heating. Flows are usually based on a temperature drop of 11°C(from 8271°c)

Medium temperature hot water systems are generally designed on a temperature drop 30°C (from 12090°C).

High temperature hot water systems are generally y designed on a temperature drop of 40°C (from 150110°C).Another important factor in the selection of primary water heating systems is the working pressure. Where the primary working pressure is greater than the shell design pressure the calorifier must be fitted with a bursting disc sized in accordance with the requirements of BS 853. Primary water pressure drops are generally not greater than 25kPa.

Steams is an ideal medium for water heating. The heat exchangers can be designed to accommodate a wide range of pressures, although most users prefer to have calorifiers operating with pressures below 10 Bar g. Superheated steam can be accommodated and the degree of superheat should always be stated at the enquiry stage.

Thermal oils have the benefit of high temperature combined with low operating pressures. The heat exchangers are generally manufactured from stainless steel, depending on oil type.

At System Engineers, Calorifier vessel is Designed as per ASME code where as Heat Exchanger follows TEMA standards. System Engineers is Certified ISO 9001:2000 company, accordingly a full material trace ability is offered. Third party inspection control can be accommodated. This requirement must be stipulated at the quotation stage.

Commercial Calorifiers

All commercial calorifiers carry a name plate specifying the following:

– Date of Manufacture

– Maximum working pressure, test pressure

– Calorific Capacity

Stainless Steel Shells

Austenitic Stainless Steel SS 304L & 316L is suitable for storage calorifiers, it contains Chromium, Nickel, Molybdenum and has a low carbon content 0.003% to improve corrosion resistance after welding. The passivity and general corrosion resistance of Austenitic stainless steel is excellent but they do suffer from chloride attack.

Good manufacturing techniques and a correct post manufacture treatment to restore the stainless steel to its original properties can reduce the susceptibility but complete corrosion attack can not be prevented.

U-Tube Battery For Calorifier

This is the most common type of heat exchanger used in calorifier manufacturing. High efficiency tubes unaffected by thermal expansion provide extremely high levels of reliability. To ensure a high heat transfer capacity a wide range of multi-pass exchangers are available. Standard bundle arrangements are manufactured from 20mm tube although other diameters are used depending upon the duty requirement. Tubes are generally welded into the tube plates. For tube bundles with straight lengths greater than 1250mm support baffles are fitted as standard. In order to ease disassembly batteries greater than 350mm in diameter are fitted with a tapped hole to accept a lifting eye. In addition runner wheels, collar bolts and starting screws can be supplied. Tubes are available in copper & stainless steel.

Single pipe steam heating system, what does the top and bottom values on the water level gauge do?

Are they supposed to be closed or open? I am assuming closed because on some sites that I read they say you need to open them once a month but they were open and I had to add water to the system almost daily when it is colder. This is my first winter in this house so I am clueless about steam heating systems.

I came home to a flooded kitchen floor because water was coming out of the vent vapor value on the raditator. I have read this site http://www.cool-info.co.uk/brines_steam/steam_heating/stm_heating.html which has a lot of good info but still unsure of the values.

Also the switch that controls the air/steam/water pressure, how do you figure what that should be set at?
