13.5   Steam supply and drains systems


The heating steam for the majority of modern re-heaters is bled from the HP turbine to the first-stage reheat and supplied from the live steam pipework for the second-stage reheat. Reheater steam temperature control is designed to be completely automatic and requires no intervention from the operator.

A typical diagrammatic arrangement of the live and bled-steam supply and drains system for a combined separator/ reheater is shown in Fig 2.107.
