Certainly, though the efficiency of a steam plant depends mostly on its operating pressure and 60# is pretty low.

Thanks russ,
I am trying to utilize the excess 60# steam. Sometimes we vent the excess 60# steam due to low demand due to T&I shutdowns.

Generally, I am looking for an idea to optimize the plant power using the 60# steam.

regards,

Why can't you just turn down the boiler?

This is partial T&I shutdown, the bolier still needed for the running part of the plant.

How much excess steam are we talking about? GE makes relatively small steam turbines - perhaps you could contact them: http://www.gepower.com/prod_serv/products/steam_turbines/en/downloads/steam_brochure.pdf [Broken]
