Process steam

from Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Process steam is water vapor that is used to supply process heat for a manufacturing process. Often it is " the basis for further energetic use according to the concept of combined heat and power ". The steam is also used less often for material purposes.

Usage example

For example, paper mills often use steam to produce and dry the paper. In the case of Rheinpapier , this process steam is supplied by the neighboring power plants, the Goldenberg power plant, and the three other power plants in the Knapsack Chemical Park , where the steam is previously generated by burning lignite and used to drive a turbine to generate electricity, resulting in a synergy effect .
