Steam Flow and Steam Turbines

This interactive training unit is designed to familiarize trainees with the basic principles associated with the construction and operation of steam turbines. After completing this unit, trainees should be able to state the functions of the main parts of a typical turbine and describe how steam causes impulse blades and reaction blades to turn a turbine’s wheels. They should also be able to describe the purpose and operation of a gland steam seal system, a gland steam seal exhaust system, a carbon seal, and a water seal.
