The mechanical steam separator can divert up to 50% of the generated steam from the fiber flow for recycling in the pre-steaming bin.
At the first mill scale trail at BHW Beeskow, the PeriVapor mechanical steam separator recycles 4-5 tonnes (about 6 bar) steam per hour. The mill has its own facility for producing steam for a turbine for production of electricity. The reduced amount of steam the pre-steaming bin requires is now passed to the steam turbine. Today about 1.4 MW/h more electricity is produced in the steam turbine. This electricity can be sold to the grid as green electricity at a favorable price.
