In this section you will gain fascinating insights into a real steam and condensate system.
Explore and get to grips with the inner workings of processes that you can never see in real life.
Watch various exciting movies – all shot in Bremen at the world's only full scale glass model – to find out more about what is actually going on inside a steam and condensate system.
This video demonstrates the thermal dearation of feedwater for steam boilers. To explain the process of dearation, we will use the glass steam regenerator of the company GESTRA AG, Bremen.
This video shows the thermal processes taking place during the generation of saturated steam in a glass steam boiler. This is demonstrated with the aid of the glass evaporator built by GESTRA AG, Bremen.
Steam Trap UNA16: This video looks at condensate discharge using the ball float trap, type UNA 16, as demonstrated in the glass steam system of GESTRA AG, Bremen.
Steam Trap MK45: This video looks at condensate discharge by means of the thermostatic steam trap with membrane regulator, type MK 45, as demonstrated in the glass steam system of GESTRA AG, Bremen.
In this film clip, the origin and effect of thermal pressure pulses, generally known as waterhammer, will be demonstrated.
