Steam Generator

The steam generator is the heat exchanger installed adjacent to the reactor in the containment building and used to transfer thermal energy produced in the reactor to thermal energy in the steam. The bulk of the heat generated in the reactor is used to convert the feedwater into steam in the shell and tube heat exchanger. Steam generated, passes through moisture separators prior to exiting to remove entrained water and delivers a dry steam to the superheater. Additional heat is added to the steam in the superheater, another shell and tube heat exchanger.
