Steam Drum Retrofit | Gas Liquid Separators
Dyna-Therm Corporation was formed in Houston, Texas in the late 1950s. Inventors and engineers at Dyna-Therm began experimenting with and studying the physical properties involved in mechanical separation.
Bruce Wright was one of the driving forces in the invention of the Dyna-Therm design for the Whirl-A-Way, a single-stage, centrifugal separator. At that time, Dyna-Therm began to manufacture separators utilizing this design.
In the mid 1970s, the current owner and President, F. S. “Scottie” Lyons, began testing new designs in order to improve efficiency and quality of separation. From his endeavors, Dyna-Therm established new guidelines for designing centrifugal separators. These improved standards enabled Dyna-Therm to develop highly efficient separators such as the CC and DRLH.
At the same time, Mr. Lyons optimized the design for steam drums. Since then, Dyna-Therm steam drums have exceeded all design expectations, generating the highest purity steam drum available today.
Due to the industry need for high purity steam, Dyna-Therm has been and continues to be approached by engineers across the industry to help resolve steam quality issues. Dyna-Therm has succeeded in designing steam drum internals that can be retrofitted to existing drums during turn arounds. The modifications of internals restore or improve the steam quality, effectively protecting downstream equipment and increasing operations cost savings. The high purity steam is generated after the revamp using the existing drum while lowering installation costs without re-certifying the vessel.
