Impulse Steam Turbines

Impulse Steam Turbines

Designed for top thermodynamic and mechanical performance

These single-flow turbines have impulse blades for high reliability and efficiency over a broad range of operating conditions. Pre-engineered, field-proven stator and rotor components are optimized for the specific thermal cycle and entire operating range of each application.

Modular designs ensure reliability and high performance

  • All our models are available in condensing or backpressure configurations, and we offer various inlet options with single and multi-valve configurations to satisfy all capacity requirements. The turbine exhaust can be either radial or axial. Low-pressure stage options include a large family of three-dimensional stages, and either variable or fixed speed capabilities with high speed/high efficiency families.

    These machines are well suited to industrial power generation (combined cycle, cogeneration, waste-to-energy, biomass), solar power generation, oil and gas applications (refinery, LPG, power generation) and for use as boiler feed pumps. All benefit from the large-scale testing capability at our various oil BHGE facilities.

    MP/MC Series

    Covering applications up to 40 MW, our MP and MC series steam turbines feature multi valves, sliding and/or fixed pressure control, and axial or radial (up/down) exhaust. They accept frequent starts/stops, are optimized with balance of plant equipment, and have a grid valve for extraction/injection control.

    Boiler feed pump

    For these applications, we generally recommend MC units rated up to 30 MW. Their main characteristics are high reliability and efficiency over a broad speed range with modules available in single or dual admission. Their modular design enables a high degree of customization for large fossil power generation optimization.

    P/C Series

    With a power range up to 6 MW and speed range of 3,000 to 15,000 rpm, the P/C series is ideal for small mechanical drive applications. Like MP/MC, these units are highly reliable and efficient over a broad operating range, and can be used in backpressure or condensing configurations. The key differences from MP and MC are that P/C units are single valve.

    Impulse Steam Turbines from BHGE provide many advantages for customers, including:

    • High reliability
    • High efficiency
    • Condensing or backpressure configuration options
    • Large-scale testing capability available
