Coppus Steam Turbine
|This is a small turbine used to drive a pump or fan in industry
|Steam turbines are HEAT engines
|They convert the heat energy from steam into mechanical energy that rotates the shaft.
|Nozzle: First converts heat into kinetic energy by the expansion of the steam.
|this high velocity steam is directed onto the blades
|Rotor Blades: Convert this kinetic energy into mechanical work which rotates the shaft
|Impulse Velocity Compound
|100 to 180 PSI. Pounds per square inch
|Appx 10 PSI
|9 inches (23cm)
