SOMAS bleed valves are used in gas turbines to handle excess air produced by the turbine compressors during start up, stopping or quick closing. Bleed valves discharge excess air from one or several of the turbine compressors. SOMAS butterfly valves are used to control or close these air flows.
SomBook is a tool where we have collected our many years of experience about valve options, material options as well as other important information about the valves we suggest for specific applications. Achieving the best possible result when using SOMAS control valves is important because using the right size valve can offer you a great opportunity to save money. The part covering “Power generation” gives you information on different applications and what kind of valve SOMAS recommends for each installation. It also covers recommendations on valve types for different medias.
