Purpose-built for steam turbines, Woodward’s powerful controllers have the performance and accuracy required for today’s steam turbine applications.
Our total systems approach necessitates strict adherence to functional safety standards, as well as safety certifying the hardware, software, and production and engineering processes that we use to build our products. Our IEC-61508 SIL-3 certified products are designed for any size steam-, gas-, or hydro-turbine, as well as compressors, engines, and plant process equipment. In addition, Woodward turbine and compressor systems are fully compliant with the petroleum, petrochemical, and natural gas industries’ standards—specifically API-611, -612, -617, -670, and -672.
The patented dirt tolerant and self-cleaning technology of Woodward’s VariStroke actuators ensure greater overall reliability of your steam turbine.
Magnetic pickups are used to control the speed of a prime mover, speed controls compare actual speed to desired, or set, speed.
