Nuclear steam dryers are used to reduce the moisture carryover (MCO) to levels often well below 0.1%, by weight, water in the steam. The dryers are designed to provide very high quality steam at the full capacity of the steam generator. The purpose of this paper is to present computational fluid dynamics (CFD) models of the steam flow in a generator and the decisions that are required to evaluate different designs. These computational models are successful and proven in field operations.
