    <<< Previous This picture shows the Purge Silencer (~1980). This was used for the steam purge of the boilers after construction. This was connected into the main steam line after the boiler stop valves. The pipework to the turbine was disconnected. The boilers were fired up to pressure and the stop valves were opened until the steam was blown through this silencer and the pressure had dropped. This procedure was repeated until all the debris had been cleared from the system. This was the first time a silencer had been employed for this activity. On previous occasions in other power stations, the purge pipe just exited from a window in the boiler-house.
