In one of our unit, we kept two restriction orifices in sea water return line (72") to create back pressure for adequate sea water distribution to other units. Now the problem is these orifices are choking with plastic material, which was lined inside a cement lined carbon steel piping. What I am thinking is generating power using this stream. If I do this, I can remove the orifices. Sea water return is available at 4.5 Kg/cm²g and 50°C @ 15000 m³/h. Can I go ahead with power generation using a turbine? Can anybody guide me in this?
