The main aim of the current work is to increase operation efficiency and reliability of moisture separator-reheaters and turbines of NPPs. As the experience from MSR-500-1 operation showed the presence of large disperse moisture leads stops of the turbine. The high wetness level of steam downstream of separating devices observed since the first years of operation. Results from tests of the modernized separator-reheaters of the first unit at the Smolensk NPP with «Powervane» louvers developed by Balcke-Durr company are presented. Results from studies on the determination of wetness of the steam at the outlet from the separating part of the MSR-14, MSR-24, which demonstrate advantages of modernized construction are discussed. Modernization of separator-reheaters of the turbines TG-1, TG-2 resulted in eliminating non-uniformity of wetness over the perimeter and height of the steam space downstream the separation units. Success in modernization was caused by arranging separate outlets for moisture depositing at the walls, bottom of the inlet chamber. According to the results of the carried out studies an average value of the wetness at the outlet of the separation units was 0.6% which is close to the design value 0.5%.
