Non-code condensate receiver tanks are recommended when there is a high rate of condensate return and minimal make-up water is required. Precision Boilers Model CF feedwater systems are designed to receive condensate and prepare it for return to the boiler. They can also be paired with a deaerator to accommodate condensate surges that would otherwise be lost through the deaerator’s overflow drain. Precision Boilers’ CF feedwater systems are custom designed to include the appropriate pump and control packages that best fit the application requirements.
Features & Benefits
Condensate receiving storage tanks are non-code, vented and fabricated from ¼-inch thick carbon steel
Mounted on structural steel stand with pumps mounted on base
Pre-piped and pre-wired prior to shipment (pump NPSH requirement determines stand height)
Standard water level control is a float activated make-up water valve that adds fresh water to replace condensate lost through the steam loop or to the process
The float assembly is installed inside tank (standard) or can be externally mounted and piped to sight-glass water column.
Control panel mounted on the stand contains fused magnetic starters, switches, lights, alarms, and controls
An optional Sparge-Tube Preheater installed inside the storage tank below surface of condensate injects boiler supplied steam that reheats the condensate to the prescribed temperature (212°F) before pumping it as feedwater to the boiler(s). Feedwater pumps can be configured for various control setups, including intermittent duty (on-off pump/motor control), continuous-run (with pump recirculation loop), or precisely modulated by a Variable Frequency Drive control for improved efficiency and energy savings.
