The best method for improving steam system energy efficiency, reducing chemical costs, and reducing make-up water costs is to return the maximum quantity of condensate to the boiler plant. Condensate transport and recovery for reuse requires a positive pressure differential from the source to the destination (typically a condensate collection area or return header). Sometimes the steam trap’s inlet pressure may be enough to overcome the backpressure, but more often than not the differential pressure is negative and requires a pump to transfer condensate to a recovery area.
A pumping system is required to transport and recover condensate once the system backpressure becomes higher than the lowest possible trap inlet pressure. Glenn Mechanical can help you determine the best pump for your application, whether it should be a electrically-powered centrifugal, turbine condensate pumps, non-electric steam pumps, air-powered mechanical condensate pumps, or take advantage of other modern technologies.
Glenn Mechanical can install and maintain your steam condensate pump system, including all required piping, with qualified professionals so that you can feel confident that everything is working correctly. Call us today!
