Ancillary equipment for steam boilers

04 May 2016

• Blowdown Vessels Blowdown vessels are designed to reduce the pressure of the blowdown discharge from the boiler to atmospheric pressure, and also reduces the blowdown discharge to drain to acceptable temperatures for compliance to water bylaws.

The blowdown vent can be capped with a blower exhaust head, which incorporates a condensation drain

·         8 Models: 16 litres – 1260 litres

·         Manufactured to PD5500 & PED

 

  • Feedwater and condensate return tanks

A steam boiler is just one part of a well-designed steam system. A means to collect condensate and handle blowdown water are necessary processes for nearly all steam systems.

Water level controls, steam injection system, and atmospheric deaerator heads are optional and can be supplied to complement the system.

• FS vertical tank
Five models: 200 to 1500 litres
Stainless steel construction
Maintenance and inspection access

• HT horizontal tank
Seven models: 1000 to 8000 litres
Stainless steel construction
Maintenance and inspection access
Available on a prefabricated stand

 

  • Water Treatment

Water treatment should be implemented as part of the boiler system design to prolong the life of the boiler.

• Water softeners
The most common form of water pre-treatment is water softening. The water softeners remove the hardness from the water, and replaces them with non-hardness forming sodium salts.

The Fulton Duplex range of water softeners is fully rechargeable and using the two vessel system, supply constant, uninterrupted, treated feed water to the boiler.

• Chemical dosing
Impurities within the boiler feed water can cause problems with the efficiency of steam boilers and steam systems. It is usually necessary to chemically treat the feed water to remove or modify impurities.

Fulton’s chemical dosing sets doses chemicals into either the condensate return / feed water tank or boiler feed water line.

• Water sample cooler
In order to ensure the safe, efficient and economical running of a boiler plant, it is imperative that the boiler water is sampled for analysis at regular intervals.

The Fulton water sample cooler has been designed to facilitate the monitoring of the boiler water to be taken from the boiler in a safe manner.

The sample cooler cools the boiler water to an appropriate temperature for safe handling.

• RO (reverse osmosis) plant
RO systems convert water to ultrapure water. Used with a stainless steel pressure vessel, they will produce very high quality steam. RO plant can be easily skid-mounted.
