Boiler-feed pumps are designed to provide feed water to a boiler. A level controller on the boiler activates the boiler-feed pumps. Atmospheric tanks are available with or without a direct injection-style heater (sometimes called a preheat tube). Tank material may be black steel or stainless steel. A typical package includes the receiver, feed pumps (assembled and piped), along with a mounted, pre-wired control panel. Unit can be elevated on a steel frame if necessary.
Boiler-feed pumps will help you:
- Achieve substantial energy savings and operating efficiency by raising the temperature of the boiler-feed water
- Prevent thermal shock to the boiler (boiler-feed unit) or to the deaerator (surge tank) by raising the temperature of the feed water
- Prevent today's smaller, modern boilers from running dry
