Boiler Feed Pumps & Surge Tanks

Shipco Boiler Feed Pumps & Surge Tanks

Designed to provide feedwater to a boiler. A level controller on the boiler activates the boiler feed pumps. Both atmospheric tanks and pressurized tanks are available with or without a direct injection style heater (sometimes called a preheat tube). Pressurized tanks can be ASME code constructed or ASME code stamped. Tanks material may be cast iron, black steel or stainless steel; black steel tanks maybe epoxy-lined or plasite-lined. A typical package includes the receiver, feed pumps assembled and piped, along with a mounted, pre-wired control panel. Unit can be elevated on steel frame

A surge tank increases the storage capacity of boiler feed system. It performs similar function to a boiler feed unit except it feeds a deaerator instead of a boiler. A surge tank is typically used on systems having more than 20% hot condensate returns. Two designs are available—either a two-compartment style (deaerator models with “2C”) or a two-tank style (deaerator models with “2T”). The tank can be floor-mounted or elevated
