Steel Horizontal Vacuum and Make-up Boiler Feed Unit

Vacuum Pumps & Producers

Steel Horizontal Vacuum and Condensate unit with independent air and water pumps. Multi-jet design proven effective and reliable for removing air and lifting hot condensate in the return system. A standard heavy gauge black steel receiver from 3/16" to 3/8" thick provided for years of services. Receiver is divided into two compartments: one side is used for collecting hot condensate and the other side is the vacuum chamber. Standard unit designed for applications with system capacities ranging up from 1,000 square feet EDR; air pumps range up from 6 cubic feet per minute (cfm) at 5-1/2" HG at 160°F. Unit completely packaged, including electrical controls.

Units are available in either simplex or duplex configuration with either 1750 RPM or 3500 RPM motors in either single or three phase. Pumps are flange mounted to the receiver and equipped with industry standard motors. Pumps bronze-fitted with removable bronze wearing ring and with mechanical seals rated for temperatures up to 250°F. Higher temperature seals and special faces available upon request.

Air and water pumps can be sized separate for customized applications that standard unit configurations can not meet.

Type SHVM is the boiler feed unit version of the SHVC. An electrical solenoid make-up water valve with float switch control is standard. A low water cut-off switch is furnished to prevent pumps from operating should the make-up water assembly fail to prevent the pumps from running dry and burning up the mechanical seals. Numerous options are available.
