ADCAMAT PUMPS & PUMP TRAPS

POPS | DN25 - DN80

The ADCAMAT POP (Pressure Operated Pump), fabricated in carbon steel (stainless steel on request), is recommended in the transfer of high-temperature liquids such as condensate, oils and others, to a higher elevation or pressure. Under certain conditions, it can drain a closed vessel under vacuum or pressure. The pump can be operated by steam, compressed air or other gases, and can be used for lifting any kind of non-corrosive liquids.

PPT14

The ADCAMat PPT14 automatic pump trap is especially recommended where stall condition may occur due to poor steam trap condensate discharge capacity, caused by temporary insufficient pressure drop. The equipment combines the features of a float steam trap and a pressure operated pump, in one single unit. Whenever the steam trap function is incapable of draining condensate, the pump function is activated (using external steam pressure). The pump replaces the necessary positive pressure to lift the condensate to the return system, before water-logging occurs, avoiding water hammer and consequent noise, equipment damage, corrosion, unstable temperature control, etc.

STEAM ACCESSORIES

SI20

The SI20 series steam injectors from ADCA are condensate injectors. They ensure low noise and vibration and rapid heating of still or flowing fluids in basins and vessels due to direct steam injection. Steam enters through the inlet housing, passes along the center of the heater, through holes in the inner rings, through spaces between the element plates where it condensates under light load and partly condensates under heavy load to be discharged through the serrated periphery of the element plates. Under heavy load, if any steam passes through the periphery of the element plates, will do so in very small jets and will condensate in the surrounding liquid with very little noise and vibration.

The ADCA flash condensing heads are designed to promote energy efficiency on new or existing systems. Mixing the flash steam with the boiler make-up water allows the energy within the flash steam to be fully absorbed into the water and therefore reduces energy waste that normally occurs from the discharge of flash steam through a vent. The main advantages over some traditional systems are that it is possible to make most of the piping connections in a single and compact mixing unit and that a greater heat recovery efficiency can be achieved.

The wastewater is discharged into the unit, which is at atmospheric pressure, and the cooling water enters through a control valve controlled by a thermostat, mixing it with the hot water. If flash steam can not be recovered or discharged to the atmosphere, an additional condensing water spray system (optional) can be supplied. It is fitted into the top of the unit and can be controlled directly, either by another thermostat or by the same command used for the automatic blowdown valve control.

BFT

The BFT boiler feed tank is one of the most important devices in a boiler room. Its main function is to store the make-up water and condensate, assuring a reserve of treated water to supply to the steam boilers. The make-up water has to be softened to prevent scale formation on the boiler and the oxygen also has to be removed, so that corrosion in the boiler and steam system is avoided (this situation is normally handled by specialists). The consumption of chemicals used to eliminate the oxygen can be drastically reduced if you use one of the several ADCATherm thermal degasification processes (ADG, TDG, FCD) for the removal of oxygen and other non-condensable gases (mainly carbon dioxide). Even if you choose not to use one of the mentioned systems, the ADCATherm boiler feed tanks will always be optimized according to the existing needs, therefore being able to include water pre-heating, as well as other features obvious to a true steam expert, but not to a simple tank manufacturer.

COMPLIMENTARY EQUIPMENT

AS

The AS series centrifugal air and dirt separators were designed to be used in the flow line of a hydronic heater or cooling system. The operation is based on the principle of centrifugal force, instead of relying on low-velocity separation, offering the advantage of efficient separation in a smaller vessel. The ADCA AS units provides maximum separation efficiency while minimizing space requirements. The inside strainer protects against any dirt present in the system such as sand, welding residues, etc. The strainer screen position has a particular advantage compared with external pipe strainers because the dirt is removed from the water flow and is collected in the reservoir bottom, avoiding pressure drop increase.

HCC

The HCC is a cooling device that allows the mixing of hot condensate with a lower temperature condensate, avoiding hammering. Condensate discharge from higher pressure lines (drip points, for instance) is often connected to low-pressure condensate lines, with lower temperatures. This sudden pressure drop will convert the sensible heat difference between the two fluid conditions into latent heat, generating flash steam. Flash steam has a much bigger volume than condensate and, when mixed with the cold condensate, it will cool suddenly, imploding and causing hammering (noise and vibration). The HCC avoids this phenomenon since it slowly cools down the hot condensate which circulates inside a coil, surrounded by cold condensate which circulates according to the thermo-siphon physical laws.

LIPO

The LIPO series condensate lifting pots are used for rising condensate to elevated pipes, eliminating steam and water hammering. When the condensate is elevated to the condensate main at a higher level, the flash steam formed at a steam traps outlet condenses, due to contact with colder condensate and steam bubbles implode, reducing its volume while passing to the liquid state. The vacuum is then suddenly formed and, when filled again with the incoming condensate, it causes a water hammer. The air and flash steam cushion formed in the upper part of the lifting pot absorbs any shock, while in the bottom the condensate operates as a sealing liquid.
