Hot condensate return pumps are used to return hot condensate from the distribution system to the boilers, and can be found at facility utilities, universities, government buildings, hospitals, power plants, or anywhere that handles hot condensate or high temperature sump conditions. Conventional hot condensate return pumps are prone to significant maintenance or failure of seals or motors from the high temperature conditions. The Pitbull pneumatic displacement pump is free of the mechanical complications of float operated, pressure-powered pumps and the cavitation problems of centrifugal pumps.
The Pitbull Pump design is motor-less, eliminating seals, impellers and diaphragms, so there are no seals and no motor to fail under high temperature conditions. Compressed air is used to move liquids into and out of the chamber, and since there are no moving parts or motors, no wear occurs. There are no mechanical devices or floats inside the pump chamber. Because it requires only compressed air to operate, the all-pneumatic design also is inherently explosion-proof.
Designed to Handle the Heat
Pitbull Pumps are specially configured for direct connection to a flash tank/receiver, and are unaffected by the extreme temperatures. All controls are completely separate from the pump and can be serviced or replaced without handling the hot pump, an important safety consideration for plant personnel.
