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. You can find these types of industrial products on Cotter Marketing, where they deal with different Mechanical Seal Types as well as others. 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.
How Does a Pitbull Industrial Pump Build in Reliability?
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.
How Do We Design Hot Condensate Return Pumps to Handle the Heat?
Pitbull condensate return 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. You might also want to look into other seal alternatives that can handle high temperatures and pressures without leaking any contaminants through the seal, you’re able to get more information on such shaft seals should you need various seals for more challenging environments.
