Condensate-Recovery Industry

Any process that allows energy contained in Steam condensate to go unutilised, is losing money in terms of fuel costs. Steam condenses to water at saturated temperature and so, depending on the pressure during condensation, the temperature of water may be 100 oC or more.

Flash Steam & Condensate Recovery

The hot condensate coming out of a process typically has 20% of heat energy. Due to lower pressure at the outlet of the process equipment, a part of the condensate flashes into steam called as "flash steam". This flash steam though typically is 5% to 15% by mass has almost 40% to 55% of the total energy of the condensate. The returning of this flash steam & condensate to the feed water tank drives out dissolved oxygen, reduces the quantity of make-up water, reduces the quantity of blow down & improves the boiler feed water temperature and thus lowers the annual fuel bill.

Forbes Marshall offers flash vessels, steam operated pressure powered pumps, FlashJet pumps, condensate contamination detection systems and Thermocompressor systems for ensuring the efficient recovery of flash steam and condensate from process applications. Depending upon the specific applications and plant layouts our engineers can suggest the ideal solution for maximizing the condensate recovery factor and save fuel costs.
