TLV introduces packaged condensate return system suitable for hospitals and industry
TLV Euro Engineering (Cheltenham, UK)
TLV condensate return system enhances the efficiency of steam systems and can even save operators up to around £24,000 (about US$ 38,000 ) annually in systems running a typical 24/7 steam installation.
Condensate Return Pump (PowerTrap®)
TLV's PowerTrap® pumps condensate mechanically, without any need for electricity.
Two versions of the condensate return systems are available: a 7-tonne system for applications including hospitals and industrial processes; and a 1.2-tonne version.
The system is steam driven and will work at high temperature without risk of cavitation.
- The system is designed to improve efficiency by returning residual heat energy of the condensate (approximately 85°C) to the boiler tank, reducing the energy needed to heat the make-up water (boiler feedwater).
- Systems are compact and have a small footprint in order to facilitate installation.
- Payback can be achieved in less than six months based on a process operating 24/7 with a system saving of 0.5 tonnes of condensate per hour (Period may vary depending on system configuration.)
