Steam Tips: News and Information



Tip 1

TO MINIMIZE CONDENSATION PROBLEMS ASSOCIATED WITH STEAM DISCHARGE ALWAYS:

  1. PITCH STEAM AND CONDENSATE PIPES A MINIMUM OF 2"/10 FT
  2. INSULATE PIPING WITH MINIMUM OF 2" HIGH TEMP. INSULATION

OF COURSE, THE BEST ALTERNATIVE IS TO LOCATE YOUR ELECTRIC STEAM BOILER CLOSE TO YOUR STEAM PROCESS.

Tip 2

MINIMIZE THE BUILDUP OF CALCIUM & OTHER MINERAL DEPOSITS IN YOUR BOILER:

  1. UTILIZE A COMMERCIAL WATER SOFTENER FOR FEED.
  2. BLOWDOWN THE BOILER DAILY. ENSURE BLOWDOWN IS SAFELY PIPED.

REIMERS #OPT1016 AUTOFLUSH WILL PROVIDE A TIMED DAILY BLOWDOWN ON THOSE SYSTEMS NOT RUNNING 24/7.
