Boiler blowoff is an essential part of maintenance. If not performed regularly, the dissolved solids entering the boiler with the feed water accumulate at the bottom of the pressure vessel to form sludge. Sludge reduces heating efficiency in all boilers, and sludge accumulation in electric boilers will cause the heating elements to fail prematurely.
The safest means for performing a boiler blowoff is the use of a blowoff vessel. Reimers Electra Steam, Inc. offers two types of blowoff vessels: vented
Reimers tanks are designed, manufactured, and inspected to the ASME Code, Section VIII and comply with the National Board NB-27 document “A Guide for Blowoff Vessels”. This compliance is required by most State Boiler Laws and Statutes. Always verify Local and State requirements prior to purchase.
Patent Pending Unvented Boiler Blowoff Tanks
The Safer - Simpler - More Cost Effective Blowoff Option
- Costs significantly reduced during installation by eliminating the large vent piping that penetrates floors, walls, and roof.
- No roof penetration means no roof resealing.
- Space saving compact design can be mounted under or near boiler.
- Simple valve operation to release water to floor drain after cooling.
- Safe containment of hot blowoff boiler water eliminates potential exposure to steam and hot water emitted from vented tank designs.
- Patent Pending design meets State Codes for blowoff design.
