Steam boiler:

  • Steam flow : 250kg/h
  • Working pressure : 9 bars
  • Burner feeding :
  • Natural gas or fuel (on demand)
  • Working mode : permanent presence

The boiler should be provided with :

  • pressure manometer, two level glass sights, safety valve, draining valve
  • check valve and feeding valve on the water circuit
  • electric cabinet with audible alarm
  • water level controller
  • pressure controller
  • Dimensions : 2032x1561x1694mm
  • Working weight : 1700Kgs

Utilities :

It should comes with :

  • electric cabinet supplying power to all the elements
  • water feeding line with a water meter, a backflow preventer, a filter, a manometer, a pressure reducer and all necessary
  • a volumetric softener with salt tank
  • some valves for samples
  • water tank (250L) made of stainless steel with lateral level sight
  • a dosing pump

Reducing valves:

  • the line allows to test two different reducing valves
  • each reducing valve has a stop valve before and after and a Y shaped filter
  • two different technologies are used (pilot operated pressure reducing valve and direct acting reducing valve)
  • a third line with a valve allows to bypass reducing valves

Control valves :

  • the line allows to test two different control valves
  • valves control the steam flow, depending from the water temperature at the outlet of the exchanger
  • each control valve has a stop valve before and after and a Y shaped filter
  • there is an electric actuator and a mechanical actuator
  • a third line with a valve allows to bypass control valves

Steam condenser :

  • the exchanger is tubular type and is cooled with water
  • the cooling power is designed to fit with the maximal steam flow generated by the boiler (about 130KW)
  • it is equipped with temperature sensors on the different circuits -it is equipped with a water flowmeter
  • it includes a vacuum breaker to avoid degradation when the steam condensates
  • condensates go to steam traps

Steam traps :

  • -the line includes five steam traps
  • -each steam trap consists in a different technologie (thermodynamic, inverted bucket, bimetallic, ball float and balanced pressure)
  • -each steam trap is equipped with a sight glass and stop valve
  • -condensates go back to the water tank

Water cooling circuit :

  • Cooling unit outside
  • the cooling circuit includes a centrifugal pump
  • Cooling unit :
  • Average power : 140KW
  • local electric cabinet with emergency stop
  • fans are controlled by a temperature switch
  • the structure is corrosion resistant
  • fans are protected
  • stop valves on the outlet and inlet
  • drain valve

Others characteristics :

  • the equipment include a pump (operated by steam) for condensate return
  • the equipment also include a blowdown tank.
  • the equipment will be fitted to laboratory
