Steam Systems V: Condensate Removal - Maximizing Your Recovery
* Identify different methods of Steam Trap Testing * List the downfalls of By-Passes Around Steam Traps * Describe the importance of Preventative Maintenance Programs * Recognize the various considerations in selecting a Steam Trap * Name the three components of sizing a Steam Trap * Describe the impact of Waterlogging on Steam Systems * Identify the three methods for Lifting of Condensate
In Steam Systems part one, we discussed the overall advantages and basics of steam as source of energy. In part two, we looked at the impact of boiler sizing, pressure and velocity on overall system efficiency. During part three, we reviewed the distribution, control and regulation of steam, and in part four we learned how to prevent energy from going down the drain by implementing proper condensate removal strategies. Now we will further explore condensate removal and show you how to maximize your recovery with considerations for choosing traps, proper testing and sizing of traps and options for how to lift the condensate. To ensure your steam system enjoys a long and full life cycle, we'll summarize a preventative maintenance program. The downfalls of by-passes, and impact of waterlogging will also be discussed. Steam has come a long way from its traditional associations with locomotives and the Industrial Revolution. Today, it serves as an integral and essential part of modern technology. This course will introduce the benefits of utilizing steam in numerous processes and discuss t selecting the appropriate pressures for each of these different processes.
