What are Condensate Recovery Pumps?

Condensate recovery is an important part of every steam system. When steam condenses completely, an equal amount of condensate is formed. And that condensate can be used to make more steam, saving you money by reducing the amount of charges on treatment chemicals, water, and fuel, and by making your boiler more efficient.

Pumps play a large role in the condensate recovery process. Spirax Sarco, a leading manufacturer of steam products, makes a range of pumps and pump traps to fit the unique needs of a variety of steam producers.

Their Pivotrol Pump series and PPEC pumps are non-electric pumps designed to transfer high temperature condensate from a low point, low pressure or vacuum space to an area of higher pressure or higher elevation.

Their APT line of Automatic Pump Traps are self-contained, non-electric units that combine the functions of a pump and trap to remove condensate from process equipment under all operating conditions.

As an authorized distributor of Spirax Sarco, we stock replacement parts for APT, PPEC, PTF, Pivotrol and many other pump styles. Cooney Brothers can also help you select the proper condensate recovery pump and ancillaries needed for your operation. Contact us today to learn more about implementing condensate recovery.
