Blowdown Tanks

What is boiler blowdown?
As the boiler makes steam, all of the solids in the boiler water are left behind and accumulate. Boiler blowdown provides a safe and consistent way to remove these solids before they can accumulate to a level that would damage your boiler.

Rite Boilers manufactures blowdown tanks for your boiler room. An ASME blowdown tank provides a safe reservoir for your boiler blowdown. Rite Blowdown Tanks may be used for intermittent blowdown service as shown or with the addition of an automatic aftercooler system for continuous blowdown or multiple boiler blowoff service.

All Rite Blowdown Tanks feature tangential blowdown inlet nozzles with half-inch thick full circumference wear plates for improved blowdown performance and extended tank life over other designs.

Blowdown….Tank or Separator? Blowdown separators require temperature regulating valves and large volumes of cold fresh water running to cool the discharge. Rite Blowdown tanks provide a large reservoir to allow the blowoff to cool and temper the next, thus insuring a safe, low volume discharge every time you blowdown. Compare our standard features below and see why one choice stands out - the Rite choice.

ASME blowdown tanks must have vent, drain and blowdown inlet connections. The units are typically provided as freestanding units complete with stands.
