Condensate Return Systems

The term feedwater system and condensate systems are often interchanged. Feedwater systems are defined as the systems that store and pump water into steam boilers. Condensate return units sole purpose is to collect the condensate from different points and pump it to the feedwater tank.
Condensate return units will normally have a level control that will start the pump to transfer the water to the feedwater tank. As the water level in the condensate tank drops the level control will shut the pump off to prevent the pump from running dry.

In smaller systems condensate is collected directly in the feedwater tank eliminating the need for a separate condensate return unit.

Feedwater systems typically receive water from condensate return units or directly from the system steam traps. Make-up water is introduced to the boiler system through a level control in the feedwater tank. The feedwater tank is also where treatment chemicals are normally added.

In smaller systems condensate is collected directly in the feedwater tank eliminating the need for a separate condensate return unit.

Cast Iron Condensate Return System

We offer many configurations for your feedwater systems. This one shows multiple high pressure pumps along with the control panel and aluminum clad insulation.

These vertical steel tanks can be provided as either a condensate return or feedwater set.

For larger systems the horizontal tanks configurations are more typical.  This are also built using 3/8” pressure vessel quality steel plate.
