Expected savings: Loss prevention keeping heat transfer surfaces clean and reliable for years of trouble free operation
System configuration: Dual Parallel. On-Board Controller has a relay to indicate start and stop of regeneration process on each polisher vessel.
The plants in house DCS system then ramps down the flow rate to each condensate polisher based upon regeneration schedule and times
Materials of construction: Pressure vessels are 304 stainless steel with 125 psig ASME code stamped
All face piping is welded and flanged Schedule 40 SS 304ss welded to B31.1 standards
Valve and actuators type All automated valves are Bray valve Lug style for 150 ANSI flanges.
