15 Ways To Increase Boiler Efficiency | Rasmussen Mechanical

Recover Heat from Boiler Blowdown. Much like the return of condensate to the boiler, recovering the heat from the boiler blowdown can increase boiler efficiency. The blowdown valve is used to remove boiler water which contains soluble and insoluble solids. It helps reduce the level of dissolved solids in the boiler water to prevent the boiler

Condensate Heat Recovery | JBC

Condensate Heat recovery Depending on the process (usually a close loop system) the temperature and amount of condensate returning back to the hotwell can cause vibration and excessive flash steam emitting from the vent. This is because the hot condensate flashes off to steam as the pressure in the system collapses. In effect, the water in the hotwell is boiling.

Is your boiler condensate pipe leaking? Here's what to do!

The heat exchanger of your boiler is broken. The condensate trap and pipe come straight out of the heat exchanger, which means that if it cracks or pinholes, it will cause system or mains water to drain into the condensate pipe. What may lead to the condensate pipe leaking is if the hot water causes the pipe joints to fail somehow.
