Boiler - accessories
Pressuretrols to control the steam pressure in the boiler. Boilers generally have 2 or 3 pressuretrols: a manual-reset pressuretrol, which functions as a safety by setting the upper limit of steam pressure, the operating pressuretrol, which controls when the boiler fires to maintain pressure, and for boilers equipped with a modulating burner, a modulating pressuretrol which controls the amount of fire.
Safety valve: It is used to relieve pressure and prevent possible explosion of a boiler.
Water level indicators: They show the operator the level of fluid in the boiler, also known as a sight glass, water gauge or water column.
Bottom blowdown valves: They provide a means for removing solid particulates that condense and lie on the bottom of a boiler. As the name implies, this valve is usually located directly on the bottom of the boiler, and is occasionally opened to use the pressure in the boiler to push these particulates out.
Continuous blowdown valve: This allows a small quantity of water to escape continuously. Its purpose is to prevent the water in the boiler becoming saturated with dissolved salts. Saturation would lead to foaming and cause water droplets to be carried over with the steam ? a condition known as priming. Blowdown is also often used to monitor the chemistry of the boiler water.
Flash tank: High-pressure blowdown enters this vessel where the steam can 'flash' safely and be used in a low-pressure system or be vented to atmosphere while the ambient pressure blowdown flows to drain.
Automatic blowdown/continuous heat recovery system: This system allows the boiler to blowdown only when makeup water is flowing to the boiler, thereby transferring the maximum amount of heat possible from the blowdown to the makeup water. No flash tank is generally needed as the blowdown discharged is close to the temperature of the makeup water.
Common failures of hydraulic systems
Plumbing provide us comfort use of water in our homes. Thanks to them increases our comfort, but sometimes they also experience some problems. In many of them there are defects that cause us a lot of disadvantages, the most common failure of this type are broken pipe, broken seals, clogged drains and the like. Not every such failure can repair itself, and is of great importance here, of course, time. The sooner we get rid of it the better, so you should call in this case the appropriate service to take care of it. Today, we find many of them, so it will not be for us to pose any problem. It is better to immediately deal with failure, because the longer we wait, the more it will cause inconvenience.
Calculation of charges for water consumption
To the houses is supplied cold water, which then needs to be warmed by their owners according to the adopted by them the way. In order to heat the water are established by plumbers boilers that can run on electricity or gas, they may also be connected to the central heating. Then throughout the year you have to smoke in the oven, to be able to use the hot water. More and more are also known ways to reheat the water during the summer, using for this purpose solar energy entering the house through a special window openings. At the same time preserved it must be divided into hot and cold water taps on symbolized by the blue and red color. The basic fee is calculated based on water consumption is a fee for cold water and sewage.
