Where to buy the best boiler blowdown valve for continuous surface blowdown flow control?


Orifice meter for boiler blowdown flow control

There are several types of boiler blowdown valves and flow control devices available for controlling your boiler’s surface water blowdown. We make an Orifice Meter type valve and they come in two designs, each offering 17 precise and consistent flow rates.

To operate at maximum efficiency, boilers need to continuously dispose of dirty boiler water. Dissolved solids and other sediments can cause your boiler to work harder than it needs to, to produce steam. Intermittently flushing bottom blowdown water and continuously blowing down a small percentage of the boiler’s surface water is a good way to maintain clean and efficient boiling.

And this is done with a meter or blowdown valve.

If you are wondering who has the best boiler blowdown valve for continuous top blowdown flow control, allow us to make a case for their Orifice Meter type blowdown valve.

Our Orifice Meter: for repeatable boiler blowdown flow control

Our Orifice Meter offers control of the continuous blowdown flow rate by utilizing 17 different hole sizes drilled into a hardened stainless steel orifice plate. Each hole is drilled to a diameter that will produce the flow rate shown in our charts on OM_datasheet_2016 pages 3 and 4. To cover a wide range of applications, four different orifice plates (1A, 2A, 3A, and 4A) are available to provide a blowdown flow range suitable for the boiler operator to maintain the target boiler water quality level.

In order to function properly, the boiler must have a continuous blowdown skimmer pipe installed inside the boiler drum, with the opening for the pipe within a half a foot of the normal water level in the boiler drum. Our Orifice Meter can be mounted anywhere between the boiler and the continuous blowdown heat recovery system.

What makes our Orifice Meter special?

Hightlights:

Durable, designed for years of service life, not to be thrown away and replaced

Little maintenance required

500 Brinnell and Stellite finishes on pivotal components

Pieces are lapped together to a light band finish to ensure accuracy and to eliminate leakage.

US manufacturer focuses on great customer service and high quality, durable products. Unlike a lot of valves, Our Orifice Meters are made with a rugged and durable design intended to last for years of service life with little, but extremely easy maintenance required.

Our Orifice Meters utilize a 100 mesh screen to filter out any small particles in the dirty blowdown water that would otherwise plug the blowdown valve orifices. Cleaning this out is as simple as opening the drain valve at the bottom. Done. 

Selector disc and orifice plate for Orifice Meters

Selector disc (left) and orifice plate (right). We offer 4 different orifice plate sizes for both the OM250 and OM650 type Orifice Meters

And then the work horse components that make the orifice meter what it is are the selector disc and orifice plate. Type 420 stainless steel material is used to make the orifice plate. The plate is drilled with 17 holes of increasing size. The orifice plate is heat treated to 500 brinnell hardness and lapped to a mirror finish with a tolerance of three light bands (0.00003”). This lapped finish prevents high pressure boiler blowdown water from leaking through any orifice but the one selected. The 500 brinnell hardness is sprayed on so that the orifice plate can withstand high temperatures without sustaining imperfections.

As for the selector disc, the index slot exposes the desired orifice on the orifice plate for service. This rotates when the adjustment key is turned from one index number to another. The disc has a Stellite surface coating and is lapped to the same finish and flatness as the mating orifice plate to insure a leak free seal. The Stellite finish is a sprayed on component to help the selector disc become extremely wear resistant to the high pressure, hot boiler water.
The 500 brinell hardness on the orifice plate and the Stellite finish on the selector disc ensure our Orifice Meter will withstand the extreme conditions for years of service live. The light band lapped finish ensures that over these years, a solid, leak free connection between the orifice plate and selector disc will remain.

Conclusion

So in conclusion, if you are looking for where you can buy a boiler blowdown flow control valve, look no farther than our Orifice Meter. It is one of the most durable products on the market offering years of service for your continuous boiler blowdown application.

It will help with boiler efficiency and thus save you money. And on top of all of these features, is its simple and straightforward design. Simply turn the adjustment key to the number you need and that size orifice will control your boilers blowdown to maintain a consistent and accurate flow. No complicated electronics or sensitive adjustments with this valve. Just rugged, functional accuracy.

How to size and design a boiler blowoff tank for intermittent bottom boiler blowdown


You probably constantly consider and implement processes and equipment to help keep your boiler water clean. Clean boiler water produces steam more efficiently, thus potentially saving thousands of dollars every year on fuel costs.

You probably constantly consider and implement processes and equipment to help keep your boiler water clean. Clean boiler water produces steam more efficiently, thus potentially saving thousands of dollars every year on fuel costs.

Deaerator tanks, condensate tanks, boiler chemical feed pumps are a few ways boiler feed water is treated to reach optimum efficiency.

 
Don’t devalue the simple task of intermittently blowing down dirty boiler water.

 
Not to be confused with continuous surface blowdown, intermittent bottom blowdown is the process of (usually) manually flushing dirty bottom boiler water out of the boiler. This is often performed 2-3 times throughout the day.

No matter how well boiler water is treated and handled before entering the boiler, when boiling, sediments and dissolved solids will form in the boiler. To this day there is still nothing better than directly flushing the boiler of this dirty water intermittently throughout the day.

And a properly sized blowdown tank is important for safe and legal disposal of the boiler blowoff water.

What is the Purpose/Function of boiler blowoff tanks?

First let’s make sure we understand the function and purpose of a blowoff or blowdown tank. Boiler blowdown tanks are designed to handle a large, somewhat instantaneous flow from the flushing of a boiler. This is normally a 30 second to 1 minute processes. When the hot, high pressure boiler blowdown enters the low pressure blowdown tank, flash steam is created.

The steam leaves the tanks through the vent, which is usually vented to atmosphere, and the remaining hot blowoff water cools naturally at the bottom of the tank for a 6-12 hour period. If sized correctly the initial amount of dirty boiler water remaining after steam has flashed, will reach up to but not leave out the over flow drain until the next boiler blowdown process occurs.

From here on out, the hot blowdown will enter the tank, flash steam will be vented, and the remaining hot water will immediately quench with the since cooled blowdown water and leave out the over flow drain at a temperature under 140 degrees. This is a reoccurring process.

 
So the three most important things to consider when designing a boiler blowdown tank to safely remove the hot, high pressure water are: Vent size to handle flash steam, capacity of tank to hold remaining hot water, and overflow drain size.

How we size boiler blowdown tanks

If you do not already know the capacity of the tank needed, the data required for sizing calculations are: the boiler’s blowdown pipe size, boiler(s) steam drum diameter & length, and the boiler operating pressure.

 
Here’s the process:

We can use the operating pressure to find the percentage of flash steam that will occur when venting to atmosphere

We will then find your pipe capacity flow via the blowdown pipe size. This along with operating pressure will give us an expected blowdown rate.

From here we can adjust the size of our tank diameter, height, vent, and drain size to see what the most cost effective design is, that will safely dispose of your boiler’s hot blowdown water.

Customizing

With the last bulleted point in mind, let us know if you have certain parameters for us to factor in when designing your boiler. We can offer you different heights and widths of tanks based upon your available space. We’ve even designed blowdown tanks to function horizontally when necessary, though it is rare to have height restrictions before floor space restriction.

Our construction of standard boiler blowoff tanks meets ASME Section VII, Div. 1, 50 PSI DWP, and all come with a National Board serial number. If you have extreme requirements that you believe needs a tank with a higher pressure rating, we can do that too. But we encourages all potential customers to call in first as it is likely no matter how high the operating pressure is in your boiler, a 50 PSI tank is more than sufficient enough to handle the blowdown.

Conclusion

If you are currently in the process of a new boiler room installation, make sure to contact us about any of your boiler blowdown needs. We have many products, like our blowdown tanks that are ready to serve your application for years to come. For example blowdown separators would be another great product to look at if you need a more economical way to handle blowdown as well as a desire to save floor space!

Operation of Continuous, Surface Boiler Blowdown Heat Recovery


With the concepts already laid out, explaining how a Madden boiler blowdown heat recovery system works is pretty easy.

When the hot continuous surface blowdown enters its flash tank, the flash steam that is produced when entering the low pressure vessel, is designed to be piped back to a D/A tank, instead of going to atmosphere. There are many valuable B.T.U’s in the flash steam that can be reused in the D/A tank so that less fuel/heat are needed to keep the water boiling in the boiler.

After the flash steam has been released and vented to the D/A tank, the remaining hot boiler blowdown leaves the bottom of the vessel when a float valve is activated and passes through/over either a coiled heat exchanger or U-tube type heat exchanger.

Here, the water the boiler operator uses as make up water, should first be piped through the heat exchanger of the Madden heat recovery system. It serves a dual purpose. First, this make up water (normally around 60 degrees) will be cooling the dirty boiler blowdown to under 140 degrees so that it can safely and legally drain to the city sewer. Second, on the flip side, it is picking up B.T.U’s from the hot boiler blowdown. It picks up heat.

So now instead of sending 60 degree make up water to the boiler, the boiler operator can constantly be sending make up water that has picked up 10+ degrees from the hot blowdown water. Much less fuel is then needed to continue boiling, and this starts to add up when you consider it is happening 24/7/365 days out of the year!

Conclusion
If your boiler room has a boiler or boilers utilizing continuous surface blowdown, and you do not already have some form of heat recovery, give us a call! We would love to start working on this project with you to save B.T.U’s and therefore thousands of dollars.
