This year, the All Ways Steam Team was excited to attend Chicago’s AHR Expo—one of the oldest and largest heating and ventilation shows in the world. AHR Expo offers a unique opportunity for the entire industry to get together. It plays host to vendors and exhibitors from every state in the nation, plus representatives from 165 countries around the world.
Next week, we will be headed to Power-Gen in Las Vegas, so we thought this would be the perfect opportunity to talk about a deaerator system and condensate system.
Today on the Boiling Point, Ritchie talks with Steven about the differences between a deaerator system and a condensate system. Both of these systems are able to preheat your feed water system and remove the oxygen from the water; however, they operate a bit differently. As we have mentioned before, water can be very corrosive to the metal in a steam system, so removing as much oxygen as possible is a priority.
