Difference between Deaerator and a Condensate Tank - Boiling point

Learn what the differences are between a deaerator and a condensate tank.

We are preparing for trade show season at WARE. 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. Water can be very corrosive to the metal in a steam system, so removing as much oxygen as possible is a priority. Even though each system is similar, they both go about it a little differently. Watch the video for the full explanation of each system.
