Condensate Return Pump

Skidmore steam condensate pumps have been manufactured to rigid quality standards since 1921.
Our steam condensate pumps are engineered and tested to exceed our customers’ requirements.

Condensate Return Pump Details

Assembled and tested pump sets ranging from 6 to 6000 gallon tanks to match a wide range of steam system designs and capacity requirements. Packaged pump systems are completely assembled, wired and tested before shipment from our manufacturing plant to meet or exceed your design requirements.

CONDENSATE PUMP SPECIFICATIONS
Condensate pumps are used in low pressure steam heating systems to collect and quickly return condensate to the boiler or boiler feed unit. Pumping action is controlled by an integral float switch on simplex (one pump) units or mechanical alternator on duplex (two pump) units. Unlike boiler feed units, which are controlled by a boiler mounted control and equipped with a make-up valve mechanism, condensate pumps usually do not directly supply boiler make-up water.

SIMPLEX UNITS
Simplex units are equipped with a vapor tight. heavy duty float switch control with a stainless steel float. They are easily field adjustable to provide proper pump control and operation. Receivers are available in your choice of cast iron or welded steel construction.

Long lasting, close grained cast iron receivers; available in 6, 15, 21, and 45 gallon sizes. Larger receivers available, consult factory. Welded, copper bearing steel receivers; available in 10, 20, and 45 gallon capacities. Larger and custom-size receivers available, consult factory. Simplex units may be ordered mounted on duplex reservoirs to provide an opportunity for conversion to a duplex unit at a later time.

DUPLEX PUMP UNITS
Duplex units offer some additional distinct advantages over simplex units. They are used where an unusually heavy amount of condensate must be returned or where it is desirable to have a stand-by pump available. Equipped with a float operated, automatic mechanical alternator, they provide several benefits.

System overload protection - The second pump is activated if the rate of condensate return exceeds the limits of the first pump.

Extra-long service life- Each of the two pumps is activated automatically on alternating pumping cycles so the work load is evenly distributed between the two pumps.

Back-up system protection - A second pump is automatically activated if the first one fails to start. Maintenance or repairs can be made on either pump without shutting down the other one or interrupting the system operation.

Duplex unit receivers are available in your choice of cast iron or welded steel construction.

Long lasting, close grained cast iron receivers available in 15, 21, and 45 gallon sizes. Larger receivers available, consult factory.

Welded, copper bearing steel receivers available in 20 and 45 gallon sizes. Larger and custom-size receivers available, consult factory.
