Welcome back! In our last blog, we described steam boilers and how they work. An article on the website for Thermax, an engineering company that adopts sustainable development practices, says the energy produced by industrial boilers gives “industries a cost-effective way of powering their production.” Keep reading about deaerators, a key component to maintaining commercial and industrial boiler systems.

What is a Deaerator/Deaerator Tank? What is its purpose?

According to Deaerator.com, the website for a company in Kansas City that manufactures deaerators, “Corrosion is a major factor in the failure of boilers, which is where the deaeration process comes in.” Deaerator tanks extend the life of a commercial or industrial steam boiler by taking the oxygen out of the water put into the system. The article from Deaerator.com also states, “the major area of application for deaerators can be found within a boiler plant and boiler feed water systems.”

How does a Deaerator Tank Work?

All types of deaerators operate the same. Water is added to the deaerator tank and mixed with the steam, which raises the water temperature. The increase in temperature breaks up oxygen and other gases. These gases escape through a vent at the top of the deaerator tank.

Describe the Types of Deaerators and their Uses.

The two most common types of deaerator tanks are:

How do you Select a Deaerator System?

When selecting a deaerator system, make sure the system:

The blog post from Rasmussen Mechanical Services explains a Steady State condition by writing:

When do you Use a Deaerator Tank?

Steam boilers do not work well without deaerator tanks. If you’re experiencing trouble with your deaerator, your business cannot use the steam boiler. Please call Engineering Energy Equipment to prevent this from happening to your company.
