The vacuum condensate pump serves two principal functions in a steam heating system.
- To efficiently remove air from the steam lines thus allowing faster heat transfer through the system
- To remove condensate which also enables the system to function quickly
As condensate loads increase or there is a call for vacuum, the SSVCRU will automatically start. If the liquid levels in the accumulator tank rise high enough to trip the float switch, the air pumps will activate and remove the condensate from the accumulator tank, dumping the condensate into the hurling tank. The same process occurs when the vacuum switch is activated.
When condensate levels in the hurling tank increase, the mechanical alternator will active one condensate pump. After each cycle, the pumps will automatically alternate. If the condensate load is too much for one pump to handle, the second condensate pump will be started simultaneously.
