BOILER FEEDPUMP RECIRCULATION

for this valve is as follows: When the boiler feedpump is firststarted, the recirculation valve will be opened and the feedwater valve will be slowly opened as the planned comes on line. Once the feedwater valve reaches 10% to 25% of pump capacity, the recirculation valve will go closed. This recirculation valve will remain closed until the pump flow falls below the 10% to 25% level, at which time the recirculation …

Aug 11, 2015 · Some pumps may require a minimum flow of 30% (or more) of the rate pump flow. This requirement can be met in a number of ways but in general consists of having a recycle line back to the deaerator with orifices and valves to control the amount of flow. The simplest system consists of a recycle line with orifice(s); this is used in small BFW pumps. The orifices are sized for the minimum …

Boiler Feed Unit: Pump Minimum Flow | R.L. Deppmann

Feb 08, 2021 · In systems where the pump operates continuously and a boiler feed control valve modulates to feed the boiler, minimum flow can be an issue. Maintaining minimum pump flow becomes even more important in higher pressure applications. The minimum flow is normally handled by a combination of three-way valves and bypass valves in a hydronic system.

Boiler Feed Pump - an overview | ScienceDirect Topics

10.5.5 Pump minimum flow recirculation control (Figure 10.35) To ensure the safety of large pumps, e.g., boiler feed pump (BFP), condensate extraction pump (CEP), etc., it is essential to maintain a minimum flow through the pump at all modes of operation. This control valve is located on a separate line tapped from either the individual pump discharge or the common discharge header of pumps.

Mar 31, 2006 · Basically the pump operates at a frequency that is sufficient to force the pumps minimum flow rate through the orifice back to the feed tank when the modulating valve is closed. The VFD is controlled by a pressure sensor on the feed water line so as to maintain a constant pressure up stream of the the valve at all times and governed by a minimum frequency set point.
