ASME Flash and Condensate Tanks
Flashing occurs when hot water at a higher pressure is suddenly released to a lower pressure. Our flash tanks are designed to separate the steam from high pressure condensate. Flash tanks provide a common lower pressure point for collecting condensatre, a means to cool hot condensate, and a source of low pressure steam for heating or process use.
Condensate cooler tanks are designed with tangential inlets to enhance the steam and condensate separation efficiency. The vortex action allows the hot condensate to move to the vessel wall area while forcing the steam to the center. The flash steam then exits through the vent at the top and the condensate falls to the bottom.
