Condensate recovery system improves process efficiency

Problem: Kemira Chemicals UK which serves customers in water-intensive industries required a more efficient and reliable condensate recovery system that would improve their steam system efficiency.
Solution: The company installed CORsys from Ari-Armaturen which delivers unrestricted return of the condensate under all load conditions.
“We needed an efficient system to return condensate back to the boiler feed tank on our industrial dryers,” explains David Tuff, senior process engineer at Kemira's Bradford plant.
“Since installing CORsys we have noticed a considerable improvement in process efficiency, less production spoilage plus significant savings on running costs and energy usage. The system is easy to operate and maintain and because it simplifies operating procedures we don't need to retain a service company to maintain the new system - saving us even more time and money.”
“It's great to know that Kemira Chemicals is pleased with the results of our condensate recovery system,” comments Nick Davies, UK sales director of ARI-Armaturen. “We have had excellent feedback from numerous customers about this product because it is competitively priced, easy to operate and offers unrestricted return of condensate with digital indication of the condensate temperature on the integrated pump and level control.”
