A condensate pump is a type of centrifugal pump. It is so named based on the kind of fluid it handles. It is designed to use with appliances that generate water build-ups such as refrigerators, air-conditioners, and other appliances. The water is formed out of the water vapor, which is formed from the steam when warm air meets the cool unit. The function of the pump is to remove water from the system through a pipe.
When the float in the water reaches a specific height, the pump is triggered. When a switch is triggered, the pump is turned on. The pump is turned off when the float goes down and, in the process, signals the pump to turn off. There is a safety switch in some pumps that becomes active when the pump fails to turn on. The safety switch turns off the entire system. The second switch higher than the first activates when the float reaches the second switch. When the system turns off, the condensation tank doesn’t overflow.
Features and benefits of the Burks GV Series Condensate Pumps
Duplex system and Burks 3GV6-14D, GV Series
Burks condensate pumps are superior quality pumps known as Condensate Return Systems. These condensate units are intended for automated hot water condensation return coils, radiators, etc., to high and low-pressure boilers. In other words, these units can return liquids and water to the overhead tanks used in the systems based on industrial gravity circulation. The GV series has the features of bronze impellers that are precision balanced, 200 degrees F of a temperature rating, and receiver tanks of cast iron. Burks GV models head to 130 feet and flow to 80 GPM with 1 1/4 inches discharge. Its RPM is 3450. Its HP ranges between 0.33 to 3, while boiler feed HP is 1/3. All units are dispatched finished, and they are ready for an easy and quick installation.
Burks GV Series Duplex Condensate Return System
These condensate pumps find their use in boiler feed and condensate return systems. The advantage of non-overloading performance testifies the quality of this product. It is not just a number on your performance curve. An overloaded motor is in the danger of tripping when the required work exceeds the motor's capacity. However, the better-quality larger motors of the Duplex system and Burks 3GV6-14D can sustain the GV Series under these conditions because it is non-overloading.
Bronze impellers used in Burks condensate pumps that are precision balanced are in itself the hallmark of a standard that this company brings about in its products. It requires specialized skills to cast and balance the impellers accurately. It reflects the commitment to outstanding quality and consistency that this company stands for.
There are several other features of the Duplex system and Burks 3GV6-14D, GV Series, Duplex, Condensate Return System, Boiler feed other than the ones specified above, such as the top pull-out design system. This design facilitates the ease of service and maintenance. With this design in place, the rotating assembly can be removed without disturbing the piping or the volute.
The advantage of the float switch or alternator is that pump motors can be controlled automatically. There are present high and lower levels at which the motor can start and stop.
Simplex system and Burks 3GV6-9 GV Series
Both simplex and duplex style condensate pumps serve the same purpose. They are designed to automatically return hot water condensation from coils and radiators to boilers at low and high pressure. They also find an application in industrial systems using gravity circulation with overhead tanks where water and other fluids are returned.
Burks GV Series Simplex Condensate Return System
However, where the system is designed for heavy loads of liquid or condensate return, the Duplex Unit is required. It is also used in systems that require a stand-by-pump. Both types of units, Simplex and Duplex, can be converted into a feed unit for a boiler with the use of a make-up valve that is solenoid operated.
Most of the features of the Burks condensate pumps, whether they are Duplex system and Burks 3GV6-14D, GV Series or Simplex system, and Burks 3GV6-9, GV Series are the same. In other words, Simplex system and Burks 3GV6-9, GV Series feature pre-wired and mounted motor controls, alternator or float switch, and both of them have bronze impellers that are precision balanced and the top pull-out. The performance curves are non-overloading, giving them the quality of impeccable performance. They are rated for temperatures up to 200 degrees F. Its high-quality durability, machinability, leak-tightness, and corrosion resistance come from the use of cast iron.
In a nutshell, Burke condensate pumps are excellent in quality and efficiency. They are durable and have a long life. They are designed to make maintenance easy. The material used in their construction is of high quality to ensure trouble-free consistent and continuous working for a long time.
