Boiler Blowdown Tanks

Boiler Blowdown Tank, boiler tank, highland tank The Boiler Blowdown Tank is a steel storage unit designed to remove dissolved solids and sludge that build up in discharged boiler water. As an ASME pressure vessel, these tanks enable high pressure water to safely flash to steam. This protects the boiler surfaces from corrosion and severe scaling to maintain boiler functionality.

As part of boiler system, blowdown tanks work to minimized build up and scaling in the boiler tank. Tanks are designed according to your system and tank needs. In general, the blowdown tank should be at least two times the volume of the boiler water. This allows the system enough space to properly process all of the water. Standard tanks include an inlet, vent, drain outlet and drain clean out.
