Kontinuerlig blåsventil 560

The continuous desalting valve is used to empty an adjustable quantity of water from the steam boiler, removing:

.Organic matter and mineral salts in solution. (Calcium, magnesium, sodium, potassium, iron, bicarbonate ions, chlorides, sulphates, nitrates, …etc.).
.Solid materials in suspension. (Sand, clay, metal residues, rock residues, organic matter, …etc.).
The continuous bleeding process prevents:

.Damage caused by erosion and perforation, entailing the following high costs:
.Direct: Replacement or repair of materials.
.Indirect: Stoppages, product losses, …etc.
.Danger of boiler explosion.

And reduces:
.Incrustations and sediments caused by precipitation of calcium and magnesium salts, which obstruct thermic transmission and which cause unnecessary and excessive fuel consumption.
.Foam formation caused by excessive saline concentration, with its corresponding drag.
