Fulton Blow-Off Tanks

Fulton’s blow-off tanks are used as alternative ways to cooling the blowdown water prior to it being properly disposed. These large tanks store the water volume from a single blow after the flash steam has been ventilated into the atmosphere.

Once in the tank, the water will cool down through the process of natural convection. After the water reaches a certain temperature (140 degrees F), it’s forced out of the bottom of the drain by being displaced by the next blowdown.

Ensure Your Facility Remains in Compliance with Fulton Blow-off Tanks

Blow-off tanks are a critical piece of equipment that provides a safe means of controlling boiler blow-off water. This includes the reduction in temperature and pressure to acceptable limits for safe discharge into a drain system, sewer, or other area. It’s important to understand that discharge of high temperature water from a boiler can create unnecessary hazards to people, the environment, and damage drains or sewers.

The EPA mandates discharge water be no hotter than 140°F before it can be safely discharged into a sewer system. However, local ordinances may require temperatures that are lower. The experts at ATI of New York can work with you to provide a Fulton blow-off tank to ensure you’re in compliance with national and local ordinances.

Protecting Your Boiler Investment with Fulton Blow-Off Tank

Over time, boiler water can cause deposits and scaling to form. Once this happens, it can result in the reduction of the efficiency of your boiler, which can lead to increased cost. Because of this phenomenon, boilers will intermittently need to have a certain percentage of the water flushed.  Blow-off tanks are designed to meet this need and to safely dispose of dirty, hot boiler blowdown water.
