QuickDraw Steam & Boiler Water FAQs

Can I lift condensate with steam pressure?

The ability to lift condensate with steam pressure cannot be assured on QuickDraw products due to the possible use of a modulating steam valve or a multiple solenoid steam control system. The recommended methods of condensate distribution are:
a. Plumb to a condensate receiver and pump or vacuum return to the condensate return header.
b. Plumb to a pneumatic/electric actuated condensate pump trap for return to the condensate return header.
c. Drain to atmosphere (would require constant make-up of boiler water).
