Wessels flash tanks are manufactured to ASME Section VIII, Div. 1 standards. Designed to 125 PSI.
The function of a flash tank is to allow high-pressure condensate to flash and a reduced pressure steam.
This reduced pressure steam is then used to supply heat to a “low” pressure supply main.
It can also be used to reduce and cool to low-pressure steam before re-introducing it to the boiler or condensate receiver, or discharge directly from the system.
The vessels are available in standard volumes from 13 to 180 gallons.
Sparge and drop-leg designs are also available to meet any design condition.
