Any time a business can trim overhead costs, it directly benefits the bottom line. In some cases, you may even be able to pass along any savings to your customers making this a win-win proposition. It’s why we encourage you to explore all the options that can help reduce overhead and then implement the ones that make sense for your business. One practical way to save money is to invest in a condensate receiver. In this post, we’ll discuss what condensate receivers are, how they work, and how they can help you reduce fixed costs in your business.
How Condensate Receivers Work
Specifically, condensate receivers are components that integrate with the boiler system. They work by capturing the condensate that the boiler emits and essentially recycles it so that it can be reused. As boilers heat, they “sweat.” This perspiration is simply moisture that will evaporate. With a condensate receiver, this moisture can be captured and put to good working use.
At Rema Dri-Vac, we offer condensate receivers in simplex and duplex models to meet the requirements of any boiler on your property. What’s great about these components is that they’re easy to install and maintain. Though they represent a bit of an upfront investment, it’s one with high return overtime when it comes to increased efficiency and use of resources.
Save Money and Streamline Efficiency
These types of receivers are designed to integrate with the boiler system and allow emitted condensate to be captured and reused. This feedback loop can potentially repeat itself over and over again, which can increase the efficiency of your boiler system and cut down on your water costs. Just how much return on investment can be realized from installing a condensate receiver? It depends on your return system. There are two main types of return systems: open and closed. While you can save on an open return system, the potential savings are much more significant on a closed return system.
Aside from saving money by making the boiler system work harder for you, there are a few other key ways a condensate receiver can help your company save:
- Reduced maintenance. Condensate is pure, distilled water. There aren’t any solids that will gather as sludge in the boiler, which will result in fewer maintenance costs over time. Just like water and energy usage, maintenance is another key overhead cost in which any reduction benefits the bottom line. What’s more is that boiler blowdowns are another energy-intensive activity, so in addition to reducing maintenance, you’ll also be reducing energy usage.
- Fewer chemicals. As we said, condensate is essentially pure water. With this in mind, there’s less of a need for chemicals to treat freshwater in the boiler.
- Extended equipment life. Condensate receivers help limit wear and tear on the boiler system over time, which in turn makes them last longer. Simply put, they help prevent damage, minimize product quality issues, and also reduce corrosion.
Save Money with Condensate Receivers from Rema Dri-Vac
While many people think that condensate receivers only help conserve water by implementing a continuous feedback loop with the boiler, there are many other ways they can help your company save money. When it comes to overhead, maintenance, and other costs, any opportunity you have to save directly translates to more money in your pocket.
