Like most major appliances, boiler systems are complex and consist of many important components that help them work to their full potential. One of the most common (and arguably most taken-for-granted) parts is none other than the Burks Pump.
Simply put, Burks Pumps are essential for the liquid handling that occurs within a boiler system. They are typically heavy-duty, industrial components that are designed to perform well and last for long periods of time.
Below, we’ll take a closer look at Burks Pumps, so you can better understand why they’re so essential to how your boiler operates:
Everything You Need to Know About Burks Pumps
Burks Pumps are designed to serve a variety of industrial, commercial, and residential purposes. These include helping with boiler feed, pumping solvents, and powering hot water operations in boiler systems. Like all pumps, Burks Pumps work to move fluid from various points in a system. However, they can be used in several ways to provide unique paths for fluid to move as it is propelled and energized throughout the boiler setup.
Because Burks Pumps are made from heavy-duty metals like cast iron and bronze, they are durable and can remain functional for many years. They are also relatively affordable and require little to no maintenance throughout their operational lifetimes.
Types of Burks Pumps
There are many different types of Burks Pumps available on the market today. The best option for your boiler system depends on your needs and the Burks Pump’s application.
Here’s a closer look at the types of Burks Pumps Rema Dri-Vac offers:
- Regenerative – Designed for high-pressure, low-flow boiler systems, regenerative pumps work by drawing fluid into the impeller, then dispersing it.
- End Suction – These centrifugal Burks Pumps offer efficient performance and heavy-duty construction. They are highly versatile and ideal for use in a variety of HVAC systems. Plus, they require little maintenance.
- Vertical Inline – If your boiler system doesn’t require high volume flow, a vertical inline system is an ideal selection. Despite their name, these versatile Burks Pumps can be installed vertically, horizontally, and even at an angle. The best part about this type of pump is that it features an inline design, meaning it can be removed easily for maintenance purposes.
- Condensate Return – These Burks Pumps work automatically to return condensation to the boiler or water to the main tank in an overhead system. They are typically easy to install, meaning you might be able to set them up without professional help (even if you’re not particularly handy).
