A tank-type pressure vessel installed in a steam pipe to collect condensate to be trapped off and thus providing comparatively dry steam to connect machinery.



Related Terms

EVAPORATOR

A pressure vessel used to evaporate raw water by means of a steam coil. The steam is condensed by means of cooling water coils, and this distilled water is used as make-up for boiler feed.

STEAM BOILER

A closed pressure vessel in which water is converted to steam by the application of heat.

BACK SIPHONAGE

The flowing back of used, contaminated, or polluted water from a plumbing fixture or vessel into the pipe which feeds it; caused by reduced pressure in the pipe.

SIPHON

A pigtail-shaped pipe or a drop leg in the pipe leading to a steam pressure gauge, serving to trap water in the gauge and prevent overheating from direct contact with steam.

BOILER

A closed vessel in which water is heated, steam is generated, steam is superheated, or any combination thereof, under pressure or vacuum by the application of heat from combustible fuels, electricity, or nuclear energy. The term dose not include such facilities of an integral part of a continuous processing unit but does include fired units of heating or vaporizing liquids other than water where these units are separate from processing systems and are complete within themselves.

CANADIAN REGISTRATION NUMBER (CRN)

A registration number that is allotted to pressure vessel designs by the regulatory agency of the province where the design is registered.

AUTOCLAVE

An airtight vessel for heating and sometimes agitating its contents under high steam pressure; used for industrial processing, sterilizing, and cooking with moist or dry heat at high temperatures.

DRY STEAM

Steam containing no moisture. Commercially dry steam containing not more than 0.5 percent moisture.

UNFIRED PRESSURE VESSEL

A vessel designed to withstand internal pressure, neither subjected to heat from products of combustion nor an integral part of a fired pressure vessel system.

BOILER AND PRESSURE VESSEL CODE

An ASME code, The Boiler and Pressure Vessel Code establishes rules of safety governing the design, fabrication, and inspection of boilers and pressure vessels, and nuclear power plant components during construction.
