For proper functioning of any deaerator choosing the right Design based on dissolved oxygen and feedwater temperature at the outlet is very important.
Deaerator is used to remove dissolved gases from Boiler feed water to enable production of high quality of steam for power generation and process requirement. We have designed, manufactured and supplied as per ASME, HEI, and IS code of practice, more than 245 Deaerators from 6tph to 595tph and feed water temperature at the outlet of Deaerator ranging from 105 degree C to 182 degree C to all Boiler manufactures and also to the Power industries in India and Abroad.
Special Features of our Dearators
The Deaerator is vertical spray cum tray with counter flow of steam and water & with horizontal feed water storage tank.
In order to accomplish high degree of efficient deaeration, water is sprayed through various spray nozzles arranged below the water header.
Trays are arranged in triangular fashion to increase the resident time for fine deareation. This arrangement will cut down the amount of phosphate additive and eliminate the need for sulphate or Hydrazine additives. This will also reduce the amount of blow down and also reduce the cost of chemical treatment.
For initial start – up / heating up of water, Sparger type arrangement is provided in the feed Water storage tank. This arrangement will also prevent hammering effect when the deaerator is actually charged with steam.
At the deaerator storage tank outlet nozzle, a sample point is provided to measure dissolved oxygen content.
The pump suction/ outlet nozzle of the deaerator storage tank is extend up to the perforated inlet header running along the length of the storage tank as shown in the drawing. Due to this arrangement no vortex breaker is required. Hence less pressure drop.
LP Dosing line with nozzles at definite intervals have been provided inside the deaerator storage tank.
In our design no separate vent condenser is required. The first row of trays are designed to act as vent condenser.
The deaerator is designed to take care of all working conditions. The turn-down is 10 %.
The only place for flashing steam to go is upwards to the heater. For this to happen safely, the equalizers the balancing pipes between tank and heaters must be adequately sized.
The vents actually have a dual purpose. Not only do they provide a convenient exit for oxygen lanten steam, they also permit the steam in the spray chamber to approach as close to atmospheric pressure as possible. The reason is that the lower the partial pressure, the more readily the sprayed water gives up the dissolved gases it contains.
A heat exchanger is a piece of equipment built for efficient heat transfer from one medium to another. The media may be separated by a solid wall to prevent mixing or they may be in direct contact. They are widely used in space heating, refrigeration, air conditioning, power plants, chemical plants, petrochemical plants, petroleum refineries, natural gas processing, and sewage treatment. The classic example of a heat exchanger is found in an internal combustion engine in which a circulating fluid known as engine coolant flows through radiator coils and air flows past the coils, which cools the coolant and heats the incoming air.

Tubesheets are plates or forgings drilled to provide holes through which tubes are inserted. Tubes are appropriately secured to the tubesheet so that the fluid on the shell side is prevented from mixing with the fluid on the tube side. Holes are drilled in the tubesheet normally in either of two patterns, triangular or square.
The distance between the centers of the tube hole is called the tube pitch; normally the tube pitch is 1.25 times the outside diameter of the tubes. Other tube pitches are frequently used to reduce the shell side pressure drop and to control the velocity of the shell side fluid as it flows across the tube bundle. Triangular pitch is most often applied because of higher heat transfer and compactness it provides. Square pitch facilitates mechanical cleaning of the outside of the tubes.
Two tubesheets are required except for U-tube bundles. The tubes are inserted through the holes in the tubesheets and are held firmly in place either by welding or by mechanical or hydraulic expansion. A rolled joint is the common term for a tube-to-tube sheet joint resulting from a mechanical expansion of the tube against the tubesheet. This joint is most often achieved using roller expanders; hence the term rolled joint. Less frequently, tubes are expanded by hydraulic processes to affect a mechanical bond. Tubes can also be welded to the front or inboard face of the tubesheet. Strength welding designates that the mechanical strength of the joint is provided primarily by the welding procedure and the tubes are only lightly expanded against the tubesheet to eliminate the crevice that would otherwise exist. Seal welding designate that the mechanical strength of the joint is provided primarily by the tube expansion with the tubes welded to the tubesheet for better leak protection. The cost of seal-welded joints is commonly justified by increased reliability, reduced maintenance costs, and fewer process leaks. Seal-welded joints are required when clad tubesheets are used, when tubes with wall thickness less than 16 BWG (0.065 inch) are used, and for some metals that cannot be adequately expanded to achieve an acceptable mechanical bond (titanium and Alloy 2205 for instance)
Baffles serve three functions: 1) support the tube; 2) maintain the tube spacing; and 3) direct the flow of fluid in the desired pattern through the shell side.
A segment, called the baffle cut, is cut away to permit the fluid to flow parallel to the tube axis as it flows from one baffle space to another. Segmental cuts with the height of the segment approximately 25 percent of the shell diameter are normally the optimum. Baffle cuts larger or smaller than the optimum typically result in poorly distributed shell side flow with large eddies, dead zones behind the baffles and pressure drops higher than expected.
The spacing between segmental baffles is called the baffle pitch. The baffle pitch and the baffle cut determine the cross flow velocity and hence the rate of heat transfer and the pressure drop. The baffle pitch and baffle cut are selected during the heat exchanger design to yield the highest fluid velocity and heat transfer rate while respecting the allowable pressure drop.
The orientation of the baffle cut is important for heat exchanger installed horizontally. When the shell side heat transfer is sensible heating or cooling with no phase change, the baffle cut should be horizontal. This causes the fluid to follow an up-and-down path and prevents stratification with warmer fluid at the top of the shell and cooler fluid at the bottom of the shell. For shell side condensation, the baffle cut for segmental baffles is vertical to allow the condensate to flow towards the outlet without significant liquid holdup by the baffle. For shell side boiling, the baffle cut may be either vertical or horizontal depending on the service.
Other types of baffles are sometimes used such as: double segmental, triple segmental, helical baffle, EM baffle and ROD baffle. Most of these types of baffles are designed to provide fluid flow paths other than cross flow. These baffle types are typically used for unusual design conditions. Longitudinal baffles are sometimes provided to divide the shell creating multiple passes on the shell side. This type of heat exchangers is sometimes useful in heat recovery applications when several shell side passes allow to achieve a severe temperature cross.
|Figure C. Heads contain pass ribs that direct flow on the tube-side fluid for one or more passes across the tube bundle.
In a 'single-segmental’ configuration, baffles move fluid or gas across the full tube count. When high velocity gases are present, this configuration would result in excessive pressure loss thus calling fourth a ‘double-segmental’ layout. In a ‘double-segmental’ arrangement, structural effectiveness is retained, yet allowing gas to flow in a straighter overall direction. While this configuration takes full advantage of the full available tube surface, a reduction in heat transfer performance should be expected.
