The PivotrolÂ® pressure-powered condensate pump is engineered for dependable steam system condensate recovery in rapid-cycling process environments and under all pressure and temperature conditions. The pump is designed as a solution to excessive maintenance and energy consumption, heat exchanger stall, water hammer, and erratic steam system performance. Featuring PowerPivotÂ® technology, the unit replaces pins and linkages with pivots, which reduce friction and wear, lengthening service life, the manufacturer says. A damper uses the inertia of the collected condensate to reduce mechanical shock as the valve actuators shift. The Pivotrol integral mechanism is retrofittable to the company's PPC pumps.
