UV Series Boiler Feed
UV Series units are uniquely designed for below-grade applications. Each pump consists of a vertical pump and motor unit and has either a flange-type float switch mechanism to control pumping from the water level in the receiver or a flange-type float-operated makeup valve to control pumping from the water level in the boiler. UV Series Boiler Feed units collect condensate below floor level and then pump condensate and makeup water directly into the boiler(s) using various pressures and flows. Pumping action is determined by a boiler-mounted level controller that senses boiler water level requirements. Skidmore offers standard float-operated makeup valves or special electric solenoid valves on receivers designed to replenish water inside the boiler feed unit when water levels get too low.
