AKTEK - Model TP16200M - Condensate Accumulator
The AKTEK Biogas TP16200M Condensate Accumulator is designed permit the removal and storage of liquid condensation from biogas while maintaining system pressure integrity. Condensate is a typical byproduct that forms in the pipeline when the hot, saturated biogas cools as it moves through the piping system. The removal of condensate from the biogas is necessary to keep the gas train running by protecting the downstream equipment and piping from corrosion, blockage and water hammer. The AKTEK Biogas TP16200M is especially designed for hydrogen sulfide and hot/wet methane, which are the main components of digester gas streams in municipal wastewater treatment facilities.
The TP16200M installation will typically be immediately downstream of the digester at the lowest elevation to ensure the gravity feed of the condensation into the holding tank. In most applications, the TP16200M Condensate Accumulator is used in conjunction with the AKTEK Biogas TP16300M Sediment Trap to ensure the optimal performance of the system.
The operation of removing condensate from within the TP16200M is managed by a piped connection (drip leg) constructed through the tank wall, which extends down to the drain elevation. As the condensate level rises to the level of the drain, it will be evacuated through the drip leg. To ensure proper management of condensation from the biogas system, an optional liquid level switch and solenoid can be added to control the discharge of the condensation from within the TP16200M.
This level switch(s) provides for automatic solenoid operation of the internal drip leg. Contact Factory for this option.
Two standard capacities, 13 gallons and 125 gallons, are available for the TP16200M Condensate Accumulator. Each unit has been designed for a working pressure of 25 psig and is rigorously tested to confirm the structural integrity of the vessel.
AKTEK Biogas offers a range of materials of construction for the TP16200M Condensation Accumulator. Standard construction consists of carbon steel with a primer coating. Other coatings are available for corrosion protection. In addition, both 316 and 316L Stainless Steel construction are also available. The standard inlet connection is a 4' ANSI B16.5 (150 lb.), flat face flange mounted to the top of the tank. (Other connections are available upon request.) The standard drain and blowout port is a 2' NPT male connection with cap. (Other connections are available upon request.) The TP16200M is equipped with (2) ½' FNPT connections that are plugged, but may be removed for installation of either a 316SS or bronze optional sight glass for visual indication of condensate level.
