Deaerating Vent

Efficient removal of the non-condensable gases from the deaerating heater requires that the vent valve be opened sufficiently to allow complete discharge of the gases passed to the vent condenser outlet pipe.

The maximum concentration of the non-condensable gases such as oxygen, carbon dioxide passing out the vent depends on the degree of condensation produced by the steam and gas mixture passing through and around the spray created by the special spray valve.
