Blowdown Vessels

Blowdown vessels have been manufactured at Snowdens for many years for the heating and steam industries and in variable guises. They can be either built to your own specification or part of our standard range.

Whether you need a direct replacement so that there is no need to change pipework or a completely bespoke vessel, we have the experience and expertise to deliver results.

Vent heads

These can also be supplied and are designed to ensure the safe venting of any excess flash steam from the feed tank and the separation of entrained condensate. Used on blowdown vessels, hotwell tanks and condensate pump sets, they remove water from discharged steam. Steam hits the internal baffle plate and discharges to the atmosphere. Any residue water drains out of the head. Ask us for details.
