Tech Note: Vacuum Boiler

May 5, 2016  |  Technical Note: CWT-20160505-002  | Dear Customer, This Technical Note is to notify you that Tecvalco has undergone a significant change in the control design for the CWT Heater.

Our prior control design, which was an ASME Section IV boiler, required floats in order to meet code. In some instances, this was problematic as the floats would occasionally cause nuisance trips. The new design, which now designates our CWT Heaters as ASME Section IV, Appendix V, does not require floats. Read More
