Condensate Pump - Little Giant®
These fully automatic condensate pumps incorporate a thermal overload
protection and high-level alarm for your total peace of mind.
Suitable for condensate up to 2.8pH and boilers up to 200kw and is supplied with 6m of 3/8" ID flexible drain hose and an adapter for 22mm waste pipes.
The pump is controlled by a float/switch mechanism which turns the pump on to
discharge the condensate when a set level of condensate accumulates in the tank.
The drink cycle can take between 10-40 seconds. The pump stops automatically
when the tank drains to a stop level.
This pump also incorporates a check valve to prevent condensate flowing back
into the pump.
- Max Flow (lph): 294
- Max Head (m): 4.3
- Tank Capacity (litres): 1.9
- Volts: 240 Hz: 50
- Discharge Size: 3/8"
Did you know?...
Condensate is formed within the boiler and flue due to the low back end temperature and for every 1 kw of boiler output a volume of up to 0.1 litres of condensate is produced per hour. This will typically result in volumes of around 800 - 1,000 litres ever year!
Where a boiler has to be installed on internal walls or within basements a boiler condensate tank pump from Components Direct is what you need.
Where immediate access to a drain is not available, this pump can also offer advantages and it also offers flexibility if access to the drain is not straight-forward. The routing of the 10mm small bore hose can prove very flexible in connecting to the existing internal sink, washing machine, shower, bath, drain or vent stack.
Typical acidity levels of condensate in the UK are between pH 3 and 4. This acidic nature of condensate does have an impact on most mortar and will react chemically to break down the bond within the mortar. Condensate must never be allowed to drain untreated down the sides of buildings either above or below ground level.
When routing hose through any area which could be exposed to freezing temperatures, such as lofts, basements or garages, we strongly recommend the use of pre-insulated condensate hose - contact us for details.
