The Sanicondens is a small pump that may be used to pump condensate from condensing boilers, HVAC systems, water heater systems, etc. The Sanicondens will pump condensate up to 15 feet in height and/or 150 feet away from a soil stack.
Condensate has the potential to cause property damage or even create health hazards that can affect indoor air quality. Many times, the condensate is not able to drain through gravity to an existing drain line. This is the reason a condensate pump is essential to many residential and commercial applications.
The inside of the Sanicondens comprises of a float mechanism, which starts and stops the unit, and the motor, which drives the pump.
When the water enters the Sanicondens, it activates the float mechanism, which in turn starts the motor. A spindle/shaft drives the impeller and therefore the moving parts are kept to an absolute minimum. Water enters the chamber and is pumped away into the sanitary sewer.
The unit pumps the effluent upward to 15 feet and/or 150 feet horizontally (with gravity fall). Once the water is discharged and the water level in the container goes down, the float deactivates the unit until water enters the unit again. A normal operating cycle for the Sanicondens can be as short as 2 - 10 seconds depending upon the discharge pipe run configuration; power consumption is therefore minimal.
The discharge connection of the unit comes equipped with a non-return valve, which prevents back flow into the unit.
It is also highly recommended for the condensate pump to be connected to a Ground Fault Interrupter (GFI) circuit.
The small, powerful pumping unit can be floor or wall mounted. It comes ready to install with connections to an external overflow, shut-off switch or alarm system. It also includes all necessary hardware for ease of installation; 20 Ft of vinyl tubing, inlet adapter, discharge adapter.
