(g) Ensure that condensate return valves and boiler feed valves are
open.  The pump does not operate until receiver water level is high enough to

starter.
(b) Observe whether the float switch starts and stops the pump when the
w a t e r reaches the desired levels in the receiver.
4.3 Normal Operation.
( a ) Output Control.  Pump delivery is governed by the float switch
c o n t r o l .  Operation depends on water level in the receiver.
( b ) S t r a i n e r s .  I n new installations, clean strainers daily until no
accumulation of foreign matter is observed.  Establish a maintenance
inspection program to ensure strainers are cleaned at intervals as recommended
by the manufacturer.
( c ) Stuffing Boxes.
Check packing gland adjustment.
Follow the procedures described in `lubrication of HTW
( d ) Lubrication.
pumps.
( e ) Irregular Performance.  C h e c k any indication of irregular operation,
such as abnormal temperature, pressure, vibration, and noise.  O p e r a t i o n of
new equipment should be closely watched.
4.4 System Shutdown.
Proceed as follows when taking a return unit out of
service.
(a) Open pump control switch when no return condensate is available or
r e q u i r e d for boiler feeding.  I f the unit is to be out of service for
overhaul, open the motor disconnect switch.
( b ) Close condensate return valves (inlet to the receiver) and boiler
feed valves.  This should be done only after the boiler is cool and does not
r e q u i r e additional water.
( c ) If the unit is to be out of service for an appreciable period during
f r e e z i n g weather, drain the pump and receiver to prevent damage.
5 MAINTENANCE OF PUMPS.  HTW pumps and condensate return pumps are generally
o f the centrifugal type and their maintenance procedures are similar.
5.1 Inspection and Maintenance.  Never run a pump dry; waterflow is required
f o r lubrication and cooling of internal surfaces. Never throttle the pump
Never operate a
