Hotwell Boiler Feed Water Tanks

Standard, modular, and custom Hotwell Tanks

Hotwell Boiler Feed Water Tanks

As a core component in the boiler house, feed water tanks, commonly referred to as Hotwell tanks, must be robust and well-engineered to support the overall energy efficiency of the boiler.

We offer both a standard size range of feed water tanks and custom designed tanks with materials, dimensions and connection arrangements based on customer requirements.

Standard Range Hotwell Tanks

Tanks in our standard size range are typically manufactured in carbon steel, fully insulated with 50mm thick mineral wool and overclad in aluminum sheet. All our tanks are internally braced.

We offer four models with capacity and dimensions detailed in the table below. Tanks can also be manufactured to these standard dimensions in 304 stainless steel.

Modular and Multi Tank Designs

Where access and space is restricted in boiler houses, customers often opt for a modular approach to feed water tank design which can greatly facilitate installation. To accommodate such requests we have developed a modular framework that can be scaled to suit any tank capacity.
