Condensate Pump too many elbow at discharge Pipe

Condensate Pump too many elbow at discharge Pipe

Dear all,

I would like to enquire is that for Condensate Pump which float type one when there is too many elbow its cannot pump the condensate to the destination, since condensate pump cycle is low and will create water hammer ? So when there are too many elbows is for condensate pumping is that better use normal centrifugal pump instead of condensate pump? Example of condensate pump given below. Please advice


RE: Condensate Pump too many elbow at discharge Pipe

Not aware of any limitation of the elbows used in the discharge line of the condensate pump system.
The selection of either condensate pump or centrifugal pump could be based on the flow rate, hydraulic requirement, etc.
