3 Strainer to protect the control valve from detritus
4 Hi-limit Control Valve to protect the installation from overtemperature
5 Pressure Gauge to monitor the steam supply pressure
6 Pressure Reducing Valve to reduce pressure to the system
7 Pressure Gauge to monitor the reducing valve set pressure
8 Safety Valve to protect the downstream equipment from overpressure
9 Isolation Valve to monitor the set pressure of the reducing valve
10 Vacuum Breaker to assist condensate removal from the heater at stall conditions
11 Air Vent to vent air from the heat exchanger steam supply
12 Isolation Valve to isolate the air vent & vacuum breaker from the steam supply
13 - 18 inc. Separator Steam Trap Set  
19 Hi-limit Cut Out to close the hi-limit valve shut on overtemperature
20 Hi-limit Sensor to sense the secondary water for overtempertaure
21 Temperature Sensor to sense the secondary water for temperature
22 Isolation Valve to isolate the secondary flow from the heat exchanger
23 Electronic Controller to signal the control valve to move position
24 Pneumatic Actuator to drive the control valve
25 E/P Positioner to position the valve correctly at all loads
26 Balancing Valve to balance the flow in the bypass with the heat exchanger
27 Isolation Valve to isolate the secondary return from the heat exchanger
28 - 34 inc. Heat Exchanger Steam Trap Set  
35 Plate Heat Exchanger to heat the secondary liquid
