When not neutralized, acidic condensate has the potential to harm the environment and any plumbing it comes in contact with due to its acidic nature. Liberty Pumps’ LCU-N neutralizing condensate pumps prevent expensive repairs due to corroding drains and sewer systems by neutralizing and removing acidic condensate produced by high-efficiency combustion equipment.
Available in two models—LCU-N20ST (115V) and LCU-N220ST (230V)—the pumps are rated for acidic condensate from up to 500,000 BTUs of appliance input from condensing boilers/furnaces as well as non-acidic condensate from A/C equipment, ice machines, dehumidifiers, and other applications requiring condensate removal. Separate inlets are provided for non-acidic inputs that will help extend the life of the neutralizing media when not required.
The LCU-N series offers the following benefits:
- The pumps prevent expensive repairs due to corroding drains and sewer systems.
- Neutralized condensate is environmentally safer compared to acidic condensate.
- Neutralizer media is contained within a cartridge to make replacing used media hassle-free.
- Smaller magnesium oxide pellets offer faster neutralization of high PH water over larger size media.
