The seal pot we are using as one of pressure controls is continuously supplied with water at normal flowrate. We check the seal pot level thru its manometer and found normal; but in the end we conclude that the seal pot had emptied since vapor/gas already came out and no water came out from the seal pot water outlet. What are the possible causes of this? Could you please also tell me how a tank seal pot works? its principle and operation?
Have an insight or suggestion?

Re: Problems with Seal Pots5 August 2008 at 1:29pmI dont have much experience with seal pots. What little I know from phosphorous furnace electrode liquid seals suggests the purpose is to seal in vapors with a liquid barrier but when the pressure exceeds the head of liquid, the liquid blows out. There is also a vapor loss of liquid depending upon the temperature of the gases.
