A 1,000-hp mobile boiler room built by Nationwide Boiler Inc. and Superior Boiler Works is ready for service. The companies claim it is the first of its kind.
The ASME Section I firetube boiler, ASME spray deaerator and ASME blowdown separator, which were manufactured by Superior Boiler Works, Hutchinson, Kan., required more than a year of custom engineering, planning and production time. Designed at 290 psig with operating pressure capabilities ranging from 100 to 260 psig, it is capable of firing natural gas, propane gas or No. 2 oil.
