When a Canadian biomedical waste management company secured a new, large contract near its Brampton, Ont., facility, the company might have needed to transfer that waste to another of its facilities at great financial expense. A recent boiler upgrade at the Brampton facility, however, allowed Daniels Health Canada to free up five hours a day of production time. This gives the Daniels’ Brampton facility the capacity needed to handle increased volumes without having to transfer waste.
Steam boilers are engineered to provide maximum flexibility for companies that want to ramp up production and for those that need to remain operational while reducing overall costs during the COVID-19 pandemic.
When you are shopping for an industrial boiler, one of the most important factors you must consider is the lifecycle cost. After all, the off-the-shelf efficiency of your boiler system can help you predict the cost of your ownership over a 25- or 30-year lifecycle. Efficiency, however, is not the only factor that determines how long your steam boiler will last.
Valmet will supply a waste-fired steam boiler to Lidköping Energi AB in Sweden. The boiler will allow the company to convert 130,000 tons of waste per year into district heat, industrial hot water, industrial steam and electricity.
The LX Gas/Low NOX Series is offered with boiler models ranging from 50 to 300 hp. The industrial boilers use natural gas or propane and are available in a range of steam pressure options (300, 170 or 15 MAWP).
With more than 140,000 steam boilers in operation worldwide, Miura has never had a pressure vessel explosion resulting in casualty. The company’s focus on safety did not stop with product design performance, however. Shortly after opening its U.S. manufacturing facility in Rockmart, Ga., in 2009, Miura set out to achieve the distinction of becoming the safest workplace in the steam boiler industry.
Unplanned downtime due to equipment failures and unanticipated steam demands are among the reasons industrial boiler owners find themselves seeking new or rental equipment with a short turnaround time.
