More than 30 students from the Discovery ChalleNGe Academy toured Nationwide Boiler’s 26,000 ft2 shop in Fremont, Calif., where employees demonstrated skills such as welding, pipe fitting, electrical work, fabrication and equipment assembling. The students also learned about other professional career opportunities including engineering, sales and marketing.
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.

Used for generating steam for power, processing or space heating, or for producing hot water to heat products or a hot water supply, a boiler delivers steam or hot fluid to the end use point at the desired pressure and temperature.
A multinational company selected Superior Boilers Works to provide equipment for a new biopharmaceutical facility in the northeast United States. Superior, Hutchinson, Kan., will deliver two 800-hp Wichita model boilers and an 82,500-pph deaerator.
An affectionate, time-worn habit among my friends and family is to tease me about how temperature sensitive I am. Perhaps it is the effect of covering thermal processing for more than 20 years (though I doubt it), but I can sense even a degree or two difference in the ambient temperature.
Elenia Lämpö Oy’s Vanaja power plant in Hämeenlinna, Finland, will use a biomass-fired boiler to raise the share of renewable fuels used in the city’s district heat production to over 80 percent and increase the energy efficiency of its heat production.
“Identifying and Properly Responding to Boiler Operating Trends,” a webinar hosted by Cleaver-Brooks, will be held Wednesday, Aug. 29 at 2 p.m. (ET). Suited for boiler operators, facility managers and engineers, the webinar will detail the criteria that should be monitored and recorded on an ongoing basis for trend comparison and analysis.
A multifuel power boiler will enable a power plant in Japan to achieve a stable power supply at high thermal efficiency while reducing CO2 emissions. Valmet will supply the boiler to Air Water & Energia Power Onahama’s facility in Iwaki City, Fukushima Prefecture.
