An Internet of Things (IoT) solution for boiler rooms that offers real-time data analytics and system intelligence is available as an app on Apple and Android devices. The app, Prometha Connected Boiler Solutions, enables authorized users to remotely view boiler-system performance around the clock. When a condition is suboptimal, users are notified in real-time via an alarm or alert.
Growing trends among companies using industrial thermal processing technologies are prioritizing sustainability and minimizing the environmental impacts of their operations. In response, one industrial boiler equipment manufacturer serving the process industries has developed a sustainability initiative to support manufacturers focused on environmental issues. Cleaver-Brooks will consult with such companies, assess their boiler plant and tailor a solution of sustainable products and services to achieve targets.

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.
Understanding your boiler system should not be difficult. An unfortunate trend in the industry, however, goes against making things simple, cluttering the market with terminology and explanations that are confusing and difficult to understand.
Among the three biggest business challenges facing industrial steam users are a dedication to improving capital, a lack of qualified steam workforce and aging infrastructure, says one boiler manufacturer. Steam as a service is a turnkey approach that will allow processors to focus on their core businesses while having an on-site partnership design, build, operate, maintain and continuously optimize steam generation.
Steam heating technology commonly used to provide process heating will provide comfort heating for a large medical facility in the Southern California desert. The facility purchased 13 boilers from Parker Boiler to handle the steam and heating load of a new expansion.
Superior Boiler’s quality management system has been certified as compliant with ISO 9001 international quality standards. Isoqar Inc., an independent, accredited U.S. certification body, performed the audit and authorized the certification.
Babcock & Wilcox’s B&W Thermal segment will design, manufacture and supply superheater components for a B&W universal pressure supercritical boiler at Luminant’s Oak Grove Power Plant near Franklin, Texas. The facility provides low-emissions power to more than 1 million central Texas homes and businesses.
Babcock & Wilcox Enterprises Inc. received a contract to install economizers for two B&W TSSG natural-gas-fired boilers at an oil sands project in Alberta, Canada. The project, which was awarded to a subsidiary, is valued at more than $4 million.
