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 benefit of a modular, once-through watertube design is the ability to rapidly generate full steam even from a cold start (on-demand steam). On-demand steam can improve steam generation operations by matching the actual load demand with boiler output in near real time. While traditional boilers typically are placed in a standby or idle mode when not in use, such operating techniques are not required with on-demand watertube boilers.
Ed Verderose joined Miura Boilers, Rockmart, Ga., as national accounts manager, a position that is focused on working with businesses and facilities that have multiple locations in the U.S. market. Miura is one of the largest industrial steam boiler manufacturers in the world and manufactures on-demand steam solutions.
Superior Holding Inc. will complete the full integration of its Richmond, Va.-based English Boiler subsidiary into Hutchinson, Kan.-based Superior Boiler. The Richmond and Hutchinson arms of the company both will now operate under the Superior Boiler name.
Fives opened a combustion research center in Europe to speed up the development of new technologies for the energy and oil-and-gas industries. The Fives European Combustion Centre in the province of Piacenza (northern Italy) will reduce the time to market of combustion systems that have improved energy performance, are more environmentally friendly and guarantee a high level of security, says the company.
Scale and soot buildup on the boiler surfaces causes the equipment to run harder to maintain the same output, and both fuel and efficiency losses quickly ramp up. Effective boiler cleaning can restore boiler surfaces and efficiency.
Can boiler maintenance impact your bottom line? You bet it can. When a boiler is operating at optimum efficiency, it can help save thousands of dollars on a facility’s energy costs. Sounds great, but how can you make sure that happens?
CBEX Dryback Elite achieves 3 percent O2 across its 10:1 turndown range. The standard package offers 30 ppm NOX with less 10 ppm CO. The boiler is generally 20 percent smaller than other firetube models and heats up faster, according to the manufacturer.
