World’s First 1,000 HP Low-NOX Mobile Boiler Room
FREMONT, CALIF., and HUTCHINSON, KAN. (July 14, 2016) – Nationwide Boiler Inc. and Superior Boiler have completed production of the world’s first 1,000 hp mobile boiler room. The one-of- a-kind piece of equipment is ready for service, the companies announced today. The ASME Section I firetube boiler, ASME spray deaerator and ASME blowdown separator, manufactured by Hutchinson, Kan.-based Superior Boiler, required more than a year of custom engineering, planning and production time.
“Nationwide Boiler is known in the industry for providing customers with new and innovative solutions and, with this product, we have pushed the envelope on both size and operating capabilities for a mobile rental unit,” said Larry Day, president & CEO of Nationwide Boiler Inc. “It has been a pleasure working with Superior Boiler to design and assemble a system that will offer customers a new solution for high-capacity, temporary steam requirements. A special thanks to Joe Doyle, Nationwide Boiler’s project manager, for heading up the equipment design and engineering, in addition to ensuring the system meets our high quality standards.” “We are thrilled to partner with Nationwide Boiler on such a technologically advanced project for our industry and to jointly deliver this mobile steam plant to future customers,” said Doug Wright, Superior Boiler’s CEO. “The collaboration entailed significant upfront engineering work between the two companies to ensure maximum use of allowable space and operating efficiencies. This was, without question, an example of teamwork between both companies, and working with an industry leader like Nationwide Boiler has been incredible. Ultimately, customers win, as this fills a niche with a reliable and quality product that didn’t exist before today.” The system is designed at 290 psig with operating pressure capabilities ranging from 100 to 260 psig, far exceeding any other operating pressure available in the marketplace today. It is capable of firing natural gas, propane gas or #2 oil.
A custom 53-foot, four-axle container houses the 1,000 hp boiler and low NOx, high efficiency Power Flame burner package, in addition to an ASME spray deaerator and triplex feedwater pumps, ASME blowdown separator, chemical feed system and oil pump. Nationwide Boiler’s standard motor control center panel with a Honeywell RM7800 burner management system with annunciator and a Siemens 353 PID loop controller for parallel positioning combustion control are also included in the arrangement. This high-efficiency boiler offers an added advantage to customers specifically located in Texas: with a heat input of less than 40 million BTUs, no air permit will be required for operation during typical rental use. The system will be stored in Hutchinson, Kansas, a strategic, centralized location for fast delivery throughout the United States.
