1,000-hp Mobile Boiler Room Debuts

Nationwide Boiler and Superior Boiler Works complete production of 1,000 hp mobile boiler room.

Nationwide Boiler Inc. and Superior Boiler Works complete production of a 1,000-hp mobile boiler room. The ASME Section I firetube boiler, ASME spray deaerator and ASME blowdown separator reportedly required more than a year of custom engineering, planning and production time.

The system is designed at 290 psig with operating pressure capabilities ranging from 100 to 260 psig, according to the companies. It can fire 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.

The high-efficiency boiler offers an added advantage to Texas customers: with a heat input of less than 40 million BTUs, no air permit is required for operation during typical rental use, according to the companies. The system will be stored in Hutchinson, Kansas.
