Nationwide Boiler Inc. has designed and developed a 110,000 lb/hr trailer-mounted, high-pressure, superheat mobile boiler. Currently being manufactured by Babcock & Wilcox, the package watertube boiler is designed at 750 psig, 750F superheat. It is capable of producing 110,000 lb/hr of superheated steam at a pressure of 400-650 psig (when supplied with feedwater at a temperature of 227F) and is designed to burn natural gas with a future option of firing #2 oil. The boiler and trailer are highway legal, allowing for immediate shipment in North America, pending permit approval.

The trailer-mounted boiler includes a low NOx burner, EconoStak economizer, and a fully metered cross limited control system with a VFD driven, 300 hp fan. For users requiring ultra low NOx emissions of 5 ppm, Nationwide Boiler’s CataStak SCR System can be supplied. The completed unit should be in service at the end of March. It will initially be stored at Babcock & Wilcox’s manufacturing facility in West Point, MS and is available for rental or sale worldwide.
