Understanding New Boiler Options

Emerging technologies are now taking boilers to whole new levels in terms of performance, efficiency, and safety. Upgrading existing boilers with new burners or controls can deliver advantages, but the benefits only go so far. In order to assure reliable operation and optimal performance, you should explore new boiler innovations that will deliver increased efficiency, expanded capabilities, and fewer headaches for you.

Boiler Overview

Steam boilers provide an energy-efficient solution for high and low-pressure processes. Low-pressure steam boilers are designed for low-temperature applications such as comfort heating and humidification. Operations involving process loads, larger facility heating requirements, pasteurization or sanitization needs are best served by high-pressure steam boilers. Examples of steam boilers include firetube boilers and watertube boilers.

Hot water boilers are most often used in heating applications when the boiler supplies water to the system at 100°F to 240°F. Operating pressure for the hot water heating systems tends to be 30 psig to 160 psig, which is permissible for the use of a hot water boiler. For applications requiring hot water temperature of more than 240°F, high-temperature water boilers are better suited. Innovative boiler technology allows for the management of variable loads.
