Innovation is the process of translating an idea or invention into a good or service that creates value for which customers will pay. To be called an innovation, it must be replicable at an economic cost and must satisfy a specific need.
Nationwide Boiler has contributed many innovations to the rental boiler industry throughout the years. This includes the first 40,000 lb/hr high-pressure trailer-mounted boiler in 1982, the world’s largest 120,000 lb/hr trailer-mounted boiler in 1993, 75,000 lb/hr trailer-mounted high-pressure superheat boilers in 1998, and the first 82,500 lb/hr or 99.9 MKB trailer-mounted boilers in 2004, just to name a few.
Our goal is to provide quality equipment and ease of logistics to our customers when a planned or unplanned outage arises. The specific need that we are targeting with our latest innovation is ease of delivery for our customers who have a high capacity requirement and superheat steam needs.
The world’s largest superheat mobile boiler, a custom built O type Babcock & Wilcox unit designed at 750 psig / 750F, is capable of producing 110,000 lb/hr of superheated steam at a pressure of 400-650 psig (when supplied with feed-water at a temperature of 227F). It is trailer-mounted for immediate shipment worldwide.
The ability to ship by truck instead of by rail is a great time-saving advantage, especially during the current railroad capacity challenges and shipping delays.
The boiler weighs 220,000 lbs and measures over 97 ft long. Equipped with a low NOx burner, it is set to burn natural gas with future #2 oil capabilities.
Features of this packaged boiler include an EconoStak economizer for maximum efficiency, a fully metered cross limited control system with a VFD driven, 300 hp fan, and a burner management system that is SIL2 rated for assured safety mea-sures. Nationwide’s CataStak™ SCR system can also be supplied for 5 ppm NOx requirements.
This boiler is a first of its kind, and is currently available for rental or for sale! Contact Campbell-Sevey for details.
