Nationwide Boiler, established in 1967, has built a strong standing reputation by offering reliable rental boilers to assist industrial companies in both scheduled outages and unforeseen emergencies.
Featuring a diverse inventory of more than 100 boilers across various U.S locations, our equipment spans in size from 50 HP to 200,000 lb/hr and includes mobile package watertube boilers, fully equipped mobile boiler rooms, and skid mounted systems. Over the years, our company has expanded our capabilities, evolving into more than just a world-class rental boiler company. We are a stocking distributor, a UL-certified control panel design and manufacturing facility, and we provide sustainable solutions such as electric boilers, hydrogen blended fuel firing capabilities, and our CataStak™ Selective Catalytic Reduction (SCR) System.
As our company continues to evolve, we adjust to the changing times by providing environmentally friendly alternatives within the boiler industry. This involves the utilization of SCR and ultra-low NOx burners to manage NOx emissions, along with the integration of heat pumps and alternative fuel choices for the purpose of decarbonization.
Ultra-low NOx Solutions
Our journey into sustainable solutions commenced in the 1990’s with the introduction of the CataStak SCR to the market. The CataStak is an established solution for lowering NOx and CO emissions to single-digit levels, tailored for applications with package boilers, fired heaters, gas turbines, and other fired equipment. Equipment utilizing a CataStak SCR system has yielded source test results as low as 1 ppm NOx.
Recognizing that SCR technology may not be suitable for every application demanding ultra-low NOx performance, we serve as a supplier and user providing other options like ultra-low NOx burners. Several of our mobile boiler rooms and package firetube boilers incorporate these burners to comply with emissions standards in various regions of California and Texas. Therefore, we also deliver ultra-low NOx burners for permanent requirements when the application aligns better with burner technology.
Alternative Fuels for Decarbonization
Exploring alternatives to fossil fuels offers an additional avenue for sustainable steam and energy production. These alternatives encompass hydrogen, biofuels, and electricity, preferably sourced from renewable sources.
A preferred electric approach for high-pressure steam generation involves the use of electric boilers. Leveraging electricity as a clean, efficient, and easily controllable fuel, every unit of energy input into the boiler is converted to steam with an efficiency of 99%. Numerous industrial facilities possess the required power infrastructure to support an electric boiler, rendering it an optimal zero-emissions solution. Nationwide Boiler’s in-stock electric boiler packages are available for both rental and permanent applications.
Heat pumps are also a favored option for electric heating in comfort applications and, with ongoing technological advancements, are now being applied in industrial settings. Although heat pumps may not currently produce high-pressure steam, they can contribute to industrial processes by providing heat up to 240°F. Also, a heat pump is significantly more energy-efficient, utilizing only about one-third of the energy compared to traditional electric or fossil fuel heat-generating equipment for achieving the same temperature increase.
Lastly, hydrogen and biofuels are now being utilized more frequently as an environmentally friendly alternative to the prevalent use of natural gas or fuel oil in steam boilers. Hydrogen, a proven and low-emission fuel in the boiler industry for several years, offers virtually no carbon emissions. With experience and expertise in hydrogen and biofuels, our engineering group has confirmed that Nationwide Boiler’s existing fleet of package watertube rental boilers can effectively use blended fuels containing up to 20% hydrogen, with no need for system modifications. Originally designed to accommodate natural gas firing, this adaptability is made possible by our strict rental boiler construction standards, which integrate high-quality and robust components such as valving, fuel trains, burners, and more.
Drawing from our extensive history and the collective years of industry experience, our team is dedicated to providing trustworthy temporary rental boilers, sustainable solutions for steam generation, and more, all guided by the principles of "Integrity, Dependability, and Real Customer Service."
