Nationwide Boiler has a diverse rental boiler fleet. From large trailer-mounted watertube boilers, mobile boiler rooms, and small skid-mounted firetube boilers, we offer our customers a variety of options to meet any potential steam or hot water heating need.

For ease of shipping, our mobile boiler rooms and mobile steam plants only require a tractor to hook-up and tow-away. This is the advantage of mobile self-contained equipment. However, some of our skid-mounted systems and firetube-only rental boilers, for customers that do not need a complete steam plant, require an over-sized forklift or crane service for loading. In either case, Nationwide Boiler will coordinate the pick-up, delivery and customer notifications through one of our trusted shipping companies. Note that skid-mounted equipment, when delivered on a flatbed, will require off-loading at the customer’s facility.

Nationwide Mobile Boiler Room Shipment

For some of our larger watertube rental boilers, 75,000 lb/hr steam output and above, a separate drop-deck trailer, in addition to the boiler trailer, is required. This is due to the height and weight limitations imposed by states’ transportation departments. Though this extra shipment is ‘highway-legal,’ the boilers, in comparison, require overweight permits and tagging and are sometimes restricted to daylight travel and curfews in larger metropolitan areas. For these reasons, additional components required for boiler operation, namely the forced draft fan and motor, economizer (if a standard piece of equipment), and the short stub stack, are delivered separately. They are off-loaded at the job site and installed once the rental boiler is in place and leveled.

Our CataStak™ SCR emission control systems, for use in non-attainment low NOx emission areas, are also delivered on a flatbed for job site off-loading and installation on the boiler flue outlet.

At Nationwide Boiler, we like to ensure that our customers are aware of the logistics required when renting our boilers and auxiliary equipment. If you have any questions or recommendations regarding our boiler shipments, please contact us today at 1-800-227-1966.

Ground level ozone, which is created by combining the emissions of nitrogen oxides and volatile organic compounds in the presence of sunlight, can cause respiratory health issues and has been on the radar for decades. Since 1980, substantial progress has been made on ozone reduction and levels have fallen 33% while the economy continues to grow. Most recently, the Obama Administration and the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) were evaluating the current ozone standard and proposed earlier this year a new decreased standard of 65 to 70 parts per billion (ppb). The current standard of 75 ppb was set in March of 2008, and some counties are still not in compliance.

The long awaited decision on the National Ambient Air Quality Standards was announced by the EPA yesterday, and the standard was reduced from 75 ppb to 70 ppb for ground-level ozone, produced by emissions released into the air from industrial plants, utilities, and vehicles. The EPA states that the public health benefits resulting from this new rule are an estimated annual savings of $2.9 to $5.9 billion in health care costs by 2025.

The EPA doesn’t expect states to comply to the new standard right away, and depending on the severity of the specific state’s ozone problem, the majority of states will have until between 2020 and 2025 to meet the standards. California, however, will have a longer period of time to comply, through 2037, due to its decades-long air pollution issues. Although fewer counties are in violation of the new standard than if they had lowered it to 65 ppb, 241 counties will be nonattainment for the 70 ppb standard, and it is estimated that 14 counties outside of California will not meet their deadlines.

States will be required to submit a state implementation plan (SIP) to the EPA for any designated nonattainment areas. The plans will outline how the State will attain and maintain the standard, and will contain control measures and strategies to reduce emissions. Plants that fall under the rule will likely be required to upgrade pollution equipment and monitoring systems to meet the new standard.
