Innovation has always been a hallmark for success at Nationwide Boiler and we continue to strive to help our industry grow through innovation.

It was just around ten years ago that we introduced our CataStak Selective Catalytic Reduction (SCR) System for reducing NOx emissions as much as 90%. Since then, we have supplied CataStak SCR's for rentals as well as permanent solutions for firetube boilerswatertube boilersgas turbinesfired heaters, and thermal oxidizers, and we expect an upward demand for these applications in the near future. We enhanced the technology and developed the Ammonia-free CataStak SCR system, utilizing a safe 32.5% liquid urea for users adverse to ammonia handling.

Today we have surpassed the sale and rental of 100 CataStak SCR systems and are well on our way with number 101 for a repeat sale to a satisfied customer. 

Contact Nationwide Boiler today to learn how you can decrease your facility's operating costs and lower your carbon footprint with a Nationwide Boiler CataStak SCR System! Call 1-800-227-1966.

A silicone materials manufacturer in West Virginia has selected Nationwide Boiler to supply a new boiler in the continued expansion of their processing plant. The new boiler was also purchased for reliability measures to be sure they will meet their steam demand and to cover any future issues with their existing aging equipment. 

The 99.9 mmbtu, 750 psi design Babcock & Wilcox boiler was a duplicate of their previous purhcase from Nationwide Boiler in 2009. They were also supplied with Nationwide Boiler's exclusive EconoStak Economizer for maximum efficiency and a low NOx burner that will not exceed 30 ppm NOx.

 There were three key elements that helped Nationwide secure the repeat sale to this customer:

  1. Staying under 100 mmbtu input allowed for faster air permitting and also avoided new source performance standards review and the requirement of a continuous emissions monitoring system (CEMS).

  2. The equipment was new and readily available for quick shipment.

  3. The customer was satisfied with the previous boiler's performance and Nationwide's outstanding customer service, and they felt comfortable working with familiar and trusted people.

 Check out our press release for the full story, and call Nationwide Boiler at 1-8100-227-1966 to see how we can provide reliable steam solutions for your facility.

Manufacturers of all sizes are invited to visit the Superior Energy Performance’s (SEP) new website that helps certify your facility and recognizes facilities that demonstrate energy management excellence and sustained energy savings.  Through this globally recognized, U.S. Department of Energy supported certification, facilities are provided the resources and tools needed to help save energy costs through operational and capital improvements, increase productivity, and improve competitiveness.

To be certified under Superior Energy Performance™ (SEP), a facility must conform to the ISO 50001 energy management standard and additional energy performance improvement and other requirements that have been codified under the ANSI/MSE 50021. These achievements must be audited by an ANSI-ANAB Accredited SEP Verification Body.  Companies currently certified include Mack Trucks, Olam Spices, Dow Chemical, and 3M.

Nationwide Boiler believes that energy conservation is everyone’s responsible.  We supply innovative products including Best Performance Standard (BPS) boilers and CataStak SCR systems that decrease energy consumption and lower costs thought alternative technology choices.

If you were to ask what the most common device used in steam boilers to protect from overpressure conditions, the answer would be the safety valve.  The first safety valves were introduced in the early 19th century as result of boiler explosions on ships and locomotives.  Today, a safety valve is a critical and necessary part of a boiler system used to protect human life and property from different situations that may arise including:

•    An imbalance of fluid flow rate caused by inadvertently closed or opened isolation valves on a process vessel.
•    Failure of a cooling system, which allows vapor or fluid to expand.
•    Compressed air or electrical power failure to control instrumentation.
•    Transient pressure surges.
•    Heat exchanger tube failure.
•    Uncontrollable exothermic reactions in chemical plants.
•    Ambient temperature changes.

To learn more about safety valves, their types, selection, installation and sizing, visit the following link: http://www.spiraxsarco.com/resources/steam-engineering-tutorials/safety-valves/introduction-to-safety-valves.asp

This site provides a comprehensive list of tools and resources specific to steam generation and is beneficial for boiler owners.
