Mobile Boiler Rooms & Temporary Boilers
Over thirty years ago the first mobile boiler rooms were introduced by Nationwide Boiler featuring firetube boilers in a range of sizes. The boiler was housed in a self-contained, highway-legal mobile van that was fully piped and wired and designed for outdoor installation (weather protected). Today, Nationwide Boiler mobile boiler rooms range in size from 47.5 - 650 HP with operating pressures from 150 - 250 psi. Mobile Boiler Rooms typically feature a duplex water softener, chemical feed and blowdown system, and all valving and controls required for complete steam room operation. Electrical controls meet FM and NFPA 85 requirements.

Nationwide Boiler also carries mobile steam plants, with firetube boilers and support equipment mounted on an open, highway-legal trailer. These boilers were designed and are ideal for states with minimal inclement weather, such as California and Arizona.

Benefits of a Mobile Boiler Room
Enclosed work area - The entire steam plant, water treatment equipment and system controls are mounted inside a van-type structure.
Inclement weather protection - No additional structures are required for protecting the equipment from rain or freezing temperatures.
Personnel convenience - These units provide office space for maintaining logbooks, water chemistry testing, etc., and are designed for the comfort of boiler operators.
Aesthetically pleasing - Mobile boiler rooms are attractive, which can be an important consideration if the temporary steam plant is going to be located in a place that is visible to the public.
Project Spotlight - Chicken of the Sea
Chicken of the Sea selected Nationwide Boiler Inc. to supply the company’s new Lyons, GA canning plant with a 650 HP (22,500 lbs/hr) Mobile Boiler Room for temporary steam. The new 200,000 square-foot facility was planned to help in the creation of 200 jobs around Toombs County and was expected to be fully operational by October 2009. The plant plans to process frozen tuna loins into Chicken of the Sea canned tuna.
Nationwide Boiler's Rental Sales Manager, Michael Medina, helped secure the order, noting the positive effect the new plant will have on the local economy. "This new plant is a major accomplishment for Chicken of the Sea and the surrounding community. We are proud that our boiler will allow the plant to efficiently produce their tuna and quickly bring it to market throughout the United States.”
The portable boiler was on site for one-year and easily met the steam requirements of the plant. Today, the Chicken of the Sea plan is still operating strong and is proud to bring manufacturing back in the U.S.
