• Water sample system

The U.S. Navy requires temporary steam supplies under many different circumstances. Most common among them are as back-up to facility boilers at Navy installations throughout the world, and as alternate steam sources for ships in port when their boilers are undergoing repairs. Transportability, meeting stringent low NOx regulations and compliance with MIL-SPECs are just a few of many requirements these systems meet.

Nationwide Boiler received a contract from the U.S. Navy Facilities Command to provide eight complete boiler systems, model NBI Low NOx Transportable Steam Plant. The contract included the following tasks: conceptual and detail design engineering, including CAD drawings, equipment selection, production fabrication and assembly, efficiency and emission compliance testing, quality assurance, and project engineering and management. All of these tasks were performed in full compliance with appropriate MIL- SPECs and contract requirements.

The NBI Low NOx Transportable Steam Plant is a self-contained unit mounted in a metal van-type enclosure attached to a steel base frame. The plant is designed to be shipped by rail, sea or over-the-road and to operate continuously with ambient temperatures ranging from -250 degrees to 110 degrees Fahrenheit at elevations from sea level to 5,000 feet.

The project was completed successfully with all requirements met and the eight transportable steam plants shipped to the customer in a timely manner. Today, Nationwide Boiler has in stock a variety of low NOx and ultra-low NOx transportable steam plants for rental or permanent use.
