Electric Consumption

The cost to run electric auxiliaries should not be overlooked when considering the total cost to run a facility. The cost of auxiliaries can be found be determining the kilowatt - hours used and your cost per kilowatt - hour. Here is a quick "rule of thumb":

One horsepower (HP) of electricity is equal to 0.746 kilowatt-hours. A 1 HP motor running at full load for 24 hours would use 17.90 kilowatt-hours of electricity.

Now that you are able to determine your electric consumption for your auxiliaries, you can use that information to decide if additional energy efficiency upgrades are needed. Every little bit counts!

Tuna Fish and Boilers

Chicken of the SeaIf you love tuna then you are most likely already familiar with Chicken of the Sea. The company is opening a canning operation in Lyons, GA and they have selected Nationwide Boiler to supply a 650 hp (22,500 lbs/hr) Mobile Boiler Room for temporary steam. The new 200,000 square-foot facility will create 200 jobs around Toombs County and it is expected to be fully operational by October 2009.

Michael Medina, Nationwide Boiler's Rental Manager, shares the excitement the new plant has brought to local residents. “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 Chicken of the Sea brand and famous Mermaid icon are among the most recognized brands in America. Nationwide Boiler is proud that we can do our part (as small as it may be) to make sure it stays that way.
