Congratulations Nationwide! 3,000 days without a lost time!

Nationwide Boiler continues to break the company’s safety record and has recently achieved over 3,000 days without a lost time accident, as of April 19, 2013.  This is the longest length of time Nationwide has gone without an accident in the company’s over forty-five year history.

As a member of  ISNetworld and PICS supplier pre-qualification systems, Nationwide Boiler’s esteemed safety record is a valuable asset for bidding projects that require high standards in safety and compliance, prominently seen in projects including refineries, chemical processing plants and government facilities.  Prospective customers can be assured that employees of Nationwide Boiler will comply with strict safety standards and that those standards will be followed while on a customer job site.  In addition, Nationwide Boiler’s Experience Modification Rate (EMR), a benchmark measure used for insurance premium discounts that compare worker compensation claims to other employers of similar size operating in the same type of business, continues to be reduced due to the company’s record of zero lost time accidents.

Keep up the good work Nationwide and let's continue to play it safe on the job.

Innovative NOx Control Achieved with Nationwide Boiler’s Ammonia-Free CataStak SCR System

Nationwide Boiler Inc. recently completed the retrofit of two 55,000 lb/hr natural gas fired boilers with a common Ammonia-Free CataStak™ selective catalytic reduction (SCR) system at the NRG Energy Center San Francisco. The SCR system utilizes Combustion Components Associates, Inc. (CCA) patented TRIM-NOX® urea injection system and is an urea based solution offered as an alternative to anhydrous ammonia. This system eliminates the need for end-users to store or handle ammonia, which typically requires a HAZMAT safety program if stored in volumes greater than five-hundred pounds.

If you have a project that needs to meet tough NOx emission limits, call Nationwide Boiler today. We have the innovative, proven solution.

Natural Gas vs. Coal: A New Era of Electric Power Generation

In an attempt to comply with new strict air quality regulations, companies have cut back on their use of coal and have instead been using natural gas to generate electrical power in U.S. power plants. According to the Energy Information Administration (EIA), from March 2011 to March 2012, power plants in the U.S. increased natural gas consumption by 40%.

With the many new regulations targeting air pollution and specific chemicals released into the air, coal is not the cheap alternative anymore. In fact, a natural gas plant can comply with the EPA’s proposed standards at a much lower cost than a coal plant. This is because in order for a coal-fired plant to comply with new regulations, they must install CCS technology, or carbon capture and storage technologies, which can cost up to twice as much as energy generated through natural gas. Clearly, natural gas is the cheaper, safer and more efficient way to generate electrical power.

Recently, Nationwide Boiler was involved in a coal-to-gas plant conversion at Duke University. We provided two rental boilers throughout the project to provide supplemental steam to the plant. Overall, the conversion of Duke’s steam plants has helped the University take a significant step towards its goal of becoming carbon neutral by 2024.
