Nationwide Boiler Presenting at the CIBO Industrial Emissions Conference

CIBO

Nationwide Boiler will have a table at this year’s Industrial Emissions Conference presented by the Council of Industrial Boiler Owners (CIBO). The conference begins next week, July 30 and is being held at the Sheraton Imperial Hotel in Durham, NC.

In addition to our exhibition, our very own Bill Testa will be presenting on the topic of California’s current boiler NOx control requirements. The Regional Clean Air Incentives Market (RECLAIM) program recently transitioned to a command-and-control regulatory structure, requiring Best Available Retrofit Control Technology (BARCT). In addition, implementation of BARCT has been expedited and must occur by 2023 due to AB617.

Nationwide Boiler has been in discussions with two prominent air regarding the best possible solution for users that are part of the RECLAIM program. Bill will be educating and informing attendees on these solutions at the upcoming meeting.

If you will be at the conference next week, be sure to find Bill and Jim Barbeau at table #14.

A Peek Into the History of One Nationwide Rental Boiler

Nationwide Boiler's rental fleet consists of many boilers in a variety of steam output capacities and design pressures. Some boilers in  our rental fleet remain rental units throughout their useful life, while others find permanent homes through used boiler sales. One unit in particular has seen the best of both worlds. 

This 70,000 lb/hr trailer-mounted package watertube boiler was originally manufacutred in 1997 and was an active part of our rental fleet for roughly 14 years. In 2011 it was purchased by one of Nationwide Boiler’s valued customers in Newark, CA, less than 5 miles from our headquarters in Fremont. In addition to the boiler package itself, we supplied our CataStak™ SCR system for sub 5 ppm NOx emissions and removed the boiler from the trailer for permanent installation within their facility.

Fast forward to 2016, when we received word that the facility was closing. Nationwide was given the opportunity to re-acquire the boiler buy the boiler back, as it was still in good operating condition. Knowing the quality of boilers that we maintain, rent, and sell, as well as the maintenance history from its current location, we took advantage of this opportunity and purchased the boiler.

The unit has been fully reconditioned and installed on a trailer for mobility and is now on it's first rental job out of retirement. Great job to Nationwide Boiler's shop personnel who took part in bringing this boiler back to life. On to the next one!
