Emergency Planning for the New Year

We receive a variety of calls each day from companies that require boiler rental equipment. Reasons vary and   include items such as boiler outages, planned maintenance, unreliable equipment, and additional steam output needs.  When renting equipment from any rental company, up front planning is the most important stage.  Items to consider include:

- Maximum potential steam load needed
- Equipment location
- Fuel Source
- Accessible and sufficient connection lines
- Equipment needed

To help alleviate the stress from renting a boiler and to streamline the rental process, Nationwide Boiler developed the Emergency Preparedness Plan: Guidelines for Preparing for a Temporary Steam Plant.  This guide covers all the basics including Boiler size and weight, power requirements, piping sizes, instrument air, weather protection, local codes and rental boiler specifications.  Download your copy today and call us if you have any questions - we are here to help: 510-490-7100.

Increase Your Plant Production with a New Boiler

Many customers have relied on Nationwide Boiler for new and reconditioned boilers to help increase production capabilities.  As a stocking distributor for the Babcock & Wilcox Company, Nationwide Boiler has complete boiler systems readily available for immediate delivery.   The example below illustrates how Titan Chemicals Corp. (formerly Titan PetChem), one of the largest polyolefin producers in South-East Asia, looked upon Nationwide Boiler for an immediate boiler solution to replace three existing boilers that were at the end of their useful life.  The company also wanted to expand production and required additional steam capacity.

Nationwide Boiler supplied Titan Chemicals with two new 200,000 lb/hr Babcock & Wilcox Model FM, 750 psig/750°F superheat boilers. The units were in stock and were available for immediate shipment to Malaysia.  Low NOx burners and EconoStak economizers for added fuel efficiency were also included with the boilers.  Both boilers were shipped by rail from Babcock & Wilcox's storage facility located in Mississippi to an ocean vessel cargo dock located in Texas for final delivery to Malaysia.

Overall, the two units easily met Titan Chemicals' excess process and cogeneration steam demands, originally achieved by three units. As well as meeting the customer's needs, the new equipment simplified boiler operation and maintenance as a result of consolidation of the boilers. In the end, the customer received the new boilers on time and was able to expand production capabilities as planned.

Be sure to give Nationwide Boiler a call when you are in need of a new boiler.  We stock a large assortment of new and used equipment and regularly update our inventory list of new and reconditioned watertube and firetube boilers.

What's Your Lost Production Worth to You

When renting a boiler one important factor to consider is location and where the boiler is being shipped from.  The location of the unit dictates transit time, shipping costs, freeze protection considerations and most importantly...your downtime and lost production.

Nationwide Boiler truly is "nationwide" and so are our boilers. We have many boiler storage depots scattered across the United States so our boilers can get to you as quickly as possible -  saving both time and money.  Ask yourself,  "What's my lost production worth ?".  The answer is “Nationwide Boiler”.
