New Boiler and Catastak SCR System Supplied To Major Texas Oil Refinery

Nationwide Boiler Inc. recently facilitated the expedited delivery of a new boiler system in less than six months to a major crude oil refinery in El Paso, Texas. The boiler supplied is a new, in-stock Babcock & Wilcox D type watertube package boiler, model FM120-124, capable of producing 200,000 lb/hr of superheated steam and designed at 750 psig / 750°F superheat. The system includes a low NOx burner, an EconoStak economizer, a Nationwide CataStak™ SCR NOx Reduction System (using 19% aqueous ammonia and vaporizer), SIL Level 2 Burner Management System, desuperheater, stack, and FD fan.

The plant currently processes approximately 128,000 bpd of crude oil and with this replacement boiler, plant capacity is expected to increase to 150,000 bpd. “As refineries seek to quickly increase capacity and comply with strict emission regulations, Nationwide Boiler is uniquely qualified to provide in-stock boiler solutions that incorporate the highest standards in safety, efficiency and emission reducing capabilities," said Larry Day, Nationwide Boiler Vice President, Sales & Marketing. “Our long-lasting relationship with Babcock & Wilcox and other OEM suppliers has enabled Nationwide Boiler to provide the highest quality boiler systems to customers located throughout the world. This project is another example of how we can meet the needs of those customers seeking immediate boiler solutions.”

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.
