First of Three 200,000 lb/hr Boilers Headed to the Middle East

First 200,000pph Boiler Ready to Load the Ship at the Port of Houston

Nationwide Boiler is pleased to announce that we recently secured our largest rental project in our fifty one year history! This long-term rental includes three (3) 200,000 lb/hr, 750 psi / 750F superheated steam, skid-mounted package Babcock & Wilcox watertube boilers. We are also supplying a plant master work station and one (1) deaerator with pumps for the duration of the rental. The equipment will support the start-up of Saudi-Aramco's 106-square-kilometer refinery and terminal in Jizan, Saudi Arabia.

The first boiler was loaded at the Port of Houston over this past weekend, beginning a six week journey to the Port of Jizan. The other two boilers, along with additional equipment, will be coordinated in a phased shipment process.

Take a look at the time lapse video below to see the first boiler being loaded on the ship, and read our press release for additional details on this major rental project.

Great job to all involved and we look forward to a successful project!

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!

Why Rent a Mobile Boiler Room?

There are many different types of boiler options available in the rental market. Trailer-mounted boilers, skid-mounted boilers, transportable steam plants, and of course, mobile boiler rooms.

Mobile boiler rooms are highway-legal, transportable trailer-mounted vans or containers, designed and customized to house the components of a “mini” steam plant. This includes all of the necessary equipment with the proper hook-ups to supply a given amount of steam for most any application. Major equipment typically contained within a complete mobile boiler room includes a low NOx boiler, feedwater system, duplex water softener, chemical feed system, blowdown tank, and all valving and controls required for complete steam room operation. Typical mobile boiler rooms operate on natural gas, #2 oil, or propane, and range in size from 47.5 hp to 1,000 hp with design pressures from 150 to 290 psi.

What makes a mobile boiler room advantageous for end-users is that they require no special foundations, are fully enclosed, and can sustain inclement weather conditions without the use of costly weather protection. In addition, mobile boiler rooms are aesthetically pleasing in both industrial and commercial settings.

Nationwide Boiler has provided thousands of customers with high quality mobile boiler rooms that have not only met high steam demands, but have also required quick delivery, rapid start-up, and ease of operation. In most instances, a mobile boiler room requires one knowledgeable operator with proper training on boiler control safety and feedwater quality control. Industries that utilize mobile boiler rooms range from hospitals, food processors, pulp and paper plants, colleges and universities, and light manufacturing, just to name a few.

When deciding if renting a mobile boiler room is best for you, the following factors must be determined:

Boiler Steam Capacity. Since mobile boiler rooms are designed to fit into a highway-legal, trailer-mounted container or van, the boiler design must be considered. Nationwide Boiler’s 1,000 hp mobile boiler room tests the limits in design and capacity by utilizing a 53’ long, 4-axle trailer. This unit can produce 34,500 lbs/hr of steam and can operate up to 270 psi. If additional steam capacity is required, multiple units can be considered. As an alternative, a large trailer-mounted watertube boiler with separate mobile feedwater van can be rented.


Location.
Mobile boiler rooms are fully enclosed units and can be transported to any facility as long as proper electrical and utility hookups are available. Mobile boiler rooms are more operational and more secure than skid-mounted systems. This enables mobile boiler rooms to be utilized in public locations with decreased operational noise disturbances and possible tampering of exposed boiler equipment.

Ease of Operation. Mobile boiler rooms are designed to be fully operational steam plants, without the need of a full-time boiler control team. As long as daily boiler and feedwater quality logs are kept, and required maintenance is performed, then costly teams of operators can be avoided.

The evolution of mobile boiler rooms continues to expand and Nationwide Boiler is committed to supplying the right equipment for your needs. Contact a Nationwide sales representative today to determine if a mobile boiler room is the right choice for you.
