Welcome Nationwide Boiler's Newest Representatives: GIANTECH Engineering and Aujan Industrial Solutions!

With business booming both domestically and overseas, Nationwide Boiler is pleased to announce that we have signed on two new representatives to cover our international client base. Please help us welcome GIANTECH Engineering Ltd. Pte and Aujan Industrial Solutions to the Nationwide representative network.

GIANTECH is a one-stop engineering and service organization for many marine and offshore equipment manufacturers, assisting ship owner/operators and fleet managers with their tanker and transport needs. In addition, they represent many boiler, burner, and related product manufacturers. We are already working with them on the potential of providing a new B&W boiler to one of our previous customers in Malaysia, and having that local support is a big advantage. GIANTECH will cover the ASEAN region (Singapore, Vietnam, Indonesia, and Malaysia).

Aujan Industrial Solutions (AIS) has provided the highest quality safety products and solutions to the oil and gas industry since 1977. AIS serves all segments of the market through their four branches located in key parts of the Kingdom. They provide turn-key project services, taking a job from the design phase all the way through commissioning and training, as well as installation, inspection, calibration, and maintenance services. Aujan Industrial Solutions' territories include the GCC Middle East (Saudi Arabia, UAE, Bahrain, Qatar, Kuwait, and Oman).

We look forward to building a larger client base in these regions and working with both of these reputable companies to provide superior steam solutions to customers across the world!

New 110,000 lb/hr Superheat Boiler Provides Increased Steam Capacity

With short summers and weather as unpredictable as it is charming, much of Newfoundland and Labrador relies on NARL Refining’s ability to provide warmth and clean fuel. We were able to assist with the refinery’s needs by providing them with one of our new in-stock 110,000 lb/hr trailer-mounted superheat boilers. The 750 psig design watertube boiler was manufactured by Babcock & Wilcox, who recommended Nationwide Boiler for the job per our stock boiler program.

To learn more about the boiler sale and how we were able to accommodate the customer’s need for an immediately available unit, read our latest case study. (PDF will download in a new window.)

Proper Boiler Water Treatment is Key

Boiler operators know that one of the most critical aspects of operating a boiler is well balanced water chemistry.  To ensure a well balance mix involves continually monitoring makeup water, condensate, feedwater and boiler water qualities.  

ABB Inc’s Jon Penn recently published an article in Power Engineering that lists four major contaminants that jeopardize power plant operation and maintenance:  dissolved oxygen, hydrazine, sodium and silica.  As mentioned in the article, “The absence of adequate monitoring and control will almost certainly lead to both increased costs and more frequent component failures. Evidence shows that allowing boiler chemistry to vary from specified limits can result in expensive plant outages, potentially incurring costs of more than $1 million per day.”

This is an important subject for all boiler owners and proper water treatment will increase the life of your equipment.  You can read the entire article at: http://www.power-eng.com/articles/print/volume-118/issue-2/abma-special-section/four-boiler-contaminants-that-jeopardize-power-plant-operation-and-maintenance.html
