Redesigned Indeck superheat boilers improve operational efficiency

Indeck Power Equipment has redesigned its 75,000pph superheat watertube boilers to save in fuel costs and provide higher efficiency while improving operations.

Many heavy processing industries like petroleum, chemical, food, and pulp/paper rely on superheated steam to accomplish their production.

The 75,000pph superheat 'O' type boilers are constructed in accordance with ASME code and perform at 750psig and 750° design and are available for boiler rental or boiler sale.

These updated superheat boilers are designed with a large heat transfer surface for increased boiler efficiency and to lower furnace pressure drops.

These features equate to smaller force draft fan horse power requirements and lower fuel consumption, with the benefit of lower operational costs.

The boilers are designed to take several fuel types including natural gas or #2 oil and include the manufacturer's standard boiler trim, low NOx burner, and combustion controls.

They come complete with Class I Div 2 controls, high efficiency fan motors, optional three-element feedwater controls, fully metered controls, and O2 trim package.

Economisers and the Indeck selective catalytic reduction systems (I-SCRs) are available for increased efficiency and NOx reduction.

Economisers are used to reduce fuel use by recovering heat from boiler stack gases that would otherwise be lost to the environment. 

When lower NOx emissions are required to satisfy air permit requirements, Indeck's I-SCR systems are available to support plant operations.
