The boiler team was brought in during design development for expertise by M/E Engineering. There was a history of asbestos in the plant, and so heavy EPA scrutiny required effluent treatment.
The complete boiler plant replacement consisted of:
- Two (2) 350 HP 200 psi steam boilers
- One (1) 60 HP 400 psi steam boiler
The equipment installed included:
- Superior boilers
- Superior dearator
- Penn heat recovery blowdown separator
- Fabtek blowdown treatment tank for effluent
Boiler plant replaced was from the 1940’s. They had to vent steam in order to run the boiler plant at low load. The amount of steam that was wasted in one year paid for the project.
