Boiler 101: Why a Wet Seasonal Boiler Lay-Up May Be Right for You

Posted by Greg Frazier on Tue, Mar 31, 2015 @ 11:22 AM

Spring is finally here in the northeast! (Well sort of... it's still pretty darn cold.) And that means that it is time to consider how your boiler system will spend the next few months while it sits dormant offline. If you own and/or operate a facility with a commercial steam boiler that only gets seasonal use, then this topic is for you.

Boiler Water Treatment 101: What Causes Steam Boiler Failure?

Posted by Dominick Tuzzo on Fri, Nov 07, 2014 @ 05:04 PM

Keeping a steam boiler running at peak performance doesn’t happen by accident.  There are multiple factors that need to be assessed and addressed in order to operate a steam system properly; whether it is in a manufacturing plant, co-gen, at a hospital or in an apartment building.  A poorly maintained steam boiler system will cost more to operate in the long run and could ultimately fail altogether.

Save Money with Regular Plate and Frame Heat Exchanger Cleanings!

A plate-and-frame heat exchanger is a compressed pack of thin, vertically standing, corrugated metal plates usually made from stainless steel with open ports for the passage of two fluids between which the heat transfer will occur. The plate pack is pressed together between two thick metal pressure-retaining frames and is compressed with large tightening bolts.

Cold Water In Your Boiler Causes The Worst Brain Freeze Ever - PART 2

Posted by Greg Frazier on Mon, Sep 29, 2014 @ 12:57 PM

So in our last post we expounded on the dangers of filling a steam boiler with cold water.  Oxygen pitting and corrosion are the biggest common issues; however, if you are unlucky enough to add cold water to a boiler that is already running, you could have a much more serious problem on your hands.  Basic high school physics teaches us that metal expands and contracts under extreme heating or cooling.  Add to that scenario a high pressure steam vessel and cold water and BOOOM!  It’s not common, but adding cold water to hot steam system could cause an explosion; it has happened and probably will happen again.  (But not at your facility, because you read this post and you have taken the precautions necessary to avoid a catastrophe of that nature.)

Proper Safety Saves Lives, Time and Money in Water Treatment PART 2

Posted by Greg Frazier on Tue, Apr 01, 2014 @ 01:03 PM

In part one of this post, we discuss the rationale for your company adopting some kind of safety protocol. (You can read PART 1 of Proper Safety Saves Lives, Time and Money at the link at the bottom of this post.) Whether it is a safety procedures handbook that becomes part of your new hire package or something that is much more ingrained into your company’s daily culture is up to you and is really dictated by the type of business that you run. The circumstances of your business may not present very many potentially hazardous situations to your staff, in which case, your Safety Procedures could possibly be reviewed at a by-yearly meeting. However, if you run a construction business for instance, you may consider having a Weekly Safety Meeting. In some cases, your insurance company may even require it as a condition of your coverage.
