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


The boiler plant that was replaced was from the 1940’s. Retrofitting the boiler plant with properly sized and controlled boilers resulted in a simple payback of under one year for the project.
