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.
