Superior Boiler Works, Inc., Delivers Custom-Engineered Deaerator to Utility Plant
System Helps Critical Utility Plant Achieve Greater Energy Efficiency
HUTCHINSON, Kan. (Nov. 7, 2017)
Superior Boiler Works, Inc., recently manufactured and delivered a custom-engineered deaerator boiler feedwater system for a major power-generating facility operating in the northeast United States. The completed system was a significant engineering project that showcased the full capabilities of SBW’s feedwater system team, from initial design phase through manufacturing, final acceptance and a rigorous quality inspection process.
Superior’s team was tasked with the structural engineering involved for ladders, platforms and the unit as a whole, as well as assembly of the entire unit in the factory to ensure fit and function. The highlights of the delivered unit consisted of a tray-type 200,000 pound-per- hour (pph) deaerator feeding boiler water at 380 psig from a 4,000-gallon storage tank compartment. It included a custom hot-dipped, galvanized ladder and platform structure, which, along with the entire system, was more than 37 ft. tall and was certified to the latest seismic standards by licensed engineers.
“Our customer presented Superior with a unique challenge, and our entire team, from sales to engineering through operations, worked together to provide a robust solution specific to their needs,” said Superior Boiler Works Vice President of Sales & Marketing Gabriel Dauphin. “One of our strengths is having control over the entire process, since we design and manufacture all of our deaerators in our facilities. Our engineering department works closely with our customers and operations to insure we deliver the best possible design to our customers with exceptional value.”
Superior Boiler Works will have information available about its deaerators and boilers at its exhibit booth during the upcoming Power-Gen conference in Las Vegas from December 4-7, 2017.
