The federal government recognizes the potential for catastrophic failure of high pressure systems which merits stringent controls over those performing repairs and alterations. A pressure vessel is defined as any tank or vessel designed for operation above 15 p.s.i.g.
Boiler feed units has a function of maintaining the boiler’s water line so steaming can occur even when condensate is not returning. The control that starts and stops the pump is on the boiler. Boiler feed units are larger, with greater condensate reserves than Condensate Returns.
Advantages of Stainless Steel Factors that favor stainless steels selection as heat exchanger material over Aluminium include the following:
How often should an oil boiler be serviced? Peter Desens, corporate technical service manager for ECR International, Utica, NY, said, ‘The end user should continually monitor their heating system. For oil-fired equipment, it is an industry standard to have a service person maintain the equipment annually. This will ensure the equipment is operating at peak performance.’
Now that winter is drawing to a close, residential and commercial buildings will soon be switching their heating systems off and their air conditioning systems on. This is the ideal time of year to begin preparing your boiler for the next heating season assuring the building that the boiler will continue to operate at peak efficiency which translates into meaningful dollar savings. Recent inflated oil prices have alerted many buildings to the basic fact that an inefficient boiler will cost a building unnecessary wasted dollars that could be saved with proper maintenance.
Even trade professionals who are very attentive to HVAC maintenance can be willing to “let the boiler slide” for months or even years without a proper checkup. Why? In many cases ‘ especially with early generations of atmospheric gas boilers ‘ this happened because the equipment was designed to go a long time without maintenance.
Boiler efficiency is affected by and related to many things ‘ the age of your boiler, the size, and even the controls it uses. American Boiler Company can help your building increase its boiler efficiency by helping you recognize these common pitfalls.
When updating their current boiler systems, many commercial buildings are looking at a combined heat and power system . A’combined heat and power system uses a single fuel source to generate two kinds of energy. Commonly, this means a natural gas turbine creates hot water and electricity. The electrical generator produces heat, and this heat is then used to heat water. A combined heat and power system is more efficient than the traditional system of a standard boiler and electricity from the utility company.
If you’re considering updating your current commercial boiler or installing a new one, you want to invest in something which will end up paying for itself many times over. Here, we look at ways you can get the most out of your commercial boiler room investments.
Many commercial properties are recognizing the benefits of oil to gas boiler conversion and how it’s both safer and more cost effective. When it comes to boiler conversion, oil to gas seems to be the trend, and it can save you a lot of money on your energy costs. Oil tanks can overfill and spill, creating potentially dangerous circumstances. Of course, there are some things you should know before making a boiler conversion: oil to gas.
