If you’re using your heating boiler to supply your building with hot water during the warm weather months, you’re missing out on the significant benefits of installing a separate domestic hot water heater.
American Boiler Company is pleased to announce that it now holds an ASME R Stamp Certification issued by The National Board of Boiler & Pressure Vessel Inspectors. The company is authorized to perform welding repairs and alterations of boilers and pressure vessels. Performing welding repairs on pressure retaining items demands a high degree of technical skill and is subject to strict oversight by state and federal agencies. Receiving the “R-Stamp” Certification is a major milestone for the company, and a testament to the level of skill demonstrated by the company’s welders and its administrative oraganization.
If you operate a boiler that has an input of over 5 million BTUs and youve overlooked the NJDEPs annual combustion reporting requirement, expect a visit from an inspector with the authority to issue a hefty fine. This inspector is likely to be from your county health department, which is tasked with enforcing the NJDEPs emissions reporting requirements.
American Boiler Company Expands Serving Area for Rental Boilers to Include NYC
For the past year, American Boiler Company has been laying the groundwork for its expansion into the NYC market. All the preparation and administrative filings finally culminated in a dramatic nighttime transport of a 600 HP boiler over the George Washington Bridge on a chilly night in January. The boiler was headed to a 45 story high rise building under construction in Long Island City. With the colder weather moving into the region, it was critical to get the boiler in place so that construction could continue uninterrupted.
American Boiler Company Develops Low Cost Remote Boiler Monitoring Service
IRVINGTON, N.J.,March 7, 2016–American Boiler Company is pleased to announce it has signed a deal with EI Associates, a leading architectural, multi-discipline engineering and construction management firm since 1934, to develop a low cost remote boiler monitoring service. The new service called Exception6.com provides an alternative to the “24 Hour Rule” requiring on-site boiler operators for boiler plants larger than 100HP (4,000,000 BTU). It is designed to fully comply with existing boiler code and boiler operator regulatory requirements.” We are excited about the opportunity to partner with American Boiler Company and the value this service can deliver to customers who operate boiler plants that require 24 hour boiler operators. It’s a game changer. The price is right and it’s easy to use,” says Robert Paine, P.E., LEEDAP, HBDP, EI Associates Director of Mechanical Projects.
It is not uncommon for property owners or facility managers to wait until a boiler completely breaks down before replacing the unit. To make things worse, these types of failures happen when there is real need for heat (for instance, a very cold day) and since the failure is unexpected, there are rarely emergency funds allocated to fix the problem.
