Thanks George, I am already considering what you propose. I know Labatt Breweries in Toronto has done this. My concern is the capital cost premium for doing this, and how fast it can pay back through energy savings. I may contact you as the time draws near.
: : I am putting together a capital equipment request for replacement of one of my boilers. I need a ballpark figure on the cost of JUST the boiler. I will be doing controls and auxiliaries separately so that doesn't need to be part of the price.
: : Specs: D-Type watertube, 75,000 lb/hr, 250 psig, natural gas & #2 fuel oil, FD fan included.
: Why don't you consider the modern alternative, and install a bank of 8-300 HP Miura boilers? They can, through proprietary controls, cut in and off line as required and save you heating up that whole, big 75,000 lb/hr boiler. Contact me.
