I run an electric boiler. It has never given me a problem in 10 years. I only blow it down. No
other maintance. Yes it cost more to run.
: We are currently revaluating our current steam
process. The Idea came up that maybe electric boilers may work for our process verses gas boilres.We currently have a 35 horse power steam boiler and operates on natural gas. We maintain about 100 lbs of constant presure and regulate down to about 20 pounds at our tool.Our efficientioncy rate in regards to up time and maintenanace is great no problems. We are considering the possibility of using electric boilers because we are moving to a new building.What are the pros and cons electeric verses gas? can electric maintain efficiency and preasure needed? Is it more cost effective to use gas verses electric?Are electric boilers more labor intensive in regards to maintenanace? How about safety ? If anyone can ansewr any of these questions it would be greatly appreciated. Thanks Felix ffiguerosteelcase.com
