What kind of Cleaver Brooks do you have? The CB flex tube will give you the fastest start up time but if you have a model five or four you could cause cracking in the water walls by starting to fast. The Deltas also should not be startewd to fast
: I am working with a small oil refinery in the LA area that is installing a cogeneration system. The local air quality agency will not let us fire the cogen system concurrent with our backup boilers. Therefore, if the cogen system trips offline, we need to start up our Cleaver Brooks watertube backup boiler as quickly as possible to minimize problems in the refinery. Some of our people think it will take 3-4 hours to bring the backup boiler up to speed. Is this realistic? Is there any way to get us up in 15 minutes? I have heard that steam coils in the mud drum will help. Thanks for your thoughts.
