Boiler Replacement


This project, scheduled for 2016 involves replacement of an existing 1973 40,000 PPH boiler with a new 60,000 PPH “O’”-style, dual fuel boiler with an economizer designed for an increased operating pressure of 250 PSIG. The project will also include replacement of the existing deaerator in a new location to improve overall plant safety. A new continuous blowdown heat recovery system will be provided to improve plant energy efficiency. Three existing 20,000 gallon underground fuel oil storage tanks will be replaced with two new 20,000 gallon tanks. And, a new emergency diesel 480V generator having a capacity of 200kW will also be included as part of the project.
