Deaerators are pressure vessels. Their main purpose is to produce preheated boiler feedwater and to remove O2 and CO2 gases from the boiler to the greatest extent possible. If the system is not operating as specified, major damages to your boiler system can occur due to un-removed dissolved O2 and CO2 present in the feedwater.
In August, WARE received the very first of Victory Energy’s new dryback firetube boilers. Traditionally, Victory’s Frontier® series has been characterized by its wetback firetube boiler model. However, with the success of this model’s production and demand for a dryback option, Victory Energy announced earlier this year that they would be expanding the product line to satisfy market requests. Within just a few short months, Victory has proven their ability to take the idea from conception to reality, delivering on their promise. WARE has a history of successes and a good relationship with Victory Energy’s watertube boilers, so with a combination of proven manufacturing capabilities, cost-effectiveness, and the availability of a reliable center-fire design, it makes sense for WARE to utilize this new design in its offerings.
What do vulcanization, treads, and steam all have in common?
The more that we research the more applications for steam that we are learning about! Tires are just another example of an application where steam plays a big role. Green tires are placed into a mold and steam is injected at 300 degrees, the green tire then becomes pliable enough to take on the shape of the mold for the tire tread.
In the past when building trailers, we originally used checker plate steel on the floor, and we also put steel on the walls.
On this episode of The Boiling Point Jude Wolf will discuss the advantages of probe type water level controls over the float type.
Steam has generally been used a heating or power source in the industrial world, but now scientists are finding there are likely many more applications that can improve our world. Whether it is an accidental spill or an intentional chemical attack, scientists are discovering better ways to cleanup toxic chemicals using new technology involving steam.
Making your boiler room as efficient as possible is important, as there can be a great deal of energy lost into the environment if you don't take certain precautions. Insulating all the parts of your boiler room is one of the quickest and most cost-effective way to increase the return on your investment--and the return can come much quicker than you may expect! While efficient operation is a huge win, offering your employees a safe place to work may be an even bigger incentive to take the time, effort and expense required to review and update your boiler room insulation. Don't overlook this important safety barrier between your employees and super-heated steam within the pipes.
