This year, the All Ways Steam Team was excited to attend Chicago’s AHR Expo—one of the oldest and largest heating and ventilation shows in the world. AHR Expo offers a unique opportunity for the entire industry to get together. It plays host to vendors and exhibitors from every state in the nation, plus representatives from 165 countries around the world.
In the first chapter of our new Boiler History series, we looked at the invention of the steam boiler and its rise from a simple kettle on a fire to a turn-of-the-century mechanical marvel. We left off with pioneers like George Babcock and Steven Wilcox, and firms like the Stirling Boiler Company and the Grieve Grate Company, competing to produce the best boilers, while Americans were coming to depend on the safe, reliable heat they provided.
If colder temperatures and shorter days have your boiler working overtime, then it’s the perfect time to make sure you’re taking all the necessary steps to maximize your energy efficiency. In addition to shaving money off operating costs, these tips will also help extend the life and effectiveness of your boiler. That means your overall cost of ownership will be reduced and your bottom line will benefit.
Through the years, we’ve all come to love the power and reliability of steam heat – just a load of this vintage model that was one of our very first rental boilers! But like every great invention, boilers have a rich history. In this new blog series, we’re going to take a look at some of the milestones in the evolution of the modern boiler and marvel at how far we’ve come.
Last month, the WARE team took our show on the road to attend the World Energy Engineering Congress (WEEC) and help spread the All Ways Steam message. The WEEC is the nation’s largest energy conference and technology expo for business, industrial and institutional energy users. They bring together top experts to develop clear paths to energy efficiency, facility optimization and sustainability. We think the WEEC is a great opportunity to find new ways to explore advances in energy efficiency and also happens to be a great way to introduce people to our company.
It may sound like something you did in college, but regular steam boiler blowdowns can actually help protect your boiler room investments. To avoid the concentration of impurities during the continual evaporation of steam, the water is blown out of the boiler with steam pressure.
Planning for the unexpected is one of the most important aspects of a rental boiler and having a rental boiler contingency plan is a great place to start. Rental contingency plans allow swift and efficient reactions to emergencies while saving time and money.
In 2005, WARE introduced Super High Efficiency Mobile Boiler solutions. As the front runner in this movement, WARE has continued to save its customers money on fuel and electricity with super high efficiency units.
