Eastern Kentucky University Retube Job is a Success

Working with a coal-fired boiler of this size is a bit different

Six members of the Ware team worked on a project in collaboration with the Heat Plant at Eastern Kentucky University to retube a 3-story tall boiler. The boiler, located on EKU’s campus in Richmond, Kentucky, provides heat to multiple buildings on campus, including dormitories.

The boiler is a mid-60’s model and is fueled by coal. While coal is cheaper than any other type of boiler fuel, it does bring more stringent EPA regulations. Through this retube job, the team at Ware is working to ensure that the boiler meets all of those regulations, however stringent they may be.
