Boilers & Power Boilers


​Boilers, Hot Water & Steam

Boilers are systems used to heat water to produce hot water and/or steam for many purposes, such as heating, cooking, cleaning, and process steam.  Boiler systems are used in residential homes, commercial buildings, institutions, schools, hospitals, and industrial facilities to name a few. The systems are generally fired by natural gas, propane, or fuel oil. The systems typically consist of a pressure vessel, heat exchanger, power burner, fuel train, and controls for blow down and for maintaining a minimum water level for proper operation.

Boiler feedwater lines typically include in-line strainers and automatic on-off solenoid valves. Although the boiler is producing hot water or steam, the boiler manufacturer does not typically supply the valves used to control the flow of hot water or steam.

Fuel trains consist of UL, FM, or CSA agency listed combination shutoff valves with integral regulator for residential systems while larger commercial & industrial systems use discrete manual shutoff valves, pressure regulator, pressure switches, automatic fuel shutoff valves and vent valves.

Power Boilers

Power boilers are large typically field erected systems used to produce hot water and/or steam for purposes such as heat recovery for incinerators, co-generation and industrial processes in large industrial, chemical & petrochemical process facilities. These systems are generally fired by natural gas & fuel oil. The boiler system consists of a pressure vessel, heat exchanger, power burner, fuel train, and controls for blow down and maintaining a minimum water level for proper operation.

Boiler feedwater lines typically include in-line strainers and automatic on-off solenoid valves. Although the boiler is producing hot water or steam, the valves for hot water or steam are typically not supplied by the power boiler manufacturer.

Pilot and main fuel trains consist of UL, FM or CSA agency listed manual shutoff valves, pressure regulators, pressure switches/gauges, automatic fuel shutoff valves and vent valves/proving systems.
