When a shutdown (emergency or planned) of your plant includes all the components to operate your boiler the only solution is a completely furnished Portable Boiler Room.
A Portable Boiler Room model typically ranges in size from 50 HP to 1000 HP and includes all the equipment to successfully produce steam and/or hot water to your facility. The included equipment, depending on size, includes the boiler, the control system, safety devices, feedwater/deaerator system with feedwater pumps and feedwater valve, water treatment (softeners and/or chemical tank and pump), blowdown separator, and all the components required to run on either natural gas, #2 oil, or propane. The sizes of these systems vary from 20’ to 53’ containers, but all the equipment is pre-installed, pre-wired, and ready to go upon arrival.
If you have an emergency with your current boiler, then a Portable Boiler Room is the ideal solution for you.
A Portable Boiler Room is a complete stand-alone solution. All the necessary equipment is included, it is containerized with exterior connections, it arrives as a complete system with all operational controls, and it is protected from the outside elements. It even has the ability to operate on natural gas, #2 oil, or propane.
Although Portable Boiler Rooms have a lot of advantages, there are some factors that should be taken into consideration before purchasing or renting a Portable Boiler Room.
It offers redundant equipment for facilities that have operating feedwater treatment and supply system. In addition, it has a larger footprint than other solutions, making it less environmentally friendly.
