Albert Kahn was hired to design a climate controlled “Driving Dynamics Lab” that could simulate temperatures from -40F to 140F for vehicle testing. The design required a boiler that could handle all temperature ranges during heatup cycles.
Cleaver-Brooks Clearfire CFC 1500
Solution & Results
The solution was the Cleaver-Brooks Clearfire CFC 1500 MBH boiler x 4. The unique features of the Clearfire boiler allow for large temperature fluctuations given its Duplex Stainless Steel HX w/ Alufer Firetube technology. The counterflow design of the HX promotes optimal heat transfer while promoting maximum boiler efficiency.
