Automotive manufacturing processes have changed dramatically over the years. Such was the case for a downriver auto plant; reduced steam needs ultimately made their 30 year old firetube boilers oversized, causing efficiency losses and reliabilty issues.
(2) Cleaver-Brooks CFH modular steam firetube boilers
Solution & Results
By replacing one of the exisiting firetube boilers with two smaller CFH boilers, the plant is able to sustain more consistant and reliable steam service to the user. The smaller boilers are more efficient and better match the smaller steam loads now present in the facility.
