So simple to maintain and operate, Rite Steam Boilers feature complete waterside access so that virtually all scale and mud deposits can be seen and mechanically cleaned during a single scheduled maintenance shutdown. The result - Better fuel-to-steam efficiency and lower operating cost over the life of your boiler investment. Consider a few of our other standard features:
- Rite’s floating heads that eliminate pressure vessel cracks and broken welds caused by thermal stress cycling (backed by our 25 Year Thermal Shock Warranty)
- Rite’s “superheated” drying tubes that regularly boost steam quality at the nozzle into the 99%+ range
- Rite’s bolted/gasketed headplates that eliminate any possibility of hydraulic explosion in the event that safety devices fail - and you have a better boiler by design.
Rite Power Burner Fired Low Pressure Steam Boilers must be specified when: Low NOx emissions are required or fuels other than natural gas will be used. While Power Burners are more expensive and use more electrical power than atmospherics, they do have one advantage: by controlling the amount of air they use for combustion, Power Burners achieve higher combustion efficiencies than atmospherics – especially at less than full fire rate.
Both use Power Burners to combust the fuel, but the similarities end there. Forced draft boilers require larger fan motors to “push” the products of combustion out a sealed combustion chamber and into a positive pressure stack. Should a leak develop in the combustion chamber or stack of a forced draft boiler – potentially toxic flue gasses could escape into the boiler room.
Rite Power Burner Fired Boilers use smaller fan motors to combust the fuel only. All Rite Boilers are designed to operate with negative pressure combustion chambers and stacks, which means flue gasses are safely under negative draft conditions from the time the fuel is burned until they exit the stack.
