University Steam Plant Expansion

Our client, a university in southern Ontario, was looking to expand their steam plant with the addition of a new industrial steam boiler. The challenge was that the boiler, economizer, and all auxiliary equipment had to be designed to fit into an extremely tight footprint.

Bacon Engineering custom designed the boiler to have the exit flue gas come out the top and side of the boiler so that the economizer could be lowered below the top drum of the boiler to coincide with the building's height. We also include in the spec a dual forced drive electric fan that could operate with or without a variable frequency drive (VFD) and steam turbine. The entire system meets current NFPA, B149 gas code and all provincial (TSSA) guidelines, as do all projects we engineer.
