Gas-fired boilers

For commercial use, low- and high-pressure-steam CFH boilers are available in 10- to 60-hp models. The compact gas-fired boilers are 85-percent efficient and have sound emissions of less than 70 dBA, nitrogen-oxide (NOx) emissions of less than 30 ppm, and up to a 5-to-1 turndown ratio via linkageless fuel/air control.

Fluidized-bed-boilers brochure

A brochure from Babcock & Wilcox Power Generation Group highlights the benefits of bubbling fluidized-bed boilers and their applications for new and retrofit conversion projects. The brochure details the boilers' operational and environmental advantages, such as fuel flexibility, reliability, efficiency, and ease of operation. The brochure also lists a wide range of fuels that the boilers can burn, such as biomass, bark, wood wastes, and sludges.

Condensing boilers

Atlas condensing boilers are available in seven models from 500,000 to 3 million Btu with no minimum inlet temperature. The boilers are fully modulating, with a 7.5-to-1 turndown ratio and 98-percent thermal efficiency. The units have sealed combustion chambers with NOx emissions of less than 10 ppm.

Circulator-pumps leaflet

A leaflet from Grundfos details the company's line of Magna wet-rotor circulator pumps. The leaflet includes information about the pumps' performance, flange connections, hydraulics, permanent-magnet rotors, and in-slot winded stators. Tables show the estimated power-consumption savings possible with fixed-speed pumps. Full-color photos, technical data, and a list of applications are included.

Pump controllers

For use with commercial and industrial hot-water and steam boilers, tanks, and vessels, the 150E is a low-water-cutoff pump controller and alarm actuator. Featuring adjustable 60-sec burner-off time delays, the controller provides continuous primary or secondary protection against low-water conditions and rapid burner cycling.
