A mobile boiler is a portable, fully operational boiler room used to provide hot water, steam, or domestic hot water.
Mobile boilers can be utilized in numerous applications, but primarily, they are used for scheduled shutdowns or emergencies.
If you rely on a source of power to conduct your day-to-day operations, you may want to invest in a contingency plan if something happens. A mobile boiler comes in handy then, eliminating downtime, leading to significant losses of money or production. One of the easiest ways for homeowners or business owners to reduce operating costs is to increase their boiler’s efficiency. Understanding the right ways to use your boiler may considerably improve its performance and efficiency, saving you money on reduced energy costs. To increase your mobile boiler’s efficiency, lower the stack temperature. Reducing stack temperatures can lower the operating pressure for steam boilers systems and the operating temperatures of mobile hydronic boilers when idling during mild days or nighttime. Install an economizer to your mobile boiler. An economizer will use the wasted hot flue gas to heat feed water on its way to your boiler. Economizers save fuel and prevent damages caused by feeding the boiler with cold water. You may also want to tune your burner regularly. Another common mobile boiler issue occurs when your boiler is not getting the appropriate amount of air. For proper fuel combustion inside your mobile boiler, a certain amount of oxygen is required. If there is insufficient air in your HVAC system, the carbon present in your fuel will be oxidized, forming carbon monoxide, which is toxic to the environment. This results in reduced heat production since the fuel isn’t burnt completely. Too much air also reduces your mobile boiler’s efficiency.
