For safety reasons, the production of this client, a well-known European grain processor, cannot come to a standstill. However, the external system that acted as backup for its combined heat and power system was about to become unavailable. Thus, we installed a powerful steam system at the client’s own production site that would assume the backup task.
Incidentally, in the event of an emergency, it takes at least 60 tons of steam/h to safely bring production to a halt. Callens was given the task of delivering a 100 % reliable system to guarantee that safety! We designed a system featuring three fire-tube boilers that produce 30 tons of steam/h each, equipped with a thermal degasser. The boilers are continuously on standby to, if necessary, take over the full steam requirements of the active combined heat and power system within ten minutes.
- Output: 3 x 30 tons of steam/h
- Operating pressure: 18 barg
- Working pressure: 15 barg
- Fuel: natural gas
- Combustion efficiency: 96 %
