Wabash Assists University with Temporary Steam

Wabash Assists University with Temporary Steam

The movement from coal to natural gas has been happening for years, and politics is hardly the only force behind it. Industrial companies, nonprofits, and institutional facilities have all seen the economic and environmental returns by converting their coal fired equipment to cleaner energy sources. Universities in particular are leading the way. Across the United States, large college campuses are spending billions to convert their existing power facilities into superefficient cogeneration plants, which extract every ounce of energy possible by utilizing waste heat from boilers or turbines. Small and medium sized schools are taking the dive as well. Even if they aren’t building “CoGen” plants, they are still converting their equipment from coal and oil to cleaner natural gas.

These institutions' goals are ambitious and attainable, but they are also multiyear projects. Temporary boilers are usually needed to supply process steam and heat campus buildings. Wabash Power has been, and continues, to support the infrastructure expansion with the largest and newest mobile boiler rental fleet in North America. As seen in this midwestern university, Wabash Power supplied two (2) mobile water treatment systems and (2) 75,000 PPH trailer mounted saturated watertube boilers. In effect, the university turned a portion of a parking lot into a fully operational 150,000 lb/hr temporary steam plant. More importantly, they were able to meet their increased steam demand across campus without major interruption. Wabash Power continues to support this university with its temporary steam needs.

Wabash Power has the largest mobile fleet of 75,000 lb/hr and 82,500 lb/hr rental boilers in North America. We also offer 800 BHP mobile steam plants and larger skid mounted boilers in capacities of up to 300,000 lb/hr. With saturated or superheated steam capabilities and pressures of up to 1025 psig, Wabash Power can meet any immediate steam need worldwide.
