The SteamPack boiler from Babcock Wanson combines the best available technology in boiler design with very high efficiency resulting in low operating costs and reduced emissions. The boiler is designed to meet the latest European environmental legislation in terms of pollutant emission and can even exceed regulations requirements when fitted with Babcock Wanson combustion equipment.
The perfect match between the boiler shell and burner ensures reliable and efficient operation. Combined with a flue gas heat recovery system
adapted to the process (economiser
, combustion air preheater…) SteamPack boilers achieve optimum process efficiency throughout the firing range.
High performance across the power range
Steady performance is a key feature of Babcok Wanson equipment. Dedicated burner combustion head design linked to very high turndown ratios provide accurate control of excess air and minimum start/stop cycles. This ensures best possible performance across a wide process operating range.
Low electrical consumption
The very low gas side pressure drop reduces massively the electrical consumption of fans. Furthermore, options available for variable speed combustion air and feedwater drives further reduce site electrical demand and improve overall efficiency.
Robust construction for long life
Building on the BWR boiler range well-known for its Robust Construction for long life, SteamPack boilers are three-pass design and incorporate a water tube flue gas reversal chamber. Welded outside the pressure part body, this proven feature, does not require any furnace tie rods or reinforcement of the reversing chamber and gives an exceptional flexibility to the shell and furnace expansion allowing large steam load changes with minimal operational stress. This confers to the boiler an increased resistance to cold starts and a great structural strength for very long life. Being continuously cooled by water circulation the flue gas reversing chamber does not require any refractories.
Simple Reliable Operation
The SteamPack design includes full access to front smoke and furnace tubes via large easy use doors. Rear tubeplate and furnace tube access is simple and complete due to the unique water tube reversal chamber which minimises refractory requirements and complex tie rod requirements.
SteamPack standard construction includes an integrated high-level access platform for simple, safe access and ease of maintenance and operation.
Reduced operating cost
The SteamPack boiler provides comprehensive instrumentation and controls as standard including Babcock Wanson’s exclusive unattended operation modes.
SteamPack is compatible with the Babcock Wanson Navinergy system which allows ease of remote monitoring and maintenance scheduling.
