We receive a lot of questions regarding the differences between low-pressure and high-pressure steam boilers and what are their ideal applications. As the Central Florida representative for Los Angeles-based Rite Boilers, we are pleased to announce that a Low Pressure Outdoor Atmospheric Steam Boiler will be shipped to our client, 21st Amendment Distillery in Vero Beach, Florida.
Rite’s low-pressure boiler has been providing clients with high quality steam safely and reliably for over forty years. “From autoclaves to humidifiers, bakeries to breweries – these heavy duty watertube steamers are available in 47 different models, ranging from 480 – 12,499 MBH input (11 – 300 Boiler Horsepower) for the widest selection possible.”
What makes Rite’s low-pressure and high-pressure steam boilers the “right” choice for many applications? Some of their most important features include, “…a broad range of sizes – from 11 to 119 horsepower. Lower water content steams faster and uses less fuel than other designs. Extra tubes in the convective section deliver dry 99% high quality steam. Whisper quiet operation (between 20-30 dBA at 3 feet). The burner has no moving parts and can be permanently set in a few minutes with a screwdriver and a gas pressure gauge.”
According to the Boilerman of EEE, “Rite’s steam boilers are easy to maintain; they feature complete waterside access, so it makes cleaning and maintenance a lot easier—and they’re safe. Rite’s headplates prevent hydraulic explosions. Safe + easy to maintain are great features for steam and hot water applications,” said Boiler Technician Kevin Warren.
“Complete waterside access also makes it easy to see scale and mud deposits that need to be mechanically cleaned during maintenance shut-down,” added Warren. The result of easy maintenance also means, “Better fuel-to-steam efficiency and lower operating cost over the life of your boiler investment.” https://www.riteboiler.com/
With volatility in all fuel costs, better efficiency means lower costs for any boiler room operation and application with low-pressure or high-pressure steam boilers.
A few other standard features include, “…Rite’s floating heads that eliminate pressure vessel cracks and broken welds caused by thermal stress cycling (they’re backed by a 25 Year Thermal Shock Warranty), Rite’s “superheated” drying tubes that regularly boost steam quality at the nozzle into the 99%+ range, Rite’s bolted/gasketed headplates that eliminate any possibility of hydraulic explosion in the event that safety devices fail – and you have a well designed boiler. https://www.riteboiler.com/boilers/steam-boilers/low-pressure-steam-boilers/low-pressure-outdoor-atmospheric-natural-gas-fired-steam-boilers/
Why is Rite Boilers a popular choice for brewery, bakery, and distillery applications? “A boiler purchase is one of the most important investments for a craft brewery. Breweries rely on steam to produce hot water for sanitization and to keep their precious brews at the right temperatures. Steam is also used in pasteurization heating for bottling.” https://eeeinc.net/2021/10/breweries/
Rite Boilers manufactures a complete line of low-pressure and high-pressure steam boilers and related equipment that are the “perfect pairing” for brewmasters. These rugged, simple-to-maintain boilers have a reputation for reliability and efficiency.
Jack Coe President of Rite Engineering & Manufacturing Corp. said, “We build boilers to fit your operations. We don’t expect you to build your operations to fit our boilers…We build our boilers to be forgiving in operation, water treatment and maintenance. We engineer this equipment to be easily repaired using predominantly non-proprietary parts including the boiler tubes. We work hard to provide equipment and customer service unequalled in this industry.” https://www.riteboiler.com
