E.ON’s strict specifications for this application required a steam boiler that would produce a large amount of high pressure steam but which was compact in size to fit within the existing process area.
In addition, the steam boiler to be selected had to be extremely reliable since it would have to be available as, and when, it was needed as short notice.After extensive research in 2005 E.ON finally selected the Clayton Steam Generator System which met the specification in full and is of a proven design.
The main features that make it ideal for this application are small size, rapid start capability from a completely cold condition and safety in operation. In addition the Clayton Steam Generator is automatic and it can be started and stopped remotely.
The complete Clayton Steam System was supplied as a modular plant and positioned on the existing concrete base. A weatherproof enclosure was then built around the equipment and the system was integrated into the existing process.
The Clayton Steam System has been extremely reliable and low in maintenance. The operational history has been excellent and the steam system can be called upon to run daily weekly or on demand whenever required.
The steam installation is a credit to Clayton’s innovative approach to technology and reliable engineering.
