We manufacture, installs and repair steam generating boilers. Our boiler range includes; Water tube boilers, Fire tube boilers, Gas Boilers, and Wood Fired Boilers. These come in a range of vertical boilers as well as D type boilers. Our Boiler Design allows you to maximise the use of space and boiler fuel efficiency. In Steam Boiler models, copper or brass is often made use of due to the fact that manufactured quicker in smaller type boilers.
Historically, copper was frequently utilized for fireboxes (specifically for steam locomotives), due to the fact that of its much better formability and a higher thermal conductivity; however, recent developments in technology point to use of cheaper alternative materials, such as steel, this is due to the cost of copper which makes it a less economic option. The pressure vessel of a boiler was traditionally made of wrought iron, these days they are generally made of Alloy Stainless Steel, the austenitic types are not used in wetted parts of boilers due to deterioration and tension corrosion splitting. However, ferritic stainless steel is commonly utilized in superheater areas that will certainly not be exposed to boiling water, and electrically-heated stainless steel shell boilers are permitted.
