Boiler & Commercial Water Heater
Water is used in many commercial applications, and every day businesses heat water to serve the needs of their customers 24 hours a day 7 days a week.
Restaurants, hotels, dairies, Hospitals, Schools, Apartment Complex, Big Buildings, Business Complexes all require large amounts of hot water for CIP, cooking, and sterilization and lots of other needs.
W wish to find best ways to significantly lower the operating costs, reducing the greenhouse emission emissions and increase building occupant comfort which is merely possible by replacing existing inefficient boiler/water heaters.
Now if your boiler/hot water heater is 10 years old, or older, the thermal efficiency may be between 25%- 75% of what it was when it was new, especially if it has not been on an annual maintenance schedule or recalibrated as needed over time.
Most hot-water heater installations from concept to implementation take 1 to 7 days, with actual installation taking from 1 to 2 days, usually with very minimal interruption to hot water deliverability.
Today’s high efficiency boiler/water heaters operate at between 87% to 97% thermal efficiency. Simple pay-back periods of two .5 to five years, or sooner, are quite common .
Condensing Modulating Boiler Systems
Water vapor (steam) is made as a by-product of the combustion process that takes place within a boiler/hot hot-water heater , creating additional heat which will be recaptured by condensing the water vapour , and recovering and reusing its “latent heat”. the quantity of additional efficiency achieved depends upon the temperature of the water returning to the boiler/water heater, but will always be more advantageous than an older non-condensing boiler/water heater. Today’s boilers modulate the perfect fuel to air ratio based upon return water temperatures and other “use specific” factors.
Natural Gas Cost Trends
Now, quite at any time in recent history, it is sensible to exchange inefficient boiler/hot hot-water heater technology with modern technology that uses significantly less fuel. As this will be purchased at zero cost out of pocket for a limited time, a state-of-the-art, energy efficient boiler/hot hot-water heater replacement makes perfect sense.
Is your Water Heater giving you enough hot water?
When water is heated it under-goes a chemical reaction that causes the dissolved minerals (scale) to precipitate out as solids, this scaling drops onto your heating surface (in a tank type water heater) and acts as an insulator between the heat transfer and the water. Scale has a very low thermal conductivity which means it takes longer to heat the water for your process needs, this attributes to higher operating costs (scale that is 1/16th of an inch thick will cause 15% more fuel usage). For the commercial applications Water Heater Patrol offers the most efficient and effective way to heat water which is by using a split-tank water heating system.
This system off set scaling of the heating surface by increasing flow through a circulation pump, causing turbulence to keep the scale from precipitating directly on to the heat exchanger, The minerals then end up dropping into the separate storage tank where they do not effect fuel usage and can be drained easily because they are not baked on to the metal. These hot water heaters offer a ROI (return on investment) where other tank type water heaters simply cost you money the longer you run them.
