Clean Your Linkage! - From the Grime Newsletter
Just like the engine in your car, boilers have need of a certain fuel-to-air ratio for proper combustion. Too little air results in incomplete combustion, but too much creates wastefully heated air that gets exhausted through the flue. Since changing factors such as ambient temperature, pressure, and humidity can cause variations in air quality, it is prudent to add an excess amount of air to account for these variations. To add the proper amount of air to mix with the fuel, controls are used to introduce air to the system at the burner. Of the boilers currently in use in the United States, ma …

The New ND-Double Wall Plate is Here!!!
With our newest plate, the ND double-wall series, GEA PHE Systems has successfully combined a high efficiency heat transfer plate with an extremely reliable double-wall design that eliminates any risk of two fluids intermixing as they pass through the heat exchanger. This series combines a pair of identical heat transfer plates that are laser welded together at the inlet and outlet port holes to form a small leakage gap between the two plates. In the event of erosion due to harsh media, a gasket or weld defect due to pressure changes, this clever solution ensures no intermixing of the two non …
