The Model HVJ high voltage jet electrode boiler is truly one of the most remarkable innovations. It’s particularly well-suited as an auxiliary boiler for power generation facilities and central steam plants, or as a pony boiler for industrial process expansions or additions. It provides virtually instant steam when needed, with the fastest response in the industry.
With no products of combustion, the Model HVJ high voltage jet electrode boiler is a safe and environmentally friendly option. In some areas where the air quality is not in compliance with EPA standards, it may be the only viable option.
Features & Benefits
Superior steam quality (99.8% pure)
High output capacity
The industry’s best actual operating efficiency (99.7% vs. 65% for fossil-fuel boilers)
Lower total cost of ownership than nearly any fossil-fuel fired boiler due to its lower installed capital cost, insurance rates, personnel costs, maintenance costs, reduced energy costs, and lower water treatment costs
Can dramatically reduce energy costs using off-peak power
A VFD controlled circulation pump continuously modulates steam output to match the process steam demand, delivering 100:1 turndown for near infinite modulation
The vessel’s operating temperature is never higher than the temperature of the steam it generates
Can ramp from standby to full output in minutes or even seconds,
When not generating steam, there is no flue allowing heat to escape
The low water volume (20% of the amount in a comparable fossil-fuel fired boiler) reduces the amount of energy wasted to keep it in a standby condition
In a low water condition, the circulation pump has no water available to generate steam, making it ‘fail-safe’ in low water
Requires no vent stack, breeching or combustion air louvers
No Title V EPA permit is required for installation because there are no local emissions
Lower personnel costs because most jurisdictions do not require a dedicated boiler operator on staff 24/7 to look after the boiler
The Model HVJ high voltage jet electrode boiler is configured to operate from one of three different 3-phase power supplies: 4160 volt, 6900 volt, and 13.2 KV, and its standard operating pressures range from 100 psi to 400 psi; for higher pressure models consult factory.
