Why Select an "Electric Boiler"

An electric boiler is a large water tank with an inlet and outlet. Within that large tank is an array of electric heating elements. Electricity comes from the main power supply and passes through those heating elements at very high temperatures. When those electric elements are heated up, water passes over them and warms up. When the water reaches a high enough temperature an electric pump moves the water from the boiler through the outlet. The inlet takes in cool water to be warmed up by the boiler before being sent out once again. Steam boilers work in a similar way bringing in water and releasing steam.

Gas Boilers vs Electric Boiler Installation
Gas boilers can be quite expensive to put in, especially if you don’t have a gas line running already. Running a gas line is a big undertaking that you will pay dearly for. Fortunately electricity is run to most facilities. That means that an electrical line won’t have to be run. It will simply have to be wired up to existing lines and you can benefit from the boiler almost immediately. This means that electric boilers are more affordable to have installed.

Energy Efficient – Electric Boilers
Electric boilers are more efficient than boilers that run on gas because no exhaust flue is needed. When gases are burnt some waste gas is produced and this has to be released outside. Along with those waste gases that are released goes some of the heat from the boiler as well, this is wasted energy. Since electric boilers don’t creates waste gases no flue exists and nearly all the created heat is used. This allows electric boilers to be up to 99% efficient, a number that isn’t possible for most fossil fuel solutions.

Electric Boilers Use Less Space
Electric boilers can be positioned most anywhere because they don’t have a flue that has to be put up through your home and they don’t have to be set near an outside wall either. The boiler also doesn’t need a fuel tank like oil or propane units do. That means you’ll save space that would be dedicated to fuel as well.

Certified Designs for Boiler Stands by Reimers

Reimers offers PE stamped frame designs. Often boilers are stacked to conserve floor space. This requires a frame to elevate the upper boiler. Reimers uses structural steel forms ​and high yield weld techniques to assemble frames of any size. Loading is computer analyzed to assure the boilers will be stable. The drawings are PE stamped by a licensed engineer.
At its simplest, structural engineering is the practice of ensuring our man-made structures are not compromised by the ever-relentless force of gravitational pull … or by environmental and transient loads. To accomplish this feat, engineers must analyze a complex system of members impacted by a wide array of forces, and design an effective, yet efficient, system to stabilize the structure and protect those it serves

New Low Cost Blowdown Tanks

Reimers has a complete line of vented and unvented blowoff (blowdown) tanks and accessories at low prices. Boiling water causes scaling and deposits to form. The result is a less efficient boiler and increased costs. Boilers need to be intermittently or continuously flushed of a small percentage of their water. Boiler rooms need blowoff tanks to meet legal regulations and to safely dispose of hot, dirty boiler blowdown.

The treatment of boiler water is an integral part of boiler operation to control scaling, corrosion, and deposits. Boiler water treatment often leads to the formation of solid particles that are initially suspended in the boiler water. Solids concentrated in boiler water tend to promote foaming and scaling with a resultant loss of heat transfer which may result in overheating of the boiler tubes. Solids also may settle to the bottom of the boiler to form sludge. “Blowing off” part of the boiler water is a means of removing solids from the water while controlling boiler water levels.

The primary function of the blowoff system is to provide a safe means of controlling boiler blowoff water. This includes reduction in both pressure and temperature to limits acceptable for safe discharge into a sewer, drain system, or other area. The usual practice, therefore, is to discharge the water into a vented vessel where it may be allowed to cool, or mixed with cold water to reduce the temperature and pressure to acceptable discharge levels.

Discharge of high temperature water from a boiler blowoff system can present a hazard to personnel and may also damage sewers or drains. Blowoff pressure should not exceed 5 psig. Typically, the maximum acceptable water temperature for discharge into a sewer system is 140°F. Requirements of the Environmental Protection Agency, or local ordinances, may require lower temperatures.

Blowdown Tanks Easy and Economical

Reimers makes blowdown tanks to save you money. The tanks receive undesirable materials from your boiler. The boiler then operates more efficient and lasts longer. Simple and clear reasons to have a blowoff or blowdown tank? All boilers that generate steam create sediment and other harmful materials. The materials are from the water and the steam making process. No boiler is exempt. Did you know Reimers is Patent Pending on their tanks? See our webpage for details.
