Project Summary:
George Evans Corporation had a boiler failure over the New Year holiday. The company uses a washer boiler to heat alkaline wash water, which removes oil and debris from parts prior to painting. Without the hot wash inventory, production was brought to a halt. Crawford's emergency crew used Triangle Tube 95% Efficient Modulating Boilers with stainless steel heat exchangers. The new installation replaced an 80% Efficient Lochinvar Copper Fin Boiler. The installation occurred during the New Year holiday shutdown, just in time for the company to resume production on Jan. 3rd. The new installation with provide efficiency and reliability for years to come.
