Superheat Watertube Package Boilers

Indeck Superheat Boilers Meet Short Term Need for Turnaround, Outages and Emergencies in Petrochemical, Refinery and Processing Industries

Why Select an Indeck Superheat Boiler?

Indeck’s 75,000 pph superheat boilers have large heating transfer surface areas for increased boiler efficiency and are designed to maintain lower furnace pressure drop. These features equate to smaller force draft fan horse power requirements and fuel consumption. This provides for lower electric and fuel costs for Indeck customers.

What features does the Indeck superheat boiler have beyond other similar superheats?

Indeck boilers are designed for either non-hazardous or hazardous location. Features include: Class 1, Division 2, Hazardous Locations, and capable of parallel positioning or 3-element feedwater / fully metered.

What else is available with the superheat boiler?

Economizers and I-SCR Systems are available for increased efficiency and NOx reduction. Economizers are used to reduce fuel use by recovering heat from boiler stack gases that would otherwise be lost to the environment. When lower NOx emissions are required to satisfy customer air permit requirements, Indeck can offer customers an Indeck Selective Catalytic Reduction Systems (I-SCR) to support their operations.

What should plant operators or engineers look for when selecting a superheat boiler or manufacturer?

Clients expect the latest safety features that meet/exceed their "Hazardous Operation Review". They should compare the fuel and electrical savings from one offering to the next. In addition, check to see if the boiler being provided by the manufacturer or a middle-man supplier. The most important thing for plant operators or engineers is to review boiler safety and performance features.

Indeck Keystone Energy can custom design high pressure boilers with superheaters to meet a plant’s specifications. For additional information see


Sample Superheat Rental Boiler Projects

Large processors and petroleum refineries turn to Indeck for Superheat Boiler Rentals:

  • A major petroleum company was having a turnaround and contacted Indeck to provide three trailer-mounted super heater boilers. This job was successful because the turnaround was completed and the rental boilers provided the required steam during the shutdown.
  • For a regular maintenance outage, a major chemical processor needed temporary steam in order pull their boilers off and repair them. This project was successful for Indeck’s client because no production was lost during the planned outage.
  • A steam turbine manufacturer contacted Indeck to rent a superheated steam boiler in order to do testing on a turbine for a client. Indeck provided the desired equipment and the tests were completed on time and client’s customer was pleased.
  • For another oil refinery Indeck provided one superheated boiler during their outage. Again production was maintained and no volume or dollars lost to the customer during this time.
