Modular boilers are packaged boiler systems that operate in parallel or series to provide varying amounts of steam.
Boilers are typically most efficient when run at full capacity. As the boiler is 'turned-down' to run at less than full capacity, efficiency typically drops. To counter this situation, a modular boiler bank with a programmed controller can improve operational efficiency over a single boiler operating in a turn-down mode, and provides a certain amount of redundancy for back-up.
III Equipment Options
Modular boilers are usually installed in banks of three or more boilers, with a variety of piping configurations and control schemes to meet facility demands for hot water or steam.
