PS 3

The PS 3 model is a mobile boiler room with the dimensions of a 40-foot shipping container (12.2 meters long, 2.4 meters wide, and 2.6 meters high) custom-built.

The containerized steam installation has been designed as a complete facility where all necessary components are pre-installed at the factory.

Each module is equipped with a PLC, and the three modules are connected to a central PLC located in the main electrical panel. There is the option to install a twin display screen in the control room.

It is designed to provide comprehensive steam solutions in a compact manner. The versatility of containerized systems is highly appealing to certain industries.

Containerized solutions offer a fully integrated and self-contained steam system housed within a container. This innovative design allows for easy transportation, quick installation, and flexible deployment in various locations, making it ideal for temporary steam needs, remote locations, or rapid deployment scenarios.

Inside the container, you will find a range of high-quality components that work seamlessly together to provide efficient and reliable steam generation. These components may include water treatment systems, blowdown tanks, feedwater tanks, control panels, and other essential accessories.

The system is equipped with various safety features, including advanced control systems, pressure control valves, and monitoring systems, ensuring safe and reliable operation at all times.

We understand that many questions may arise. Here are some of the most common ones.

There are no emissions other than those produced in the electricity production process. Therefore, they can be neutral depending on the electricity mix. Electric steam boilers are indeed the present and the future.

Absolutely. It is even recommended for achieving maximum efficiency. There is no problem with remote control as long as current regulations are followed

A steam generator is a pressure vessel that, along with the connected pipe network, is subject to regulatory control and complementary technical instructions, as stated in the regulations published in Royal Decree 809/2021, dated September 21st. The maintenance of an electric steam generator is divided into a part that can be easily carried out by the owner:

  1. Familiarize yourself with and apply the manufacturer’s instructions regarding the use, safety measures, and maintenance.
  2. Do not put the installation into service or prevent the operation of pressure equipment if they do not meet the requirements of the regulations.
  3. Maintain at least the following documentation of the pressure equipment while they are installed: Declaration of Conformity, if applicable, manufacturer’s instructions, and, if necessary, installation certificate, along with other supporting documentation (such as Installation Project, record of the last periodic inspection, certifications of equipment repairs or modifications, as well as any other documentation required by the corresponding complementary technical instruction (ITC) of this regulation). For detailed information, please refer to Annex IV of the regulation. This documentation must be made available to the competent authority of the autonomous community and to the companies responsible for maintenance, repair, or periodic inspections.
  4. Use pressure equipment within the operating limits specified by the manufacturer, and withdraw them from service if they no longer meet the necessary safety requirements.
  5. Perform maintenance on the installations, pressure equipment, safety accessories, and control devices in accordance with the operating conditions and manufacturer’s instructions, and examine them at least once a year.
  6. Arrange for the necessary periodic inspections as stipulated in Article 6 of the regulation
  7. Maintain an up-to-date record of pressure equipment belonging to categories I to IV, as defined in RD 709/2015, dated July 24th, or equipment deemed equivalent to these categories according to Article 3.2 of the regulation, as well as their installations.

It is known that by applying heat to water, it transforms into steam at its boiling point under atmospheric pressure. From there, depending on the desired level of steam saturation for its proper application, we may need to increase the pressure in order to achieve higher temperature. To change the temperature and saturation level of steam, it is indeed necessary to modify the pressure.

It is a unit of pressure equivalent to 1 kg/cm2, 0.98 atmospheres, or 14.50 PSI.
