Indeck Receives Praise for O-Type Watertube Boiler

Indeck Receives Praise for O-Type Watertube Boiler

Last month, Indeck Keystone Energy delivered a 120,000 PPH 650 PSIG, 750° F, Keystone O-Type Watertube package boiler to American Refining Group in Bradford, PA.  American Refining Group is one of the oldest refineries in production in the United States, founded in 1881.  The boiler was delivered to the site via railcar, then transferred to a Goldhofer transporter to move the boiler adjacent to the foundation.  A crane then lifted the boiler over a pipe rack and set it on the foundations.

The crane operator was impressed at how easy it was to lift the O-Type boiler.   The boiler was easily placed on the foundation due to its symmetrical design and weight distribution.
Indeck-Keystone Energy completed the construction of the boiler on schedule and kept us informed throughout the process.  ARG is looking forward to operating this new piece of equipment in the refinery.”
