Manley’s Boiler has been in the industrial boiler business for decades, working with our wide range of clients to install, repair, purchase, and rent boilers. In that time, our clients have run the gamut, from major California hospitals to prisons. No matter who we’re working with, we’re here to help you get the job done right. To give you a sense of the basics and help you decide whether an industrial steam boiler is right for you, we’ve outlined three of the key industries that rely on steam boilers to produce heat.
Powering the Food and Beverage Industry
You might not realize it, but many major commercial food processing and preparation facilities rely on industrial steam boilers as an essential component of their operations. The function of an industrial steam boiler in one of these facilities can vary, but whether steam heat is used as a means of processing, cooking, or sanitation, these companies know they can count on efficient and powerful steam heat to successfully execute their operations. Likewise, an industrial steam boiler is often integral to the mashing process in beermaking, when ground malt is mixed with water and heated. You name it: bakeries, dairies, distilleries, and food packaging plants all use steam power to fuel their work.
Crucial to Laundries, Cleaning, and Sanitation
You likely know the drill from your home life: hot water and steam heat is one of the primary ways to treat laundry. Industrial steam boilers are used in commercial laundry facilities in the place of electrical heating, which would be inefficient and expensive when used on a large scale. Processes like pressing, ironing, or finishing are ideal applications for powerful steam heat, so laundry facilities are a natural fit for an industrial steam boiler, especially in a facility like a hospital that has a constant and large-scale laundry need.
Building Materials and Construction
A steam boiler plays a key role in the process of creating building materials. Materials like molded brick, for example, rely very much on steam heat from an industrial steam boiler in order to pressurize and harden the elements that make up the brick. Without exposure to that kind of heat and pressure, these materials would be a loose construction of sediment, rather than dependable, solid building components.
Of course, these three industries are by no means the only industries that rely on the power of a steam boiler to make their operations run without a hitch.
