Aug. 17, 2012: Superior Boiler Works Announces Enhanced Manufacturing Capabilities

August 17, 2012
HUTCHINSON, Kan. — Superior Boiler Works Inc. announced that it has made a major capital purchase to enhance its manufacturing capabilities and allow the company to manufacture boiler products for markets it has not previously served. The company’s new steel plate roll will allow it to roll pressure vessel quality steel plate up to 1.5 inches thick and 10 feet wide. With this added capability, Superior Boiler Works said it now can manufacture higher-pressure firetube boilers, up to 600 psig in some designs, and fill a growing market niche.

“This piece of machinery, with the latest technology incorporated, will position us to capture larger-sized projects and provide a quality, special-niche product that is important in certain markets,” said Doug Wright, Superior’s president and chief executive officer. “This investment continues our commitment of making SBW a global leader in boiler and tank pressure vessel offerings. It will allow us to offer Scotch Marine firetube boilers operating at higher pressures, while at the same time improving throughput efficiencies on our current product offerings.”

Hutchinson, Kan.-based Superior Boiler Works manufactures Scotch Marine firetube boilers for process steam, hot water, and waste heat recovery and condensing boilers for hot water. For more information, visit www.superiorboiler.com.
