Top tier American college chooses Preferred Utilities as their partner in a major burner and controls retrofit project on their existing (700 hp) Johnston Boiler. With the installation of the dual fuel Preferred Utilities API-InjectAire burner, the college will reduce its electric consumption on this unit by more than 75% while increasing combustion efficiency by more than double.
With the new ability to have Low NOx 10:1 turn down on natural gas and 8:1 turn down on oil along with precise draft control, and O2 trim, greenhouse gas emissions will be significantly reduced along with wear and tear on the boiler.
We manufacture in the USA and provide single source responsibility for burners, fuel trains, combustion controls and factory start up.
