The Parker Atmospheric Gas Fired “T” series Boiler is a direct fired hot water unit. This style of unit has a burner that provides hot gas which transfers heat energy to either a liquid or a gas flowing directly through coils installed inside the heating vessel. There is a lot of flexibility when it comes to direct fired hot water boilers: they can use radiant or convection heat transfer sections; they can be configured in multiple ways; and they can use any style of furnace burner. There are also lots of benefits in choosing a direct fired hot water boiler including:
Cost Savings – They convert 100% of the fuel being used to direct heat which lowers consumption and costs.
Easy to inspect, operate, and maintain - They are easier to clean and maintain which leads to lower maintenance costs; plus, both the upper and lower headers can be easily inspected internally. Finally, they are constructed so that they can be operated by regular personnel without difficulty.
Safe – All of Parker’s Hot Water Boilers are manufactured according to ASME Power & Heating Boiler Codes and registered with the National Board of Boiler and Pressure Vessel Inspectors. Parker has built-in multiple overlapping safety features that allow direct fire heaters to stay on without constant supervision.
Durable - With its large heating surface, heavy welded flexible tube construction, and heavy insulated cabinet, this model series is built to last. For specifics on construction, check out these details on the “T” Series Model hot water boiler.
While this particular boiler is recommended for closed system building or process heating, Parker Boiler has a long list of types and models to choose from. If you are in the market for a boiler and need help choosing the right one for your business, give Gulf Steam a call at 855-497-4913.
