Features & Benefits

50 HP boilers are used in all types of applications throughout the United States. Although vertical boilers are available at this capacity, most industrial plants elect to go with a horizontal firetube boiler. The horizontal firetube boiler offers a much longer lifespan, safer operation and more stable firing. 50 HP boilers can be purchased in low pressure (15psi) steam, high pressure (150 – 300psi) steam, hot water and high temperature hot water configurations.
