Benefits – E Models

Steam Generator Benefits - High efficiency

Very high efficiency is the most obvious benefit that comes from small size and low heat loss. Heat flow is upwards - in the opposite direction to the water flow - and this optimises heat transfer and results in low running costs.

Steam Boiler Benefits - Rapid Start

Start up from a completely cold condition is five minutes. Warm up fuel is minimised and the unit can be switched off when not required. The Clayton Steam Generator is therefore also ideal when used as an auxiliary or standby boiler.

Steam Generator Benefits - High Quality Steam

Steam quality is the best available from any type of boiler and is at least 99.5% dry saturated at all steam loads. This reduces the amount of water and impurities going into the steam line and ensures higher energy content of the process steam.

Steam Boiler Benefits - Low Blowdown

Blowdown which is necessary to prevent the build up of impurities in all types of boiler is extremely small with the Clayton design. This saves fuel, saves chemicals and saves water.

Steam Generator Benefits - Unattended Operation

Because of the inherent safety and automatic systems, all Clayton Steam Generators can run without operator attendance for up to a period of one week if the unattended control option is included.

Steam Boiler Benefits - Small Size

The compact size means that minimal space is required for a complete boiler house. Building costs are reduced and a Clayton system can easily be fitted into the available area. The light weight even allows location on an upper floor level.

Steam Generator Benefits - Safety

It is not possible to have a steam explosion. This is a danger associated with low water level in other types of boiler that store a large volume of hot water. The Clayton Steam Generator does not have a water level and does not store a large volume of water.

Steam Boiler Benefits - Rapid Response

Extremely rapid response to changes in the demand for steam is inherent in the Clayton forced circulation design. A Clayton Steam Generator will speedily ramp up and run at maximum steam output continuously without faltering.

Steam Generator Benefits - Fully Automatic

The rapid start and rapid response can be controlled automatically. All Clayton systems can be started by a single switch locally or remotely just like any modern advanced machinery if the automatic start option is selected.

Steam Boiler Benefits - Low Maintenance

One of the practical benefits of the simple design concept is that maintenance requirements are minimal. The technology has been developed and improved over many years to make the Clayton Steam Generator the most reliable steam boiler available today.
