Modernizing NYC’s Psychiatric Facility: A Boiler Control Retrofit Story

In the world of ever-evolving codes and regulations, it’s a must for industries to stay up to date. And this is particularly important for vital places like that psychiatric facility right in New York City. Recently, this facility experienced a transformative retrofit, replacing its old Cleaver Brooks boiler control panels with the advanced and intuitive BurnerMate Universal (BMU) panels with the help of Analytical and Combustion Systems and Preferred!

The Need for Transformation:

As the boiler room aged and new regulations required upgrades in New York boiler rooms, it became apparent that certain elements of the facility’s infrastructure would need replacing. The four aging individual boiler panels, alongside the boiler plant master controller (not visible in the accompanying picture) could no longer function and a the time had come for an even further change—a change that promised not only better automation and safety, but also efficiency.

The Power of Opacity Monitoring:

One of the standout features of the BMU is its ability to display opacity in the stack. This seemingly small addition wields immense power in reducing excessive smoke, a common issue plaguing older oil-fired burners. By optimizing combustion, the BMU ensures that the facility operates cleanly and in an environmentally responsible manner.

Automation at its Finest:

The BMU brings a new level of automation to the facility’s operations. With precise firing rate controls and a fully automated system, the plant can now focus its attention on other critical tasks, including ongoing construction projects, with the knowledge that they are mitigating energy costs and running safely.

Collaboration for Success:

The successful completion of this ambitious project owes much to the collaboration between the skilled service technicians from ACS and Preferred. Their combined expertise ensured that the retrofit proceeded smoothly and efficiently, ultimately leading to a highly satisfied customer.

This retrofit project exemplifies the ongoing commitment of industries to embrace innovation and adapt to the evolving needs of our modern world. It’s a testament to the transformative power of technology and the dedication of professionals to deliver excellence.

In this exciting chapter of progress, the NYC psychiatric facility has not just embraced the new but has also set a benchmark for others to follow. The future looks brighter than ever as we continue to leverage cutting-edge solutions like the BurnerMate Universal (BMU) to create safer, more efficient, and environmentally conscious facilities. Out with the old, and in with the new—a resounding call to keep pushing boundaries and striving for excellence.
