Product Focus: Hurst StackMaster

Available for all horizontal fire-tube boilers, this totally integrated economizer increases boiler efficiency to deliver ongoing energy savings, while it also decreases parts wear, both of which yield a positive impact on ROI.

These days, everyone is looking for ways to cut corners without sacrificing quality. Daily cost savings drive innovation as much as the opportunity to offer a long term return on investment. The Hurst StackMaster is one such product. Available for all horizontal fire-tube boilers, this totally integrated economizer increases boiler efficiency to deliver ongoing energy savings, while it also decreases parts wear, both of which yield a positive impact on ROI.

Acting as a waste-heat recovery device, the StackMaster captures the flue gases vented from the boiler process ensuring that the heat is used instead of wasted. In so doing, it actually preheats the boiler's makeup water. The result is that overall fuel-to-steam efficiency is increased by 1.5 to 3%, and you save money in two ways: 1) You no longer have to pay for the energy required to preheat the inbound water; 2) Parts wear is reduced. Warm intake water decreases the thermal shock to the system. Thermal shock vibrates the boiler's fixed tube-sheets and fire-tubes (causing extra wear and tear) as they contract from the sudden introduction of relatively cool water.

The Hurst boiler and the fully integrated StackMaster economizer are built to ASME Code, and are hydrostatically pressure tested. The entire unit is factory installed, eliminating the need for modification of smoke box breeching, external support steel, etc. Discharge piping can be fully assembled at the Hurst factory, resulting in a very clean, fully piped system at a lower installation cost.

Manufactured from stainless steel tubing with stainless steel fins, this economizer is corrosion and erosion resistant, and provides excellent heat transfer capabilities. The economizer itself is accessible through bolt-on doors that do not require ASME code work for maintenance and parts replacement.

The Hurst StackMaster economizer is compact and fits into almost any existing boiler room. Operational efficiency, integrated design, and quality materials make this economizer a wise choice for your next boiler room upgrade.
