As we put 2021 in the rearview mirror, and look forward to the AHR Expo in Las Vegas, NV later this month, I will have to ask you to forgive me, as my train of thought turns to oft-used, perhaps overused analogies about how we play the cards we’re dealt in life. I think it’s probably safe to say we’ve all had to play some pretty tough hands the last couple of years, whether in business, or in life, but if we’re still sitting at the table, it’s because we believe in our resiliency, and our ability to rebound.
Fortunately, when it comes to the business of steam boilers, CERTUSS is one of the strongest hands you can play. Let me put our cards on the table:
LEGACY – while offering an innovative, modern solution, the CERTUSS brand has 60+ years of singularly focused German engineering development, and global installation experience as its foundation.
SAFETY – from its inception, the CERTUSS brand’s safety-driven design allows it deliver high quality steam faster, more energy efficiently, and in a much smaller footprint than other boilers.
DIFFERENTIATION – in a market of “me-too” boiler products, CERTUSS offers a unique, innovative, modular on-demand packaged solution of unmatched value in the US market.
PRE-COMMISSIONED – while many boiler manufacturers will “test-fire” combustion, CERTUSS fulfills complete commissioning of their entire sole-sourced system together, including not only the boiler(s), but the entire feedwater, dosing, softener*, and blowdown support systems, including all interconnecting piping & wiring before the system leaves the factory.
*except the largest softeners which must be field loaded
AUTOMATION – the elevated safety of the CERTUSS design allows for operational scheduling to be pre-programmed, allowing for system start up, shutdown, and blowdown via valve automation, as well as for the boiler system to be placed in a Standby Preservation Mode automatically, significantly reducing the need for operator interaction, and limiting opportunities for operator error. Water sampling and adjusting chemical dosing are the main duties a CERTUSS system operator needs to perform daily.
TECHNOLOGY – a full color HMI touchscreen, providing full system monitoring and control capability both locally and remotely, via screen mirroring, or building management software, along with pre-programmable operation; an innovative combustion air pre-heating/insulating shell design; and a VFD flow-matched, fully modulating, purge-cycle eliminating, 2 stage combustion system, are just a few of the truly innovative technological advancements you’ll find on a CERTUSS steam generation system.
