John Thompson, a leading designer and manufacturer of fossil fuel- and biomass-fired boilers and ancillary plant, has made a breakthrough sale of the innovative MicroGen small medium-pressure watertube boiler it has developed for the local and international industrial markets. Automotive tyre manufacturer Sumitomo Rubber SA has ordered a 30 t/h MicroGen boiler for production of saturated steam at 28 bar gauge for process heat in its Ladysmith, KwaZulu-Natal, plant to cater for an expansion that is currently under way. The new boiler, ordered in December last year in a fast-track contract for delivery and installation at the end of October this year, will be a coal-fired unit. The boilers currently in operation at the plant are three 13,65 t/h coal-fired, bi-drum watertube boilers that were supplied by John Thompson more than 30 years ago. Ancillary equipment to be supplied with the boiler will comprise a de-aerator and feed pumps, a make-up water plant and a high efficiency multi-cyclone grit collector with performance enhancing recirculation system.
