The Top 5 Best Boilers for the Pharmaceutical Industry

The Top 5 Best Boilers for the Pharmaceutical Industry

Knowing what to look for to find the best boiler for the pharmaceutical industry can make a significant difference in your bottom line. Most pharmaceutical companies need high make-up air throughout the facility to promote higher quality air. During the colder months, this high make-up air results in colder temperature throughout the building, which necessitates boilers for heat. At ATI of New York, we offer multiple types of boilers for the pharmaceutical industry, including:

While we offer boilers used in the pharmaceutical industry from many manufacturers, some of our premier equipment is produced by Fulton Boilers. Continue reading for five of the best boilers for the pharmaceutical industry by Fulton.  

Fulton Edge Vertical Tubeless Boiler

The Fulton Edge has replaced the Fulton Classic, taking all of the Classic's time-proven design features and benefits, but adding some major improvements as well.

The Fulton Edge is a viable solution for both hot water and steam pharmaceutical applications. The Fulton Edge features an enhanced 2-pass design that bolsters efficiencies up to 84% by utilizing a grid of heat convection fins that the high-velocity flue gases travel.

These fins are engineered to evenly radiate heat to the exterior of the water vessel, which bolsters the efficiency and longevity of the boiler. A few key features of the Fulton Edge include:

  • check
    Efficiencies up to 84%
  • check
    Small footprint and compact design
  • check
    Flue Gas Enhancing System
  • check
    More than 100,000 boilers sold since 1949

Fulton VSRT Series Boiler

The Fulton Vertical Spiral Rib Tubeless (VSRT) boiler is one of the best options to be used in a pharmaceutical industry application. It features a new vertical spiral-rib tubeless design and is the world's first refractory-free, fully-wetted vertical tubeless boiler. As one of the newest standards for industrial steam boiler design, the VSRT offers:

  • check
    Reduced thermal stresses
  • check
    Superior efficiencies
  • check
    Compact footprint
  • check
    Novel heat exchangers
  • check
    Enhanced water management
  • check
    Inherent low emissions
  • check
    High turndown ratios

The VSRT boasts a 99.5% steam quality from a water-backed design with no refractory. The industry leading performance of the VSRT delivers an impressive 84.5% thermal efficiency.

Endura+ Ultra-Low Condensing Boiler

The Endura+ ultra-low condensing hydronic boiler is another great choice when comparing best options for boilers for the pharmaceutical industry. It greatly outshines the reliability of other competing pharmaceutical boilers and offers an ultra-compact design. With a robust range of capabilities, other key features of the Endura+ include:

  • check
    A duplex stainless steel design.
  • check
    O2 compensation tunes the fuel/air ratio in real time and intuitively adjusts for seasonality.
  • check
    Up to a 15:1 turndown in a fully modulated single burner design.
  • check
    Small vent diameters and variable primary flow capabilities minimize installation costs.

One of the key highlights of the Endura+ is its user-friendly touchscreen control panel with integrated cascade. It features a building integration function that allows the system to be BACnet configurable and communicates with the building automation system with Modbus.

Fulton Vantage Condensing Hydronic Boiler

The Fulton Vantage is a powerful condensing hydronic boiler used throughout the pharmaceutical industry. It's engineered with several features that make it one of the best boilers for the pharmaceutical industry.

It offers a diverse burner configuration and traditional fire tube design to meet the ultra-high efficiency demand for pharmaceutical industry boilers. The Fulton Vantage is a dual fuel boiler and has the ability to operate on both propane and #2 fuel oil.

Pharmaceutical processing firms can equip their Fulton Vantage with an optional ModSync touchscreen that allows you to easily integrate more than one Vantage boiler into a cohesive system. This key attribute allows for the centralized monitoring of your entire facility and:

  • check
    Customized programs to control sequences to meet the demands of the facility.
  • check
    Integrated building Modbus.
  • check
    Configured to BACnet.
  • check
    Improved efficiency and performance.

Fulton VMP Boiler

The Fulton Vertical MultiPort (VMP) boilers used in the pharmaceutical industry are designed for heavy duty applications. This convection heating boiler is versatile enough to meet an expansive list of hot water and steam applications. Known for its durability and longevity, the Fulton VMP boiler is one of the best boilers for the pharmaceutical industry.

The inside of the VMP features several heavy-walled, large diameter, schedule 80 flue pipes attached to the top and bottom heads in the pressure vessel with welding. The pipes are circumferenced by water to minimize startup time and facilitate thorough heating throughout the boiler.

The Fulton VMP can deliver steam efficiencies up to 84%. The internal pressure vessel thickness is 30% thicker than ASME requirements. At the same time, these boilers include:

  • check
    A compact vertical design that takes up significantly less floor space than other boilers,
  • check
    Reduced installation costs
  • check
    Features that work to minimize jacket losses.
