ProcessBarron merged with Weigel Engineering in 1995 to create the Boiler Technology Division, dedicated to the evaluation and improvement of existing power boilers. Through boiler retrofit and boiler upgrade projects, ProcessBarron is working to extend the life of power boilers and improve their efficiency.
Detailed shop drawings of new materials are created in-house for boiler retrofits and boiler redesigns. The fabrication of materials is performed by either ProcessBarron or is subcontracted to an A.S.M.E. code shop that has been approved by a ProcessBarron quality control manager.
The Boiler Technology Division is a flexible service that strives to meet the specific needs of our customers. Engineering projects include consulting, engineering or detailed design. For a boiler retrofit or boiler upgrade projects, the Boiler Technology Division may provide engineering services only, engineering and material, or engineering, materials and construction. All pressure part field work is subcontracted or performed by an A.S.M.E. certified and approved boiler company. This arrangement offers the flexibility of handling projects on a union or non-union basis.
Since its inception, it has specialized in boiler retrofits and boiler upgrades of pressure part changes to existing boilers. The company installed the waterwalls on Detroit Stoker Company's first traveling grate spreader stoker at Iowa State University in 1938. The company also installed Detroit Stoker Company's first Vibragrate Stoker, as well as the first Detroit water cooled Hydrograte Stoker firing wood waste.
