Aldrich Steam Boilers

Aldrich Classic firetube boiler fitted with a Weishaupt burner

Here at Raven, we have been looking for a manufacturer that specializes in steam boilers for low pressure applications. Luckily, we found Aldrich, who does just that and more!

Established in 1936, Aldrich Company serves the global market as a premier manufacturer of firetube boilers and water heaters. Aldrich Company researches, engineers, manufactures and sells quality boilers and water heaters for a wide range of commercial and industrial applications.

The Classic Series 3-pass horizontal “scotch box” firetube boiler is available in sizes from 12 to 250 horsepower, with configurations as either low-pressure steam (15 PSI) or up to 80 PSI hot water boilers. The design is a hybrid between a 3-pass scotch marine firetube and a firebox boiler. It has the slim profile, easy maintenance, and economical cost of a firebox coupled with the durability, efficiency, and high-water volume of a horizontal firetube. Aldrich offers extra-thick flared tubes and tube sheets, making it a workhorse that is built to last for generations. This type of boiler is especially well suited in breweries, distilleries, and agricultural applications.

Fulton Service Training

In August, Nic Sun visited The Fulton Companies headquarters in Pulaski, New York to complete a 4-day service course focusing on the Vantage condensing boiler line. Although the program is normally restricted to gas-fitting technicians, Nic’s background in engineering kept him fully engaged. He gives kudos to the course instructors for giving such thorough presentations and encouraging him to get his hands dirty in the test lab.

His favorite part was the detailed tutorial on the Siemens LMV36 combustion control system, which is also used on Weishaupt burners. He got to tinker with the simulation module, learning how to operate, configure, and troubleshoot issues correctly. For his final exam, he went through a complete Vantage start-up procedure. “Nothing beats hands-on experience, whether you’re in sales, engineering, technical support, or all of the above. I have always enjoyed playing with fire!” Nic says with a wink and a smile.

Linna Heads to Fulton

Last month, Linna attended Fulton’s Sales Training in Pulaski, New York. This training covered Fulton’s hot water boilers, steam boilers, and thermal fluid boilers over the course of three days. Linna had very high expectations going into training, and Fulton did not disappoint!

Along with building boilers Rugged, Robust, and Reliable, it will not be long until the Fulton name becomes synonymous with innovation. Even after producing boilers that are known for their quality, they continue to find ways to make their boilers even more Rugged, Robust, and Reliable. During her training, Linna had the opportunity to see Fulton’s new Endura+ (Condensing Hydronic Boiler) and VSRT (Vertical Spiral Rib Tubeless Steam Boiler). Together, these products have no less than 50 patents pending worldwide!

Although seeing the construction of the boilers was a very interesting part of the training, Linna was most impressed with the team they have at Fulton. Every individual she met shared two common attributes: They were eager to learn, and always ready to share their knowledge. With a team that values continuous growth and has the ability to effectively pass on their wealth of knowledge, it is no wonder Fulton is able to attract and retain bright individuals capable of keeping Fulton the most innovative company in the boiler industry.
