UM-Dearborn needed to replace its three large steam boilers. The challenge was to design a new system for the 1950s-era boiler room when three-pass boilers were standard. Cleaver-Brooks engineered a 600-hp burner to fit inside a CBJT 700-hp shorter-length shell.
Many different terms or names are used to describe steam in various applications and industries. This inconsistent nomenclature can be confusing, resulting in steam not being described correctly, or it being improperly used in a specific application.
