"The project was handled in a manner that always made you aware of your value as the customer. Jim (Lipten project manager) responded to all inquiries in a prompt and extremely professional manner. You could always sense that he was concerned about doing everything within his power to keep the project moving and the customer happy. John (Lipten site supervisor) did an outstanding job of coordinating the work in the field. He made the necessary contacts to get clarification for any questions that arose in a timely manner and was always in contact with the key players needed to keep the project moving. I’m pleased to be closing out my career with the State of Pennsylvania having had the opportunity to see a project of this magnitude completed without the ever familiar delays that typically occur within the layers of the State Government decision making process."

USG Galena Park mill to get new ultra low NOx power


GALENA PARK, TX, - LIPTEN Power of Wixom, Michigan, a powerhouse and energy cogeneration provider, has been awarded a contract to install a new, ultra low NOx steam generation system at U.S. Gypsum's Galena Park, Texas, mill. It produces paper for SHEETROCK® Brand Gypsum Wallboard.

Under the "turnkey" project contract, LIPTEN will provide a building to house the new 70,000 PPH boiler, its combustion and burner management systems and an existing boiler.

A specialist in ultra low NOx combustion systems, LIPTEN will configure the system to produce 9 PPM or less NOx (oxides of nitrogen) in effluent gases.

"The state's new, more stringent air pollution requirements have caused Texas industries to upgrade their facilities, and this operation will more than meet the new standards," said Jim Spencer, president of LIPTEN Power.

Directing the project for LIPTEN is Paul J. Henry, who handled combustion projects at Bayer's Baytown, Texas, plant and at US Gypsum over many years.

"The target of 9 PPM is often bandied about but seldom reliably achieved, " said Henry, "but we have the technology to do it."

LIPTEN Company (www.lipten.com), headquartered in the Detroit suburb of Wixom and founded in 1969, serves a national clientele for design, installation and servicing of power generation and cogeneration systems. Branch offices are located in the Detroit, New York City and Montreal areas.
