John has worked on my projects as a boiler specialist. We have hired John and Lipten two times, and are in the process of developing a third project.

Both times John has provide valuable advice and service to help us to convert boilers from coal to natural gas, to engineer a new economizer for an existing boiler, and to help us develop a plan for a boiler at the end of it's lifecycle.

John's attention to detail, and timely advice has made Lipten our supplier of choice for boiler systems. John has provided complete lifecycle support from capital planning to execution of replacement systems.

Project: Boiler Conversion CFD Modeling
Client: Multiple
Scope: Lipten has provided engineering support for many boiler conversions, including 3D modeling and Computational Fluid Dynamics (CFD) modeling of the boilers. This work ensures the final design has proper air side heat distribution and velocities.

Project: Coal to Natural Gas Conversion
Client: Nexteer Automotive
Scope: Lipten converted two coal-fired boilers to fire natural gas. The work included demolition of existing grates, stokers, coal and ash hoppers. Lipten then installed new draft fans, furnace floors, support plates and a structural steel system required to support the new vertically fired burners. The project also included providing all new Burner management and combustion control systems along with variable frequency drives to control the speed of the FD and ID fans.

Project: 420,000 lb/hr Boiler Coal to Natural Gas Conversion
Client: General Motors
Scope: Lipten converted two coal-fired boilers to fire natural gas at the GM Wentzville assembly facility in Missouri. Lipten has converted many boilers from coal to natural gas firing; several of them at GM facilities. The project includes installation of new vertical-firing natural gas burners. Vertical burners were chosen instead of horizontal burners for this application to provide: optimum flame geometry for the specific furnace configuration, improved water circulation patterns, improved thermal efficiency, better overall boiler performance, avoidance of flame impingement and simplified operation. The project also includes new forced draft fans, natural gas supply systems, electrical modifications, custom Programmable Logic Controller (PLC) control systems from Lipten’s Controls Division and additional system modifications required to convert coal boilers to fire natural gas.

Project: Heat Recover Steam Boiler & Turbines
Client: Natural Gas Processing Facility
Scope: Lipten was contracted to provide engineering, project management, equipment, installation, start-up and training services for a new heat recovery steam boiler and turbine system. The equipment included two heat recovery steam generators, two economizers, two deaerators, two 2,000 hp steam turbines and associated stacks and ducting.

Project: GM - SPO- Feedwater Pumps
Client: General Motors
Scope: Project called for the replacement of three pumps with vertical multi-stage centrifugal pumps underneath the DA tank. In addition, Lipten installed three HBE Arc valves.

Project: GM Service Parts Operations - Swartz Creek
Client: General Motors Corp. - Pontiac, MI
Scope: Converted three 45,000-pph field erected coal fired boilers to front wall fired low NOx natural gas fired burners, FD fans, VFD and control on ID fans, fuel trains, extensive tube repairs and modifications, spray-tray deaerator system with feedwater pumps, duplex softener system, chemical feed system, blowdown heat recovery system, three burner management and combustion control systems, boiler plant master control system, PC-based plant monitoring system. Lipten also provided full Design, Engineering, Project Management, Site Management, Startup and Commissioning services for the systems as well as operator training. Local skilled trades were utilized for Demolition, Asbestos Abatement, Cement Work, Boilermakers, Pipe Fitters, Mechanical Rigging & Installation, Electrical Installation, Painting and Insulation. Two Rental Boilers, a Feedwater Trailer and tie-ins were included to allow for complete powerplant shutdown during the conversion
