Mobile Steam Generators / Boilers

Containerised units

A Cyclotherm containerised unit can really simplify the relocation of your  steam generator / boiler plant. Our trained team is skilled in building complete containerised units. The idea originated when we were approached by a mining company who requested an inclusive packaged unit. Each unit is designed as a fully operational mobile  steam generator / boiler house with a built-in fuel and water tank. The unit leaves your factory as a portable container and once it reaches it’s destination it is simply and easily connected to the fuel, water and electricity supply. The result is a fully operational unit that saves you time, money and effort. This method is becoming increasingly popular and we’ve found it to be especially useful for concrete curing. Opting for a containerised unit also eliminates the risk of damage to components of the boiler during the move.

Capacities

Whether your needs include a small steam generator / boiler or a large one, Cyclotherm SA can build a unique containerised unit tailored to your needs. We’ve built units for the smaller CE500, which delivers 235kg of steam per hour as well as the largest model – the CE2800 which delivers 1250kg steam per hour. With a few adjustments, we ensure a steam generator / boiler and container combo that suits your business perfectly. For higher capacity steam production, we use a container measuring 12 meters with two steam generators / boilers fitted back to back.

Relocating

Relocating a steam generator / boiler plant comes with hurdles that can be simplified with the use of a containerised unit. In the past, a steam generator / boiler plant would have to be dismantled, moved and then reassembled at its new location. The problem here is that the required expertise may not be available at the other end, which adds to your cost exponentially. With a single Cyclotherm containerised unit, you simply pick the unit up and set it down again once it’s been moved. You’ll save manpower and money for a streamlined process. A containerised unit also ensures that your team generator / boiler plant and all its components arrive in the same sterling condition they left in.

Applications

There are many innovative ways that companies and businesses take advantage of our Cyclotherm SA mobile steam generators / boilers. In Africa, industrial steam generators / boilers often need to be moved in the ever-growing essential oils industry. Mobile steam generator / boiler houses decrease the time needed for concrete curing from 2 or 3 weeks to just 1 or 2 days. Whenever a steam generator / boiler needs to be moved from one site to the next, a mobile steam generator / boiler house is a cost and time effective option that positively affects your bottom line.

Costs

At Cyclotherm SA, we understand the need for low cost steam generator / boiler relocation. This is why we’ve ensured that the process of using our mobile steam generator / boiler houses is efficient, streamlined and easy. There is no need to build a steam generator / boiler house and no special technicians are needed for steam generator / boiler installation. If you’re as space savvy as one of our clever clients, you’ll know that our containers can even be stacked on top of each other, making the most of your available area.

Fuels

Cyclotherm steam generators / boilers are exceptionally versatile. They operate efficiently on town gas, sewage gas, Sasol gas, LP gas or producer gas. They also use heavy furnace or coal tar fuels, Sasol waxy oils, diesel, illuminating paraffin or any of the light distillate fuels. If you want to combine the use of gaseous fuel with liquid fuel, our expert team will fit a combination fuel system tailored to your needs.

Services

At Cyclotherm, we don’t just believe in high quality products, we’re proud of our superior after-sales service too. We’re natural problem solvers and we’re skilled in installations, repairs and surveys. We’ll ensure that your steam generator / boiler works efficiently on its own, but also that it’s a working part of the plant reticulation system as a whole. Our team also knows that a well maintained steam generator / boiler is a more fuel efficient one that saves our clients money in the long term. This is why our service contract option is increasingly popular. We’ll service your steam generator / boiler regularly, ensuring that it’s functioning at an optimum level. We often find that clients who opt for our service contract spend less on the statutory inspection as their steam generators / boilers are in tip-top condition.

    Industrial Autoclaves

    Cyclotherm SA is a proud leader in the design and manufacture of industrial autoclaves in South Africa and beyond. As one of the countries most trusted autoclave suppliers, our reputation is first-rate. We’re often approached for our unique autoclave design that is suitable for electrical, dry and wet steam heating.

    What makes our autoclaves stand out from other industrial autoclave suppliers in the market? Our products have an exceptional design that makes them safe and sought-after. We’ve integrated a hinged door into our autoclave design and have fitted our own loose ring door-securing device to complement it. This device promises perfect pressure retention and a long seal life. While the door-securing device rotates, the door does not, resulting in smooth operation with minimal effort. As an added safety feature, every one of our industrial autoclaves is fitted with a mechanical door safety device. This ensures that the door cannot be opened while the chamber is still under pressure. Each autoclave is lagged with fiberglass for added insulation, and comes with galvanised stainless steel sheet cladding.

    Our industrial autoclaves can be built to your exact requirements and every product meets strict international standards. From design approval to inspection, procedures and methodologies, world-class quality is standard here at Cyclotherm SA.

    Our team has manufactured over 130 industrial autoclaves for South African and international markets and this has added to our already exceptional knowledge bank and improved our skillset. We’re masters when it comes to workmanship, and every autoclave is made to British Standard or American Standard, including South African inspection and design approval SANS 347: 2008 – (RSA/CIF 8.1 07 A 08). Each product is issued with an inspection certificate.

    Cyclotherm SA is an autoclave supplier that manufactures industrial autoclaves extensively for a wide range of other industries that include:

    • Michelin
    • Mining
