BACKGROUND

Established in the 1950’s, Unity Point Proctor is a 220- bed hospital. The 535,335 square foot hospital was partially served by a Kewanee boiler with a Gordon Piatt burner. Gordon Piatt burners are no longer manufactured and it is becoming increasingly difficult to find parts to repair faulty burners. This is a critical piece of equipment directly tied to the patient’s wellbeing.

PROBLEM

Working with Ruyle, UnityPoint Proctor was able to replace the obsolete burner with a high efficiency burner that paid for itself in 1.2 years.

SOLUTION

Ruyle replaced the existing burner with a high efficiency dual
fuel burner with parallel positioning controls and oxygen trim
(O2 trim) from Webster. The burner was selected for its
reliable, safe, and efficient operation.

RESULTS

Working with the Ameren Illinois ActOnEnergy program,
UnityPoint Proctor was able to receive $61,212 in incentives to
assist with the project cost. In addition, saving energy saves
money. UnityPoint Proctor saved:
