I am completely new to steam boilers and have no experience using them. My plant is looking into purchasing a boiler, however we are not sure what size we need or how to size the boiler.


We are trying to use steam at an average temperature of 350F to heat 3 to 4, 6000 gallon stainless steel jacketed tanks and maintain that temperature 24/7 if necessary. 


Please let me know if there is any other information needed to determine our needs.


Thank you.

You need to enlist the services of a professional.

Yes, you need to follow Bobby's recommendation.

Attached a document from Spirax Sarco about steam system.

Good luck
