The Kudgi “Supercritical Once-Thru boilers” will deliver 2,550 tons of high pressure steam per hour and operate under extreme temperatures & pressures. With temperatures reaching 569 degrees Celsius and attaining pressure levels of 271 kilograms per square centimeter, these boilers can only be manufactured by a few companies and only under the most stringent conditions.
