Global Essential Oil Maker Installs Rapid On-demand Steam, Reducing Energy Cost Per Kilo by 32%

By: Clayton Industries
LOS ANGELES - Dec. 25, 2021 - PRLog -- Young Living Farms, headquartered in Lehi, Utah is an acknowledged leader in its field, producing some of the best essential oils in the world. Fueled by a growing demand for top-quality essential oils, it now has offices in Australia, Europe, Canada, Japan, and Singapore – and farms located around the world. Young Living sells its products through a global network of member distributors, so maintaining inventory and controlling costs is imperative.

"The older firetube boiler Young Living had been using at its Highland Flats Distillery in Naples, Idaho, was not nearly as efficient as it needed to be for a global leader in essential oils," said Mario Talavera, Sr., Western Regional Sales Manager for Clayton Industries.

That is due to the ratio of having to heat 3,000 gallons of water up to 70 pounds per square inch of steam pressure from a cold start or dry start – which would take up to five or more hours using the old system. Plus, the firetube boiler required an additional hour to bleed off the steam at shutdowns to leave it in a safe, depressurized, risk-free state.

"A colleague who managed our Northern Lights Distillery in Fort Nelson, British Columbia, had been talking with me about switching from the firetube boiler to a steam boiler from Clayton," said Young Living Farms executive director Brett Packer. "He said it worked more like on-demand steam and is much safer and more efficient."

Young Living replaced its single 500HP firetube boiler at the Highland Flats Distillery with TWO Clayton 150 HP boilers. When the new boiler solution went online the efficiency skyrocketed, and energy savings were significant, because with rapid on-demand steam generators they can now go from totally cold to full-steam output in roughly five minutes.

"When I reported the numbers, people didn't believe me," Packer said, reporting that "Switching to Clayton boilers resulted in a 32+% reduction in the cost of fuel and utilities per kilo of oil, which is the unit we use to measure production. We also gained significant production efficiencies. Clayton boilers reduced our operators' hours by 10%."
