Preferred Utilities Manufacturing Launches Series of Free Online Tools for Design Engineers

Boiler Specification Configurator and Revit Drawings are now available to make boiler room design fast and accurate.

Danbury, Conn., September 1, 2022 /PRNewswire/ — Preferred Utilities Manufacturing announces the addition of a free collection of online tools to make it easier for boiler room designers to create accurate plans for their critical boiler projects. With a century of boiler room experience, Preferred has consolidated its extensive expertise into tools that end users can use to calculate sizing and energy efficiency and specify equipment for their boiler rooms.

Free resources include a full range of Revit drawings for oil pump assemblies, filtration assemblies, and day tanks. Widely used by architects and civil engineers, Revit is an indispensable 3D modeling tool that allows engineers to create designs using photorealistic drawings. These designs can be easily downloaded from the Preferred website.

Additionally, an Oil System Configuration Tool is available to help you size diesel oil systems for single or multiple generators. This tool uses line sizes as well as pump and strainer selections to guide engineers to the desired pump discharge and suction pressures. When complete, the tool produces a sample fuel oil specification for the system that complies with national fuel oil storage and handling codes.

A new boiler specification tool is also included in the online toolset. This tool generates specifications and equipment based on parameters entered by the user, and is equipped with all burner sizes and various power options as well as sizing information from major boiler manufacturers.

For more tips to help users successfully design a boiler room, Preferred offers the Engineering Handbook for Combustion and Fuel Handling Systems. Known as “Catalogue 26”, this manual is more than a parts list. It includes detailed specification and application information as well as a comprehensive guide to boiler systems, components, controllers and fuel management systems. At over 300 pages, this manual even contains educational plant engineering, combustion theory, fuel handling data and a glossary of technical terms. It is available online, or engineers can use the form on the Preferred site to order their own hard copy of the manual.

“It is important for us to share our expertise with boiler professionals across the industry,” said David Bohn, president of Preferred Utilities Manufacturing. “Making this online toolset accessible to everyone is a priority for design engineers. I hope everyone in the industry will benefit!”

All of these tools are available on the Preferred website at, and they are accessible free of charge.
