A production manager or engineer within a large complex will know the importance of ensuring there is no downtime associated with a boiler, and that potential downtime can be avoided with the use of temporary boiler hire in advance to any potential maintenance work occurring.

Temporary Boilers for Annual Checks Downtime

An annual check of a boiler, such as a communal boiler located within a housing estate, has a number of advantages.

Firstly, an annual check can ensure a boiler is properly maintained and any potential issues removed before they become a problem.

Additionally to this any larger issues uncovered in an annual boiler check can scheduled in for repair and temporary boiler hire arranged with a crossover period at both the start and completion of the job.

Treatment of Boilers Under Repair

Planning temporary boiler hire and annual checks/repairs in advance can aid in the overall health of a boiler.

For example, planned boiler repairs can also include the treatment of a number of elements within the boiler itself as well – potentially saving money in the long term.

Valves and fittings can be replaced at a fraction of the cost of boiler failure and full replacement.

Undertaking a full service could include:

  • New pipework installation
  • Furnace maintenance
  • Pressure Testing
  • Boiler descaling and acid cleaning
  • Steam metering
  • Stress testing

Having a Boiler Schedule

Apart from planning ahead for boiler hire and downtime, it can help to have a boiler schedule in place within the engineering team.

This allows for routine checks of a boiler at different times of the year with a focus on particular elements at each stage.

The benefits here are the boiler is consistently maintained through regular checks and each element within the boiler will get particular attention as well.

Again, this allows for early spotting of any issues which may need greater work or downtime – leading to a much simpler task of planning for temporary boiler hire and any contractors needed to complete repairs.
