Boilers are a preference in industrial settings because they are efficient and versatile. However, boiler units are not something that will last forever, and they do sometimes have to be shut down for maintenance or repairs. Thankfully, portable boiler rental companies help ensure your business stays mostly functional in these situations. You do have to make sure of a few things before the boiler arrives at your business property for placement so everything goes smoothly.
Make sure you have an available fuel source for the rented boiler.
When you call for a rented boiler for temporary use at your industrial facility, you will likely be asked what type of fuel source will be used to power the boiler when it arrives. This is because different boilers do operate with different types of fuel, such as natural gas or electric. Most boiler companies do not supply the fuel source; they only supply the boiler unit alone. Therefore, you will need to ensure that you have open access to a proper fuel source before the boiler unit can be delivered and set up.
Make sure you have a location cleared for the boiler to be placed.
The boiler you rent is likely to be somewhat smaller than what you are accustomed to having on your property because the unit must be portable. However, this does not mean that the boiler can be placed just anywhere, and it will have to have ample space for all of the temporary lines and connections to be made. Therefore, it is crucial that you discuss openly your plans for situating the boiler with the rental supplier before the boiler is delivered so you can properly prepare an area.
Make sure you have narrowed down what will be powered by the boiler.
In an industrial facility, the boiler can be used for everything from heating and hot water to providing steam for certain pieces of machinery. While the portable rented boiler will be able to supply enough power to keep some of those things functioning, it will likely not be able to handle everything. You do sometimes have the option of renting more than one boiler, but for most business owners, it is more financially feasible to shut down some functions temporarily while the portable boiler is in use. Before the boiler is delivered, make sure you have narrowed down exactly what it is that you must have in operation.
