Reasons Why Your Company May Need A Mobile Boiler

Laurie Washington

Boilers play a very critical part in the day-to-day running of many industries as they provide the steam required for various heating applications. They are used for heating water, generating electricity, sanitation, and other functions. Companies that deal with food, paper, oil, chemicals, power, water, and metal processing depend on boilers in their operations. Industrial boilers can be overpowered or break down like any other machine, requiring you to get a substitute: a mobile boiler.

What is a mobile boiler?

Mobile boilers or rental boilers are transportable trailer-mounted vans or containers carrying boilers that your company can hire if there are issues with your permanently installed industrial boilers. They provide supplemental steam power during emergencies ensuring your industrial processes continue to run. 

Why should you get a mobile boiler?

The following are some of the reasons why you should get a rental boiler:

1. Easy to install during emergencies

Boilers play a big part in the smooth running of your industrial process, and breakdown may stop all activities. For instance, if you rely on a  boiler for power supply, an unexpected malfunction means a stop to all your manufacturing process resulting in losses. Replacing a boiler with a new one may take time buying and installing. Additionally, your boiler may need repairing rather than replacing. Mobile boilers can be installed in a short time, ensuring your production process continues to run while you fix your broken boiler.

2. Increased steam load demands

At some point, your production process may require higher amounts of steam power than your boiler can produce, thus overpowering it. This usually happens during peak seasons when there is a high demand for your products hence an increase in production. If your boiler is overwhelmed, it may slow down the production process or break down completely. You may need a rental boiler for additional steam power during peak periods of your production process.

3. During scheduled maintenance operations

Companies conduct repairs and maintenance regularly to ensure their equipment is in the best condition. The same applies to boilers too. Maintenance operation on your boiler means you have to stop all your activities until the process is complete. Sometimes this takes days or weeks, depending on the size of your industrial boiler. You can get a mobile boiler during this period to ensure that your industrial process continues to run while your permanent boiler is under maintenance.

4. Limited Budget

Your industrial boiler may break down at a time when your budget is very tight, and you cannot buy a new boiler immediately. Industrial boilers are costly, and you might require time before raising enough capital to buy a new one. You can get a rental boiler to continue your production process while gathering enough money to buy a new boiler.
