Boiler Refresher

R.J. Hill just completed a boiler refresher webinar class presented by Clever Brooks .  The presentation was focused on maintenance, while discussing specific tasks that should be done on  daily, weekly, monthly, and yearly time intervals.  Interest in this type of presentation is not for the sake of performing maintenance as much it is on what has to be done to prevent catastrophic failures.  For example maintaining a daily log of recorded temperatures, pressures, and flows is can be indicative of the boiler’s operating condition.  On the other hand, removal of the tube bundle each year and inspecting the tubes, helps determine when tubes and seals have to be replaced.  A boiler that is not properly maintained can become a potentially huge liability for the insurance carrier as well as the owner.  Catastrophic boiler failures can result in expenditures reaching into the hundreds of thousands of dollars if not millions.
