Industrial boiler rentals offer a short-term or temporary solution to meet your steam or hot water demand. If there’s an emergency or increased demand, a rental boiler can make sure your facility is running smoothly and efficiently.
We’ve created the essential guide for someone considering a rental boiler. In this article, we will discuss the reasons to rent an industrial boiler, the different types of rental boilers and how to determine and select the right rental boiler for you.
When to rent an industrial boiler
Many companies face a difficult decision: Should we rent a boiler or should we buy a boiler? If you decide to purchase a commercial boiler, should you purchase a new boiler or save some money by buying a used boiler? Devotion has worked with many companies over the years to solve this problem. While the needs of every company are different, we’ve found there are four key reasons why a company should rent an industrial boiler.
Use a Temporary Solution When You Need Emergency Boiler Services
Even though a facility may do everything right and follow a preventative maintenance plan perfectly, emergencies in the boiler room do happen. Ranging from a crack in the boiler shell to complete boiler failure, a portable boiler room rental can get your facility back up and running quickly.
At Devotion, we can deliver and install a portable boiler room within hours. Custom designed to meet your short or long-term needs, we’re committed to keeping downtime to a minimum at your business. One of the biggest benefits of renting an industrial boiler is that you’ll have peace of mind knowing the plant is fully operational when performing major boiler repairs.
Perform Industrial Boiler Maintenance to Continually Run a Smooth Operation
All boiler room equipment performs best when maintained properly, which includes following a maintenance checklist filled with daily, monthly, periodical and annual tasks. During annual jurisdictional checks, industrial boilers are brought out of service for deeper inspection and cleaning. During this time, a rental boiler can be shipped and installed quickly to minimize downtime in steam production. Your boilers need to be safe and reliable, and boiler rentals help make this possible.
Meet Peak Demand without Impeding the Process
There are times when your facility experiences demand above the normal output required. This could be due to seasonal changes, business growth and/or changes in production processes. Long lead times for boiler equipment may hinder current growth, so a rental solution can help alleviate the bottleneck. Adding temporary support to your permanent solution can allow the plant to successfully meet the increased demand. Another option to reduce long lead times would be to order a new stock boiler, which we can deliver to your site within days, not months.
Minimize Capital Expenditure
Boiler equipment is very expensive and typically has lengthy lead times, partly due to the extensive amount of planning required. Meanwhile, rental boilers allow operations to continue without breaking your budget or projected timeline. You can rent a boiler for any period of time to give yourself greater flexibility.
What are the different types of rental boilers?
Rental boilers provide a short-term or temporary solution to provide an additional steam output when a facility experiences an emergency shutdown or needs to meet increased demand. There are three types of rental boilers, so make sure you contact our experts to source the right one. After all, rental boilers are our specialty at Devotion.
