Boiler Removal Services

Removing a steam boiler can be very dangerous and if you are not very knowledgeable about the procedure then you should leave it to the experts. A steam boiler is an encased container that provides combustion heat that is transferred into water until it becomes steam. When water is boiled into steam it swells about 1,600 times. This produces a very powerful and unstable force that can be hazardous but also very effective at the same time. The sole function of the steam boiler is to take water and transform it into steam. Steam boilers have a number of trappings in order for them to operate functionally.

Valves are also involved as they monitor the water temperature and regulate the water pressure. There are several components that can break or become corrupt with steam boilers and while they can sometimes be repaired they also might need removal. Because of the water pressure, the expansion, and the heat involved it can be a very dangerous job to remove. Under normal operating pressure simply opening the valve can cause a hot spray to erupt causing burns. Older tanks can be drained when they're too full, but newer "diaphragm tanks" should be drained only by qualified service personnel.
