Rental Boiler Removal: Preparing Your Unit for Pick-up

The proper removal of rental boiler equipment is a critical step when renting boilers and it ensures the safe return of equipment to the rental company's facility. It also reduces the risk of additional costs to the customer. By taking a few precautionary steps as described below, the boiler can be properly prepared for pick-up and shipment.

Drain & Flush

First, completely drain and flush all the boiler lines with clean water and open all water drain valves. This will minimize the chance of any corrosion and hard caused by unforeseen freezing conditions.

Inspect

Second, Inspect all fireside and waterside surfaces and report any visual damage, scale build-up, or refractory problems. Having photographic evidence of the boiler condition after the rental period is advisable.

Stack Removal

Next, the stack should be removed, remounted and Bolt down stub stack, non-return valve, safety valves and vent valve to trailer (same location as it was received).

  • Cover all boiler openings (stack, steam, gas, water, electrical panel, safety valve openings)

  • If trailer is disassembled, reattach wheels and gooseneck

  • Check tire pressure

  • Return all instruction and operating manuals to the rental company via the trucker or transportation company responsible for returning the unit
