Do You Know How to Properly Prepare a Trailer-Mounted Boiler for Pick-up?

If you have ever rented a boiler, you may already know that the proper removal of rental boiler equipment is a critical step.  Not only does it ensure the safe return of boiler equipment, but it also reduces the risk of additional costs to you, the customer!

By following the seven precautionary steps below, the rental boiler can be properly prepared for pick-up and shipment.

1.) Boiler 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/or frozen pipes caused by unforeseen freezing conditions.  Remember - the boiler may need to be transported along freezing conditions to make it's way back to Nationwide Boiler.

2.) 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.

3.) Stack Removal - Next, the stack should be removed, remounted and bolted down, along with the non-return valve, safety valves and vent valve to the trailer (same location as it was received).

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

5.) If the trailer is disassembled, reattach wheels and gooseneck

6.) Check tire pressure

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

If you have questions about preparing your unit for pick-up, don't hesitate to call Nationwide Boiler at 800-227-1966.  We’re here to help.
