A vital link in the steam chain

Published:  10 March, 2007

The spectrum of end users for large volume steam, and to a lesser extent, hot water, is as broad as it is varied. In the main they include hospitals, dairies, laundries, abattoirs and breweries, and the whole of the food and drinks industry where production takes place. However, they all have one thing in common, the continuous need for steam and hot water; operators of boiler plant are always looking for greater efficiencies in this area.

Striving for these efficiencies can put a strain on aging plant and result in an emergency call for a hire boiler. If, However, medium to long term planned maintenance schedules are implemented, the boiler house may be required to stand down, while the hire boilers provide the continuation of supply to the production chain.

Wellman Robey is experienced in providing both emergency and planned hire boilers for anyone operating large volume steam or hot water plant. In the emergency sector it is not unusual for Wellman Robey to have its boiler plant connected and running at the customer's premises anywhere in the U.K. within 24 hours.

Wellman Robey has been providing boiler plant and expertise for over 140 years from their West Midland location. Its markets are worldwide and has a wide range of installations that go hand in hand with service and preventative maintenance contracts. It is because of these factors that Wellman says its customers like the 'one source responsibility" when a planned hire boiler is called for.

Both hot water and steam boilers are always available as static, containerised or trailerised units. The fleet sizes range from 1.5t to 9t 10barg working pressure with dual fuel burners. All units have a day fuel tank, blowdown facilities, hotwell tank and make-up tank, complemented by water treatment plant.

When arriving on site they are connected to the water and power supply and quickly come on-line to provide the vital link in the production chain.
