Boilers, which are widely use across food and drink to provide process heat and steam, are often not receiving the care and maintenance they require to ensure efficient and optimal operation, according to thermal specialist Global Heat Transfer. This fact is adding cost for their users as well as presenting potential safety hazards, the company claimed.

Global Heat Transfer has expanded its range of services to include the installation, maintenance, service and repair of combustion and plant equipment, including boilers, burners, incinerators, ovens and air heaters. The company’s Gas Safe accredited engineers specialises in identifying potential problems in combustion equipment early on and can help firms avoid costly downtime and ensure health and safety standards are met.

Combustion equipment is critical to the daily operation of facilities food and beverage. Unfortunately, without preventative maintenance and safety controls the equipment can deteriorate and become a hazard.

Doesn​t get the attention it deserves

“Combustion equipment rarely gets the attention it deserves and the cause is usually company culture,” ​said Global Heat Transfer md Clive Jones.

“The common mentality when it comes to boilers, burners and ovens is to say ‘if it isn’t broke, don’t fix it’. Despite this, preventative maintenance is the only way to ensure your system is working efficiently and your employees are not exposed to unnecessary health and safety risks.”

Save costs

Joins claimed that for thermal transfer fluid systems, preventative maintenance could save up to 75% on running costs, unplanned maintenance and energy.

“The situation is similar when it comes to combustion equipment, although every facility is different,”​ he added.

Global Heat Transfer also helps companies upgrade existing burner systems to improve functionality and reduce costs. It also offers statutory insurance inspections and non-destructive testing of equipment.
