Before we start, let’s take a look at what are considered “repairs” to safety and safety relief valves. Repairing a safety valve or safety relief valve could involve a number of operations, such as replacement, re-machining or cleaning of any critical part, lapping of the seat and disk — or any other operation which may affect the flow passage, capacity, function or pressure retaining integrity of the valve. Even disassembling, reassembling or making adjustments which affect a valve’s function should be considered a repair. This does not include testing or adjustments of new valves upon initial installation.
Making your boiler room as efficient as possible is important, as there can be a great deal of energy lost into the environment if you don't take certain precautions. Insulating all the parts of your boiler room is one of the quickest and most cost-effective way to increase the return on your investment--and the return can come much quicker than you may expect! While efficient operation is a huge win, offering your employees a safe place to work may be an even bigger incentive to take the time, effort and expense required to review and update your boiler room insulation. Don't overlook this important safety barrier between your employees and super-heated steam within the pipes.
In case you haven't noticed, we like to have fun here at WARE. One quick scan across our YouTube channel and you'll find plenty of videos to support that claim. But the fact of the matter is, we work in a dangerous industry. And while we do like to have fun, we also take safety very seriously.
In this industry, nothing is more important than caring for your boiler system. Regularly servicing and maintaining your boiler is essential to running at optimal efficiency. With a well-maintained system, your boiler could potentially perform at 70% more efficiency.
