Stream power is critical to the operations of many heavy industrial processes. Because of this, companies typically invest in permanent boilers to generate steam and keep things running efficiently. But the problem with permanent boilers is when they break down, a new boiler installation is needed, which can often be a time-consuming and costly process. To mitigate this problem, your company may want to opt for self-contained mobile boiler rooms instead. 

What is a mobile boiler room?

A mobile boiler room is a temporary boiler solution designed to keep your business running at full speed. It’s a highway-legal, transportable trailer-mounted van or container, engineered and customized to contain the components of a mini steam plant. It’s fully-operational, providing steam and hot water. Businesses use them for various projects, but they’re primarily more useful during emergencies and scheduled shutdowns. 

Mobile boiler rooms have all the necessary equipment and the proper hook-ups to generate the steam requirements of any project. Equipment found inside usually includes a low NOx boiler, feedwater system, duplex water softener, chemical feed system, and blowdown tank. All valving and controls required for steam room operation are also housed inside. 

Most mobile boiler rooms run on natural gas, #2 oil, or propane. They typically range in size from 47.5 hp up to 1,000 hp and have design pressures ranging from 150 to 290 psi.

The main draw of mobile boiler rooms is they don’t require any special foundations. They’re also fully enclosed and can sustain inclement weather without needing costly weather protective equipment. They’re also aesthetically pleasing, fitting right into industrial and commercial settings.

Benefits of renting a mobile boiler room

It’s readily available.

Your business can’t simply shut down in the event of a boiler breakdown. In case of emergencies, you can rent mobile boilers right away, and one will be delivered to you as quickly as possible, allowing you to maintain your operations while your permanent boilers are undergoing the necessary repairs. Mobile boilers are self-contained and designed for seamless integration to your facility, so you won’t encounter any problems using them. 

It’s incredibly versatile.

There are many types of mobile boilers, capable of accommodating different needs. There are hot water and steam boilers, and there are also thermal fluid hot oil heaters. You can choose from a wide range of options, from skid-mounted, 30-horsepower steam units to 10-MMBTU trailer-enclosed thermal fluid units. There are also condenser boilers, as well as fuel oil, electric, and natural gas-fueled units should you need them.

It’s safe and easy to operate.

Mobile boiler units are self-contained, so you don’t have to manually control them should you need to make use of them. They can be maintained safely and discreetly either in or outside of your facility without the need to add extra structures. As long as you make it a point to log daily boiler and feedwater quality and do routine maintenance from time to time, then you won’t encounter problems.

It’s self-serviced.

Companies that provide mobile boiler rental are also often responsible for the service support for their units. They usually offer start-up services, installation, and training of your employees to operate the units efficiently. They also provide 24/7 assistance in case of any emergencies.
