Today on the Boiling Point, we will discuss daily maintenance on your boiler room. We are here with Michael Taylor, a 36-year veteran and head of WARE's safety department.
Daily maintenance is essential to the health of your boiler and the safety of your workers. Daily maintenance can prevent the build up of soot and scale, which is detrimental to your boiler's efficiency.
Without daily maintenance, boiler failures pose a large threat. Boiler equipment failures are dangerous and typically result in loss of productivity and revenue.
In more extreme circumstances, explosions occur, risking injury to the workers and damage to the facility. This is why it is imperative to have a preventative maintenance plan.
