Industrial Steam Boiler Export Transportation Precautions

June 20, 2022

Industrial boilers require a lot of effort in all aspects of production, assembly, acceptance, transportation, and installation to ensure that a safe and stable boiler system is presented to customers. Among them, the transportation of export boilers is the most easily overlooked link.

What are the risks of boiler transportation? With decades of experience in exporting boilers, EPCB expounds the possible problems of boiler transportation from three aspects: boiler shipment type, boiler transportation method and boiler transportation risk, hoping to help you understand more clearly the matters that should be paid attention to during the boiler transportation.


Boiler Shipment Type


In general, the types of boilers shipped by EPCB are broadly classified into bulk and assembled (skid mounted) types.


Generally, there are more bulk boilers than large boilers, which is also related to customer demand and transportation volume constraints.


Bulk boilers are generally larger in size, and the components are scattered in different packaging boxes, or partially naked. They are suitable for industrial chemical plants, rubber plants, and heating needs. They need to be installed and debugged at the user's location. higher;


For skid-mounted boilers, modular assembly is completed during design and production. The transportation process is safer and more convenient, but most of them exceed the limit. The advantages are that it is more convenient for loading reinforcement, customs inspection, and destination disassembly and installation.


Boiler transportation method


Generally speaking, the transportation methods of boilers are divided into railway transportation, car transportation, water transportation, and air transportation for some small boilers.


Taking the boiler exported to Uzbekistan as an example, the transportation methods we adopt are roughly divided into full rail transportation and full car transportation. A large number of boilers transported by EPCB in the past were mainly transported by steam. The advantage is that there is no need for excessive loading and unloading transfers, and there is no transportation risk such as midway hoisting. Moreover, car transport does not limit the type of boiler, whether it is small or large,you can .


If customers have full railway transportation needs, they should also carry out customized transportation depending on the volume and weight of the goods, and try to ship them in containers to solve the problem of transit.


For boilers exported to Bangladesh, we often take containers or bulk carriers. For water transportation, the most worrying thing is the weather at sea. Special attention should be paid to the packaging of the boiler to prevent the boiler from being corroded by rainwater or seawater.


Boiler Shipping Risk


1. Pay attention to the packaging.


Precise instruments and control components need key protection. Due to the long transportation mileage and large fluctuations in climate temperature and humidity, it will affect the outer body of the boiler. Therefore, attention should be paid to the outer packaging design when the boiler is exported.


2. Provide accurate shipping data and customs declaration and customs clearance documents.


In the past transportation cases, many times due to inaccurate shipment data, the loading was not smooth, and the time limit was delayed and the planned arrival time of the goods was delayed. In addition to increasing the cost, it would also affect the corporate image.


 In addition, customs declaration and customs clearance are handled by the carrier at their sole discretion. , but the relevant data and documents must be complete, clear and accurate issued by the shipper. If it is difficult to make before shipment, you can ask the carrier to process and make it on your behalf in advance, so as to avoid delays in export customs declaration and import customs clearance.


3. Local transportation conditions in the exporting country


In the case of boilers exported by EPCB to Chile, the transportation of boilers was difficult due to the narrow local roads. Remind customers to make predictions of road width and height in advance, because boilers are large and prone to super-high and super-wide conditions, make plans in advance, and can be flexibly adjusted to meet local transportation requirements.


For example, when the skid-mounted boiler is too wide, the skid-mounted boiler can be designed less tightly to facilitate separate loading. Otherwise, the width of the boiler system exceeds the width of the road, which will delay the time for the boiler to reach the customer.




Regardless of the type of boiler shipment or the boiler transportation method, EPCB will communicate with customers in detail before the boiler is transported, and formulate professional transportation methods according to the needs of customers, and actively avoid boiler transportation risks, so that the boiler system can reach the customer at the fastest speed..
