January 15, 2021

As a common equipment, the demand for industrial boilers in winter is not small, and the emergence of severe weather will mean the special nature of the boiler's winter delivery. As a boiler supplier with decades of experience, EPCB deliberately summarized the problems that will occur in the winter delivery of industrial boilers:

1. Affected by bad weather, it will cause delayed delivery;

2. Water in the boiler will cause freezing and cracking of the pipeline;

3. In rain and snow, icing will cause damage to the boiler body and auxiliary machinery;

These will help boiler users to avoid problems, and ensuring that the boiler can be put into production quickly and stably when it arrives.

Common problems of industrial boiler delivery in winter

1. Affected by bad weather,it will cause delayed delivery;

Severe weather usually cools down with strong winds. Boilers transported by sea will be affected by the climatic environment, because port operations have climatic requirements, and high winds and low temperatures cannot operate, which will cause delays in shipping schedules. If the latest delivery date of the L/C is close to the delivery date, it will cause delays in delivery.

2. Water in the boiler will cause freezing and cracking of the pipeline;

Usually, the boiler must undergo a water pressure test before leaving the factory to ensure the airtightness of the boiler and ensure the safe and stable operation of the boiler. In winter, the temperature is low, the water is easy to freeze, and the water after the hydraulic test is more difficult to drain. If there is water in the boiler or pipeline, it will freeze, causing the pipeline to freeze and crack;

3. In rain and snow, icing will cause damage to the boiler body and auxiliary machinery;

In the absence of special requirements, boiler delivery are generally delivery naked. If it is not transported in containers, the equipment will get wet in rain and snow. In addition, the extremely low temperature will make it easy to freeze. Cracking the shell affects the appearance. If the electrical equipment enters into water and freezes, it will cause damage to the equipment.
