What is the Boiler Index?Boiler Index Affects Development Prospects of Manufacturing Enterprises

April 19, 2022

Boiler Index: It is a comprehensive index to measure the operation of an enterprise's boiler. Its value is related to the cleanliness of boiler site management, the professionalism of boiler maintenance, the actual efficiency of boiler operation, the actual situation of the boiler and the enterprise, and the matching degree with the social environment.


Every production enterprise is no stranger to the "boiler index". The boiler index includes equipment management, cost operation, and the working status of enterprise employees, which directly reflects the operation status of the enterprise and indirectly determines the development prospects of the enterprise.


A boiler is as important to a production enterprise as the heart is to a person. As power equipment, stable operation is particularly important. If the boiler stops operating, the factory will stop production. If the boiler fails frequently, it will also greatly reduce the production capacity of the factory.


In terms of boiler thermal efficiency, the boiler accounts for 1%-80% of the product cost in the production process. For example, in pet food production enterprises, the operating cost of boilers generally accounts for about 20% of the cost of finished products. If the boiler system is in good operation and the heating system is well managed, the operating cost of a comparable boiler with poor management will differ by about 35%. 20%*35%=7%, which means that the total cost of pet food will differ by 7%, which is very important to the survival and development of an enterprise, and even affects whether it can survive.


Usually, when some senior enterprise managers or senior purchasers visit a production enterprise, they will first visit the boiler room of the factory. If the boiler operation and management are very good, then in-depth investigation and cooperation will generally be good for both parties.


If the boiler room is dirty and messy, basically they will no longer cooperate, because there is a risk of not long-term and unsustainable cooperation with such enterprises.


Therefore, the choice of boiler is very important. How to choose the right boiler for the enterprise?
