Before one of the leading UK manufacturers of paper could arrange for their onsite steam supply to be shut down for essential routine maintenance they needed to arrange for a temporary steam solution.
Watkins Hire Limited were called in to conduct a full and comprehensive site survey and our steam boiler specialist recommended an electric steam boiler. The Watkins electric steam boiler was hired to heat hydraulic oil up in a tank to a constant 60 degrees Celsius to feed bearings to the site machinery while the planned maintenance on site was completed.
Unfortunately unpredicted problems were experienced on site with the pump control which resulted in the electric steam boiler not operating correctly. Watkins Boiler Hire were called back to site to offer another solution as it was critical that production continued and no down time was experienced. Watkins Boiler Hire reacted quickly to this request and while waiting for a containerised steam boiler to be delivered to site our engineers demonstrated their excellence and expertise as they arranged a temporary onsite solution.
Our customer was extremely happy with the results; "Just like to say it was a pleasure dealing with Watkins Hire Ltd, the service we received was excellent and always carried out in a professional manner."
Watkins Hire has been providing steam boilers to a wide range of temporary steam applications for over 150 years. Typical applications include chemical processing, healthcare, petro chemical, textiles, food processing, pharmaceutical, power stations and the paper industry. Our steam generation plant ranges from 400kg/hr to 20000 kg/hr.
