When a southern animal food producer suffered a sudden boiler breakdown, an emergency temporary steam alternative was required whilst repairs were arranged and completed.
Food production is reliant on temperatures being maintained as this directly affects production. A temporary steam hire solution was required on site quickly as output was falling below the expected level and therefore loosing the customer money.
With no possible immediate repair available our specialist steam representative worked hard to ensure a temporary steam boiler solution could be offered in a quick response.
