Taking care of a steam boiler installation is not only essential, but required by law. Steam boiler maintenance in Toronto, and all of Ontario, is required to ensure a safe, productive steam plant. Annual maintenance is scheduled to perform many preventative maintenance tasks, including soot buildup removal, refractory inspection, and in some cases the combustion quality is checked by testing exhaust gas for carbon monoxide. Boiler inspections can also verify that the proper paperwork is being done by the boiler owner. As a steam boiler owner, you will have to commit downtime for the inspection, so plan accordingly to ensure you have time to cool, drain, fill, and re-fire your steam plant around any steam demands.
Steam boiler maintenance in Toronto is important to conform to pressure vessel laws. If you own and operate steam boilers, an annual inspection must be done to not only to stay in the law, but to keep your steam plant safe. A boiler that does not get an inspection is prone to many issues that will strain your boiler operators and put them at risk. Without inspection of exhaust gas, carbon monoxide emissions can go above the limit. Without inspection of the tubes, you can build up excessive soot on the furnace side, or scale on the water side, forcing your boiler to work harder than normal to generate steam. This directly leads to increased costs in gas/electric energy, or expensive tube cleaning visits. Aside from these, without a proper inspection, in extreme cases, the refractory on the boiler door could crack and fail, resulting in a boiler explosion. It is clear that a boiler inspection could save time, money, and lives.
