Potential Reasons Why Your Industrial Steam Boiler Needs Repairs

If you have an industrial steam boiler that does not seem to be operating like it's supposed to, then you might be ready to call someone to help you with repairing it as soon as possible. In the meantime, though, you might be a little bit curious about why your steam boiler isn't working properly. You're probably going to need the help of an industrial boiler repair technician if you want to truly troubleshoot — and resolve — the problem, but these are a few possible reasons why your unit isn't working like it's supposed to.

Your Industrial Steam Boiler Has Been Operated Without Water

Because an industrial steam boiler operates off of steam, you cannot operate your boiler without water. In fact, before you hire a professional to come and look at your boiler, you may want to check its water levels. If you haven't operated your boiler much or at all without water, then simply adding the appropriate amount of water might get your unit back up and running.

If you have attempted to operate your industrial steam boiler without appropriate water levels, however, you should know that this might have caused some of its components to break down. If this is the case, repairs will need to be done to get your unit back up and running. In the future, you should make sure that your industrial boiler has enough water at all times. This will help you keep your unit up and running without additional repair issues. Also, you should make sure that your steam boiler's automatic shutoff feature is working properly. After all, this feature should turn off your steam boiler and alert you — such as with an alarm or even a smartphone notification — if the water levels in your steam boiler drop below what they should be.

There's a Problem With the Pipes

Your industrial steam boiler has multiple water pipes that help distribute water and steam throughout the system. If there is a problem with the pipes, then you have to worry about your industrial steam boiler failing.

For example, if there is a leak, then it should be addressed. If your pipes have corroded, then they'll need to be replaced. If there is a lot of scale buildup in the pipes, then these clogs could be preventing your boiler from working properly, so they will either need to be cleaned or replaced. A professional can check your steam boiler pipes and help with repairing the issue or replacing the affected pipes.
