Identifying potential problems in combustion equipment

Thermal fluid specialist Global Heat Transfer has expanded its range of services to include the installation, maintenance, service and repair of combustion and plant equipment, including boilers, burners, incinerators, ovens and air heaters.

The company’s Gas Safe accredited engineers specialise in identifying potential problems in combustion equipment early on and can help firms avoid costly downtime and ensure health and safety standards are met.

Combustion equipment is critical to the daily operation of facilities in most industries, including food and beverage, chemicals, pharmaceuticals, oil and gas and paper milling. Unfortunately, without preventative maintenance and safety controls the equipment can deteriorate and become a hazard.

“Combustion equipment rarely gets the attention it deserves and the cause is usually company culture,” explained Clive Jones, managing director of Global Heat Transfer

“The common mentality when it comes to boilers, burners and ovens is to say ‘if it isn’t broke, don’t fix it’. Despite this, preventative maintenance is the only way to ensure your system is working efficiently and your employees are not exposed to unnecessary health and safety risks.

“For thermal transfer fluid systems, we’ve found that preventative maintenance like our Thermocare packages can save up to 75% on running costs, unplanned maintenance and energy,” continues Jones. “The situation is similar when it comes to combustion equipment, although every facility is different.”

Global Heat Transfer also helps companies upgrade existing burner systems to improve functionality and reduce costs. The thermal fluid specialist is capable of servicing single or multiple combustion equipment from the major industrial burner manufacturer. As a result, independent commissioning and maintenance service aims to identify the most appropriate solution for specific applications, while also saving customers costs in the long run.

Global Heat Transfer’s holistic boiler service also guarantees customers’ peace of mind before, during and after the commissioning of new equipment, statutory insurance inspections or Non-Destructive Test (NDT) procedures.
