Frequently asked questions about our boiler equipment rental program.
The lessee is responsible for opening, washing out and draining the rental boiler, as well as draining the feedwater tank prior to shipment. In addition, all rental boilers should be assessed by the boiler inspector and applicable employees. The inspection report (found in the instruction book) should be filled out and returned to California Boiler's office once the rental operation is concluded.
A cleaning fee is instituted in order to reimburse California Boiler for final inspection and minor clean up costs. If additional cleaning is required, an additional charge will be assessed.
Rental boilers may undergo the plant site's regular boiler feed water treatment. Lessees are responsible for elimination of any scale that might build up during rental operation. For an additional charge, California Boiler can provide water treatment service.
Stub stacks are provided on most units. These are usually sufficient if ample building clearance exists.
Supplied boilers include a 10 psi inlet gas regulator. If higher than 10 psi is required, the lessee must obtain a gas regulator or, for an additional cost, California Boiler can supply one.
These are supplied by the lessee.
For an additional fee, California Boiler can perform the install and removal on a time and material basis. Otherwise, the lessee is responsible for connection and disconnection.
For an additional charge, California Boiler can provide start-up service.
California Boiler will make all the necessary arrangements and bill the lessee for the storage facility loading and unloading costs. The lessee must arrange and pay for unloading and reloading at the customer site. Any crane services required to unload or load equipment are paid for by the lessee.
Lessees are responsible for all shipping charges, from the rental storage facility to the operating site as well as the return. California Boiler will handle the shipping arrangements.
Only experienced engineers should operate our boilers. On site boiler operators can usually manage our automatic boilers in tandem with their other responsibilities. California Boiler can provide operational training if needed for an additional charge.
