WHO PAYS FOR TRANSPORTATION OF THE MOBILE STEAM PLANTS?
The Lessee is responsible for these charges. Zwicker’s Boiler Services Ltd. will make all the arrangements for transportation and delivery and will pay the costs, which will then be charged to the Lessee.
WHO PROVIDES INSURANCE COVERAGE FOR THE MOBILE STEAM PLANTS?
The Lessee agrees to provide full insurance protection to cover the unit he has rented. Generally your present Boiler or liability policy will pick up the coverage on short notice.
WHO IS RESPONSIBLE FOR SETTING AND CONNECTING OF THE UNITS TO YOUR SYSTEM?
This is the financial responsibility of the Lessee and is usually done by combining their own resources with those of Zwicker’s Boiler Services Ltd., or can be done by the Lessee under our supervision.
WHO PROVIDES START UP SERVICES?
Zwicker’s Boiler Services Ltd. will start the units up and provide instructions to the person responsible for operating the Mobile Steam Plant.
WHO PROVIDES THE FUEL TO OPERATE THESE UNITS?
The Lessee is responsible for making arrangements to have fuel delivery provided. Most of our units have internal storage capacity to last for 24 hours continuous operation, so it is suggested that deliveries be made every day.
All our units burn only #2 fuel oil.
WHO PROVIDES THE POWER SUPPLY?
The Lessee shall provide the necessary power to operate the units. In rare cases Atlantic Boiler Rentals can also rent a generator of sufficient size to do the job, but this is not an efficient method even when required.
WHO PROVIDES THE SMOKE STACKS?
All of the units are equipped with stub stacks which are normally sufficient to do the job. If the Lessee wants a taller stack he may do so, but must conform to our requirements.
WHAT ABOUT FEED WATER TREATMENT?
The normal feed water treatment regularly used at your plant is probably suitable for use in the units. Blowdowns are a critical part of the operation to insure that scale does not build up in the boilers. This is especially true in the case of the water tube boilers.
HOW SHOULD BOILERS BE OPERATED?
Some of our boilers are small enough that they do not require a licensed Engineer to operate them. In this case they must be operated in accordance with our instructions and in conjunction with the Provincial Codes. In the case where licensed Engineers are required, they should already know what is required of them, and must also respect our instructions as well.
WHAT DO I DO FOR A WATER SUPPLY AND HOW DO I GET IT IN THE BOILER?
The Lessee must supply the water from his own water supply to the storage tank in the unit. There is a water storage tank in each unit, with an automatic water level controller, and a fitting available to connect a hose from your plant water supply. You could also arrange for a transfer pump to put all the condensate from the system back into the storage tank in the unit. Each
unit is equipped with a transfer pump to put water into the boiler automatically as required.
WHAT ABOUT COLD WEATHER OPERATIONS AND DANGER OF FREEZUPS?
Most of our Mobile Steam Plants are equipped with hot air furnaces of sufficient size to keep the inside of the plants warm enough to prevent this, even if the boilers are shut down for overnight, or the weekends. It is the responsibility of the Lessee to insure that it is operating properly to prevent this happening, and in extreme cases that the units are completely drained if necessary. Any damage to equipment due to freezing will be the financial responsibility of the Lessee.
HOW DO I DISCONNECT UNITS FROM SERVICE AT END OF CONTRACT?
Lessee is financially responsible for disconnecting and draining of all equipment in preparation for shipping, it is always advisable to have our technicians do the work or at least supervise it, so the Mobile Steam Plants can be properly prepared for moving.
WHO IS RESPONSIBLE FOR THE REGULAR MAINTENANCE DURING OPERATION?
The Lessee is responsible for the cost of all regular maintenance during the life of the contract, and for any damage incurred due to neglect or poor operating practices. The Lessor will replace any items that wear out through fair wear and tear.
HOW IS THE USE OF THE UNITS TO BE PAID FOR?
All invoices are to be paid in advance. You will be advised of the initial cost in advance of the unit arriving on site. Just have a credit card, cheque or cash ready when the unit arrives on site to give to our technician. You will be billed for the amount of the first rental period, either a week or a month at a time, any adjustments required to the invoice will be carried over to the next billing. This method allows us to let the units out without demanding a deposit in advance.
