Who supplies the fuel and power for the boiler?
The fuel and power supply for the boiler are the responsibility of the Lessee. BRS also secures portable generator sets if you require power for your application. Trailer mounted units up to 350HP have oil storage tanks on board. Those units require the tank to be filled after the trailer is blocked and leveled. All oil MUST be removed prior to return of rental boiler. Units larger than 350HP will require a separate oil tank to be provided and filled. Many times a local fuel supplier can provide this tank at little or no charge when purchasing oil. An oil transfer pump may be required depending on the location of the oil tank. The trailer power requirements are 240/460 Vac, three phase and 120 Vac, control. Note that some units have separate control power transformers and do not require 120 VAC power. If power is not available, portable generator sets can be provided. Return to top

What about the water chemical treatment
Chemical treatment for the boiler must be provided for any length of rental. The Lessee must provide the proper chemical treatment program. Proper blow down of the equipment and treatment will prevent damage to the boiler. BRS can provide the proper boiler chemicals and chemical treatment services at start-up and during the rental period. Please advise when the lessee does not want the responsibility of chemical treatment. BRS also has a third party chemical treatment company that can also provide chemicals and services when needed.
