(Question) What is a boiler?
(Answer) A boiler is a pressure vessel in which liquids can be heated, up to, or beyond, the point where they become vapors.
(Question) Are boilers dangerous?
(Answer) Yes. Heating the liquid “agitates” the molecules to the point where they vaporize (i.e. boil); during the process, the pressure within the boiler will rise; when all the liquid has turned to “gas”, the resulting high pressures can be enough to cause the enclosing vessel to explode.
Hence, Boilers Are Subject To Strict Codes For Construction, Use And Repair
The people conducting Boiler Repairs In Nassau County, New York, predominately work with water boilers for domestic hot water and heating systems. As such, their work may be less complicated than maintaining the steam boilers for a refinery’s hydro-cracking unit; but, that does not mean that their domestic Boiler Repairs In Nassau County are without risk.
Think Of A Kettle On Your Hob
Your kettle is a vessel and heat is being applied to it, so as to boil the water inside of it; as the water starts to turn to steam, the steam is free to escape out of the pouring spout; but, even with most of the pressure escaping, the lid still starts to lift off (which is how steam power is said to have been “discovered). Imagine what would happen if there were no spout and the lid was firmly bolted down; there would be no exit for the steam to escape through and the build up of pressure would not be relieved. At some point, that kettle will burst and explode into flying shrapnel.
The same thing could happen with your domestic water boiler; which is why all Boiler Repairs In Nassau County should be treated carefully and with due respect to safety precautions. Untrained, amateur DIY enthusiasts should not “tinker around” with boilers; such work should be left in the hands of properly trained, qualified and licensed technicians and plumbing engineers. You should also remember that any boiler needs a heat source (such as a furnace) and this will involve burning highly flammable fuel and producing possibly dangerous exhaust fumes – are you really qualified to work in this sort of area; which is a thought that could probably be well applied to most plumbing and heating repairs.
