    Boiler Rentals and Emergency Rentals

    There are several boiler options available in the rental market today. Our mobile boiler rooms are advantageous because they can survive all weather conditions, are fully enclosed and require no special foundations. Our mobile boiler rooms are also highway-legal, transportable trailer-mounted and designed to house all necessary equipment and hook-ups to supply your energy needs. Mobile boiler rooms are crucial for rapid start-up installations, quick delivery and efficient use. They are entirely self-sufficient and perfect for long-term projects where organization is vital.

    Skid-mounted boiler rentals, on the other hand, are a wise choice for large-scale projects where space is the biggest concern. Due to their non-obstructed design, skid-mounted boilers are easy to re-locate as often as needed. Skids allow for maximum output from the smallest environmental footprint. They are low-cost options that do not sacrifice quality — typical enclosures, connections and start-up processes are simplified with this design.

    We offer the following rental boiler packages:

    • Steam boilersskid-mounted rental boilers, trailer-mounted rental boilers, and trailer-enclosed rental boilers.
    • Hot water boilerstrailer-mounted rental boilers, and trailer-enclosed rental boilers.
    • Thermal fluid heatersskid-mounted rental boilers, trailer-mounted rental boilers, and trailer-enclosed rental boilers.

    Trailer-Mounted Rentals

    We offer trailer-mounted boiler rentals in a variety of types and configurations. Trailer-mounted boilers are mobile boilers that are mounted on heavy-duty trailers, which are included when you purchase a trailer-mounted boiler package. These mobile boilers are designed to bring maximum hot water and steam into your facility while retaining as much mobility as possible.

    One of the best advantages of trailer-mounted boilers, such as our 40 HP RT-40A Natural Gas-Fired Steam Boiler, is their mobility. You can tow a trailer-mounted boiler wherever you need it to go, and between facilities, if needed. Trailer-mounted boiler configurations also provide protection from the elements and can be used safely in any kind of weather. When you have a boiler issue in your plant or facility, trailer-mounted boilers provide the power and mobility you need for a quick solution.

    Trailer-mounted boilers from Smith Hughes are also excellent options for providing a temporary boiler solution when you want to avoid downtime during boiler repairs or replacements. These boilers’ powerful operating capacity enables them to keep your facility running normally for the duration of the boiler repair or replacement period. Call us today to learn more about our trailer-mounted rental boiler capabilities and packages.

    Skid-Mounted Rentals

    Skid-mounted boilers offer facilities and plants maximum flexibility when it comes to your boiler’s location. You can use our skid-mounted boiler options both inside and outside of your boiler rooms. Skid-mounted boiler rentals are smart solutions for customers who need extra boiler capacity during a large-scale project or an unexpected production spike. Their mobility makes them easy to configure inside or outside of your facility, and they offer maximum power output with a compact design.

    The mobile design of our skid-mounted rental boilers makes them an excellent option for facilities experiencing the following scenarios:

    • Space is very limited
    • You need extra boiler capacity for a high production season
    • You need a backup boiler while your main boiler is out of commission
    • You need a temporary, high-powered boiler while your boiler room is under construction

    Whatever your reason for leasing a skid-mounted boiler, we offer a wide range of steam boilers and thermal fluid heaters in the skid-mounted category for rent. Skid-mounted boilers will help you maximize boiler power with minimal space. These boilers are excellent options for any plant or other facility that requires additional capacity without the hassle and expense of extensive engineering and permitting.

    Boilers come in a wide range of sizes, configurations and capabilities. Smith Hughes rents hot water boilers, steam boilers and hot oil boilers for use in industrial settings. Browse our boiler categories below to learn more about the types of boilers we rent and their uses. Let our knowledgeable team know if you have any questions about our boilers or their applications.

    Boiler Categories

    Our hot water boilers are designed to provide buildings and facilities with heat. They directly heat facilities through oil- or gas-fired operation, and they are typically easy to install and operate. We offer hot water boilers in our trailer-mounted boiler and trailer-enclosed boiler categories for maximum mobility. Moreover, our industrial hot water boiler rentals require minimal maintenance and come in affordable packages.

    Our water boiler rentals are popular services with customers who need extra boiler capacity but desire simple operation and maintenance requirements. These boiler types can be used across many different industries and are incredibly reliable and efficient.

    We offer a variety of steam boilers for many industrial uses. Included in our industrial steam boiler rental packages are skid-mounted, trailer-mounted and trailer-enclosed boiler types. Steam boilers differ from hot water boilers in that they offer consistent high heat transfer capabilities and are able to heat large volumes of process water.

    Steam boilers rely on combustion to produce energy that is then transferred to the boiler’s water reserve, thus producing the steam. This boiler type is ideally used in situations where simultaneous direct and indirect heating are required. Browse our collection of rental steam boilers and steam boiler packages for more specific details on applications and capabilities.

    We also offer a wide range of hot oil boiler systems for rent. Our hot oil boiler selection includes a variety of packages that can be tailored to your facility’s specific needs, and we guarantee that our rental hot oil boiler systems will remain reliable for the duration of your rental period.

    Unlike traditional hot water boilers, hot oil boilers use oil as a heat carrier in the boiler system. This method allows hot oil boilers to provide consistent heating throughout many different industrial settings and is typically less expensive to maintain than regular water or steam boiler systems. Some hot oil boiler systems use both hot water and oil as heat carriers. However, only hot oil boilers can use oil.

    Emergency Industrial Boiler Rentals

    Boiler malfunctions or breakdowns can happen at any time. For major facilities and plants, this type of incident can cause major delays in production and lead to costly downtime on top of boiler system repairs and replacements. However, Smith Hughes can help you mitigate the aftermath of a boiler malfunction with our emergency industrial boiler rental service. We provide emergency industrial boiler rental services to plants and facilities in any industry that requires a boiler system.

    Facilities can need emergency industrial boiler rentals for a number of reasons. Sometimes, boiler systems experience problems and need to go out of commission for a while as repairs take place. In these cases, we offer various types of emergency rental boilers that can be tailored to your facility’s needs while your main boiler system is being repaired or replaced. Another reason for emergency boiler service includes a surprise increase in facility production.

    We also provide our boiler rental customers with 24-hour emergency boiler repair and replacement services — all performed by our experienced, OSHA-certified technicians. If you have any questions or concerns about our emergency boiler rentals and repair services, contact us today!
