When your brewery’s boiler needs maintenance or repairs, it can put production on hold. Boilers perform several crucial tasks in the brewing process, and your business can experience significant profit losses until your boiler is running properly. Rental boilers are cost-effective solutions that keep your company from faltering during that downtime.
The team at Smith Hughes understands how important a boiler is to your brewery’s success. That’s why we’re proud to offer high-quality, reliable equipment and turnkey solutions, including our incredible 24/7/365 service. Our team has the training and on-site experience to recommend and provide the products and services you need.
Every brewery has specific needs, so the model that fits your business may not be the same unit your competitor has. The system you choose largely depends on what your brewery uses its boiler for. Most boilers in breweries are responsible for at least three tasks:
The ideal solution for your facility depends on several factors. What you use your boiler for matters as well as other aspects of your business, such as your budget and the physical constraints of your building. Five things to consider when deciding on a boiler for your brewery are:
Brewery boiler rentals minimize losses when your boiler is out of commission. Avoid inactivity during short- or long-term downtime by renting a unit that allows your brewery to continue normal operations. Renting a boiler is an effective solution for emergencies or scheduled downtime. Temporary spikes in your supply needs and other brief circumstances are also opportunities to lease an extra unit. You’ll meet peak demand and can return the leased boiler when demand returns to normal.
While some business owners want to rent a boiler for a trial period before buying it, distributors advise against using rentals this way because it makes the process more time-consuming and expensive. Instead, work with the distributor to choose a boiler that you know will meet your needs.
Our extensive selection of boiler rentals feature some of the most dependable units available.
If you don’t already own a boiler or it’s more cost-effective to replace your equipment instead of repairing it, the same considerations apply to buying a brewery boiler as renting one. Browse our inventory of new and refurbished boiler systems available for purchase.
A quality boiler lasts about 30 years, so buying brewery boilers is an essential investment for your business’s future. Whether you’re looking to buy your first unit or replace old equipment, choosing a boiler can be complicated. Connecting with distributors and other industry professionals about your options and how each model measures up to your brewery’s needs can provide some clarity.
