Estimates & Ordering
Estimates for boilers to standard published designs can usually be given immediately by telephone or e-mail. For a list of the standard published designs we can quote for please see here. For a new or individual design, copies of the drawings will be required in order to give an estimate.
Estimates are valid for 30 days. All estimates are ex works.
A deposit of 20% is required with all orders. The remainder of the purchase price and delivery costs are payable when the boiler is completed.
Unless arrangements are made for collection ex works, boilers are normally despatched by carrier.
Standards of Construction
Our boilers are of all copper construction, fitted with bronze bushes and silver soldered throughout. They are manufactured in accordance with the Code of Practice and standards laid down by the Association of Professional Copper Boiler Makers (ME).
Upon completion, boilers are hydraulically tested to twice the maximum allowable pressure and are supplied with CCIT (Certificate of Conformity and Initial Test) - purchasers are welcome to witness this test at our factory (by prior arrangement).
Tests conform with the provision of the Pressure Equipment Directive SI/1999/2002. We reserve the right to modify any design to comply with the latest standards.
The picture shows a 7 1/4"g Hunslet 'Linda' boiler undergoing its pressure test. The pressure gauge reads 170lb/in.
