No Boiler Too Complex for Boulter

RDH9A mechanical contractor came to us looking for assistance with a boiler replacement job, complete with new catwalks, rails and access ladders, for Rochester District Heating. Boiler replacements are typically complex projects, but this particular project was especially challenging since we were working against aggressive time constraints and the project had multiple components. Our customer’s goal was a safer, more effective boiler system. The challenge? Deliver a safe and secure system, on time and on budget.

 What was our pathway to success?

RDH3In order to successfully meet our customer’s timeline, we carefully scheduled each component so that our processes would coordinate with the demolition. And because we uniquely offer all the needed services under one roof, we were able to complete the project on time and on budget. It all comes down to the Boulter promise of creating the product that our customer needs.

Our OSHA-trained crews and Qualified Riggers can safely install any machinery with ease. Our expert personnel were able to complete this job quickly, on time, and ultimately deliver the safe and secure system that our customer needed.

 How did it all come together?RDH5

The end result was exceptional. Our customers were thrilled because despite the complexity of the project, there have been no injuries onsite. We implemented the appropriate measures so that their employees can do their jobs safely, and the system could be prepared to supply heat before the cold weather hit. Thanks to their new Boulter support steel, handrail, access ladders and updated grating, Rochester District Heating was able to get back to business.

The lowdown: You have to spend money to save customers’ money

“You spent how much?!” exclaimed Michele Rhoda, our CFO & VP. “One million,” I calmly repeated to her. That’s right! Boulter invested one million dollars in the latest, greatest equipment in 2016. All in the name of decreasing your costs and increasing the safety of our team and your cargo. Let me talk to you about some of my favorites.

What I tell a client when they have precious cargo …

Don’t worry. Your equipment is safe with us. We Boulter 10-Wheeler Zoomed Out 12517.jpgbought a new Peterbilt Rollback truck with air ride suspensions. This advanced technology ensures fragile equipment and machinery gently moves with the bounces, turns, and twists of its transport so nothing gets hurt. We purchased this automatic flatbed to replace our 17-year-old one that had 200,000 miles on it. She served us well, but it was time for an upgrade.

 What people are talking about …

A custom-fit utility truck that stays with our fabrication team all the time. It holds our specialty tools and equipment, allowing the team to go directly from site-to-site without stopping at the office, saving you time and money. Even better, with the additional trailer, the truck can tow up to 10,000 lbs. This gives us some flexibility to reduce our equipment needs and your costs even further.

 Why I’m giving a high-five to our new lowboy trailer…

This 55-ton, low-profile trailer can haul extra-heavy and tall equipment with weights up to 110,000 lbs. and heights of up to 12 feet. The trailer can even be detached hydraulically for quick and easy loading and unloading. Plus, the air ride suspension makes for a smooth, safe transport for your machinery and equipment.

 How I plan to not lift a finger for awhile …20170324_115642.jpg

 We bought three Hoist Liftruck forklifts, and the largest doubles our lifting capacity from
30,000 lbs. to 60,000 lbs. In the past, we’d often need a crane for these really heavy jobs. But with these forklifts, we can lift more weight with less equipment and team members, meaning we cost you less. All three forklifts have advanced safety features, too.

The FR Series 15/25 and 40/60 give us the flexibility of two fork trucks with one piece of equipment. With just the push of a button, these machines open up to extend their counterweights and center of gravity, giving them increased lift capacity. For the ultimate versatility, the 40/60 even comes with a hydraulically powered, multi-stage telescopic boom that can lift objects up to 26 feet in the air. Both trucks are easily maneuverable, even in tight spaces, and incredibly light, allowing for easy transportation.20170301_113225_001

Our new 18-ton pneumatic P360 runs on a high-performance Cummins diesel engine and is durable enough to withstand rugged outdoor environments and road conditions. The wide, open mast and unique low-profile counterweight allows the operator to see unobstructed views in all directions.

All of this technology isn’t just for our fun, but to better serve you—our customers. You’ve got my promise that we’ll always show up to your project’s site with the most advanced equipment to get the job done right. Interested in learning more? Check out some other pieces of our equipment.
