Failure to adequately plan for the arrival of a new heater can cause major frustrations and unnecessary costs. Here are some common issues related to scheduling and preparation for installation of a new heater.
Problems often occur because of poor communications among the various parties involved in acquiring and installing the heater. Consulting engineers may design the new heating system and provide the heater manufacturer with heater design criteria and delivery schedule. Plant personnel at the facility where the heater is to be installed may need to plan for unloading the heater upon arrival and to arrange for installation. Installation may require the services of several outside contractors as well as plant workers.
