Reimers is pleased to announce that we are implementing an improved spare parts list to accompany our boilers. Our customers will now receive with their boilers a short parts list showing the important replacement parts (heating elements, contactors, fuses, etc). This should help when the time comes to place orders for replacement parts.
Spare part is “a part of machine which because of wear and tear will need replacement”. Spare parts play a major role in maintenance of equipment, and without appropriate spares no equipment can be restored to original condition for correct functioning. If you can not afford to be down keep spares on hand.
We do not suggest that all or any replacement parts will be required for one to two years service. With proper maintenance, replacement parts are seldom required within this period. In some cases, specific items (i.e. elements) may need more frequent replacement. This is a factor of water treatment, maintenance, etc. The type and quantity of spare parts kept on site will vary with the application. Some high priority (surgical rooms & primary process boilers) will necessitate a replacement stock of heating elements, gaskets, fuses, and selected controls. However, Reimers does maintain a consistent stock level of parts ready for immediate shipment. Contact our factory Monday through Friday prior to 2:00 PM EST we will rush your part out the same day.
Electric heating elements for electric boilers are no stress for Reimers. A large inventory is always available for use in production boilers or for replacement parts for field boilers. A wide range of voltages and watt ratings allow fast shipment. Elements are always UL listed products that have met strict manufacturing requirements. Did you know 480 volt rated elements have to withstand a 2352 volts fault test? Welded flanges are ASME to assure safety and peace of mind. Each element has been pressure tested to check for defects. Reimers elements have sturdy connector pins and heavy buss bar straps to connect individual element rods. We always suggest your boiler be blown down to prevent sludge accumulation and undue wear on the boiler and element.
