Plant Room Winter Preparation

Whilst we're currently enjoying the glorious weather, we know temperatures will soon drop. When heating systems are turned back on within hospitals, they can often be problematic with mechanical, steam and valve issues. So now is a great time to do your plant room winter preparation.

Mechanical issues include:

  • Calorifier bundles get clogged up or split and need
    to be repaired or cut back
  • Plate heat exchangers leak and often require new gaskets or plate packs
  • Pipework can often split and have significant leaks and therefore need replacing

Steam and valve issues due to the colder weather include:

  • Increased condensate load will quickly expose trapping problems, causing safety issues, risking damage and costing money
  • Hardening old rubber internals can cause leaks, which worsen over time and need to be repaired or replaced
  • Actuators and control loops can prove very problematic with varying temperatures and need fine tuning
