Boilers Ratifying Engineering Firms

The famed invention of steam engine by james watt revolutionised the industry in late 1770s, the best application being the locomotive.It heralded the railways in transportation though the steam locos have been gradually phased out over the past couple of decades.This steam based technology was widely accepted by the industry, worldwide including india.But a very serious mishap of boiler explosion took place at calcutta in 1863 claiming numerous lives.This prompted the then colonial rulers in bengal council to enact a regulation in 1864 on the mandatory need to inspect the safety aspects in steam boilers.Since then this rule has been religiously practised by the industry and monitored by the nodal authority, central boilers board (cbb) that functions under the department of industrial policy and promotion of the ministry of commerce and industry.On its part, the cbb has endorsed select consultants engaged in turnkey epc (engineering, procurement and construction) contracting to undertake this periodical inspection of boilers, generators and turbine engines.This remnant life assessment of power generating systems is based on specific safety oriented guidelines prescribed by the national safety council and other appropriate authorities like the directorate general, factory advice service and labour institutes (formerly central labour institute).Based on the type of boilers, their year of manufacture and the pattern of its operation, the assessment ratifies their future worthiness under differing conditions.The boilers which operate at temperatures beyond 400°c are rated with non-destructive testing for 1,00,000 hours of the remnant life of its parts.The ministry of labour has launched a national network named indoshnet on occupational safety and health.It has been an ideal forum for pooling resourceful information including case studies from abroad.An agency conducting these surveys is manned by a team of professional engineers who are adept in allied tasks like energy audits and performance evaluation, renovation, upgradation and modernisation and performance guarantee tests.Incidentally, one such agency with headquarters in delhi ncr and its manufacturing unit near coimbatore in tamil nadu is also among the leading wagon tippler suppliers india boasts of.The wagon tippler also known as railcar dumper saves ample of time and thus enables faster turn-around-movement of the box wagons.It is a prominent epc stakeholder in the arenas of mining, material handling systems, power generation stations, steel plants and infrastructure projects at home as well as abroad.In the segment of material handling, this company designs, fabricates and commissions the following facilities: paddle feeder flap and rod gates travelling tripper stacker and reclaimer coal sampling unit vibrating feeder and screen as for the conveyor system and components, this company has carved out a nice for - belt conveyors belt feeder pulleys idler/rollers chutes telescopic spout flow divider technological structures it has also been supplying ash handling systems and associated equipments including electrostatic precipitators, air pre heaters wet ash, vacuum based dry ash, pressure based dry ash and high concentration slurry ash systems etc.
