Rental heaters for Shipyards

American Spot Cooling - rent portable heaters in Boston, MA

Shipyards are where shipbuilding magic happens—from the assembling of the tiniest parts to the creation of a large hull. Even though summer is ending, shipbuilding takes place year round. But these buildings are often huge with large doors, which makes them drafty and uncomfortable in all types of temperatures. The spacious areas can make them very challenging to heat. This is why many shipyards rent portable heaters in Boston, MA for heating in fall and winter.

However, along with heating the space, ensuring the quality of equipment and work during the shipbuilding process is vital. Heaters contribute to this in many ways as well.

During Construction. Heat is an important element in the construction of a ship. Heaters are primarily used in plate machining. It also sets the temperature necessary for tubes, pipers and other materials before welding and bending. For this reason shipbuilders choose portable heater rentals. For Repair. Damage is unavoidable, and restoring a ship requires heating equipment to return it back to its original state. A common repair that requires the proper heating is straightening of the plates.

Maintenance. All materials used to construct a ship naturally deteriorate through time and use. Regular maintenance should be performed to check the performance and durability of the ship. Rental heaters for shipyards are available to provide shipbuilders the heating they need for maintenance works such as coating removal and paint stripping.

For more details on rental heaters shipbuilders can avail of, contact American Spot Cooling.
