Logistics associated to Retubes

Logistics need to come into play. Manpower considerations to complete on time and within budget are critical. Experienced lead hands in all aspects of tube removal and rolling new tubes. You need to confirm what power, pneumatic or electric is available. What are the boiler room burning and welding procedures? Level of third-party liability required. Availability of the new tubes, tube OD and BWG and lead time to get them on-site. In a sub-basement, do we need confined space procedures in place? Confirm welder’s qualifications are up to date. Who will be shutting down the boiler? Who supplies the technician for this? Confirmation with the stationary/steam engineer will confirm who has this responsibility.
