Industrial Heating Systems: Your Key to Safe Winter Operations

As winter approaches, it becomes increasingly crucial for operations managers and those responsible for industrial facilities to prioritise the safety and efficiency of heating systems. Recognising early warning signs and potential issues can play a pivotal role in mitigating risks and ensuring seamless operations in these demanding environments.

Key Safety Indicators for Monitoring Your Heating System

Unusual Noises

Listen closely to your heating system. Any unexpected banging, whistling, or gurgling sounds should not be ignored. These noises may be early indicators of underlying problems, such as air trapped in the system, water pressure irregularities, or impending component failures.

Reduced Efficiency

If you notice certain areas within your facility are not heating as effectively as they once did, this could be a sign of trouble. Reduced heating efficiency might be caused by system blockages or malfunctioning components that need immediate attention.

Water Leaks

Even minor water leaks should be promptly repaired. They can signify internal issues that, if left unaddressed, may lead to more significant system failures. Regularly check for and swiftly address any signs of water leakage in your heating system.

Fluctuating Pressure

Keep a close eye on the pressure levels in your heating system. Consistently low pressure or erratic pressure changes may indicate leaks or problems with the pressure valve. Addressing these issues is essential for system reliability.

Discoloured Pilot Light

For systems equipped with a pilot light, the colour of the flame is a crucial indicator of system health. A blue flame is generally a sign of a healthy heating system. However, a pilot light that appears yellow or orange could indicate potential problems that require further investigation.
