Focus on a profession: boiler making

Do you know the job of a boilermaker?

At Steritech, the boilermaker has many missions. He cuts, welds, assembles tubes and metal sheets, etc… He anticipates the deformations that can be caused by high temperatures on materials. But he is also in charge of checking and controlling the weld that has been made, to verify that it is in conformity with safety and quality.

The chronological order of production at Steritech through the activities of the boilermaking :

At Steritech, there is first of all the robot welder who will start the production process by welding the tanks.

The pipe fitter : he will mainly pipe, which means cutting tubes and assembling them with elbows and flanges. The piping allows to make connections on the tank to connect it to the customer’s supply (example: water, gas). In parallel, he will also take care of all the tapping. The tapping allows the tank to be connected to other elements afterwards.

The welder: his main mission is to weld everything that the pipefitter has assembled as well as the various pieces of boilerwork. His objective is to make the different parts fit together, to solidify the assemblies and to make sure that everything is watertight.

Nowadays, the professions of pipefitter and welder are often combined into one job.
