When it’s time to purchase a new piece of industrial equipment, one of the first questions on most facility managers’ minds is: How much is this going to cost?
Large scale equipment is often an expensive but necessary large scale investment. And while sometimes plant managers have been anticipating a need for new system components, other times this large expense comes unexpectedly, making it extra challenging for an organization to accommodate it into their budget.
For companies in industries that rely on industrial heating equipment, there will inevitably come a time when purchasing a new thermal fluid heater, heat exchanger or steam generator will be necessary. As a facility manager, knowing ahead of time what to expect when it comes to the cost of purchasing this equipment can help to ease your mind and help you to prepare for when that time comes.
How Much Will You Spend on a Thermal Fluid Heating System For Your Facility?
Unfortunately, there’s no one-size-fits-all answer to this question. The overall cost of purchasing new equipment and implementing a new system will depend largely on a number of factors that vary for each different customer.
While we can’t tell you exactly what you should plan to spend, we can give you some information on what will impact the price of the equipment you purchase.
Read on to find out what factors will influence how much you will spend on thermal fluid heating equipment for your plant – and find out where you can get a specific quote for the equipment you are looking for.
Factors That Influence the Cost of an Industrial Thermal Fluid Heating System
The industry that your company operates in will determine what type of equipment is necessary and, in some cases, the standards to which that equipment needs to be built. This, in turn, can impact the cost.
When it comes to customization, thermal fluid heaters and other industrial heating system components are like most other products. When customization is required, they become more expensive. If your facility requires a custom heating system solution or a piece of equipment built to your specifications, be prepared to pay a bit more than you would have to purchase a standard piece of equipment.
System Components Being Purchased
Obviously, the quantity of equipment you are purchasing will impact the overall cost of your capital improvement project. If you’re in the market for a single system component, the cost will be significantly less than if you’re in the market for an entirely new industrial thermal heating system.
Costs will vary depending on whether you’re purchasing an entirely new system, retrofitting to accommodate existing system components or just replacing certain elements of the system you already have.
Who you buy your equipment from will also impact the price you pay for a new industrial heating system or system components. Keep in mind that while the highest quality equipment may be more expensive up front, the durability and longevity of the system and its components may save you money in the long run.
It’s also important to keep in mind that purchasing an entire system in one place can benefit you as well. In addition to simplifying the purchase process, buying a complete system in one place may help you to save money long term. Find out how.
