HOT RIVETING

The skill of putting in hot rivets is one which is no longer taught, unless you are lucky enough to work at one of the last remaining boilermakers in the country.  At McEwen Boilermakers we pride ourselves on the fact that we are still able to offer a full mobile hot- riveting service, as well as undertaking all manner of hot-riveting work as part of boiler rebuilds at our works.

We are one of very few companies who can travel all over the UK and Ireland to carry out hot-riveting on almost any site. Examples of previous Hot-Riveting Contracts have been:

  • Rivet Replacement On Structural Steel Work
  • Rivet Replacement on Pressure Vessels
  • Hand Riveting
  • Manufacture of Specialist Rivets
CASE STUDY: HOT RIVETING
CLIENT: SPECIALIST PAPER MANUFACTURER IN MANCHESTER Traction Engine Rebuild
JOB: RIVET REPLACEMENTS ON THE SEAMS OF A KIER PRESSURE VESSEL
SCOPE OF WORK
Due to a large number of leaking rivet heads causing problems on sealing the Kier vessels, we were called in. We attended site, during a summer shut, with our mobile riveting equipment and carried out the replacement of approx 25 7/8” rivets on the seams of the Kier Vessel.

The timescale was tight due to the shut only being for a few days, so it was paramount that the work was completed on time and with success. We provided all the necessary documentation prior to work commencing such as Risk and Method statement, as well as material certification etc.The work was hot but satisfying, and we have returned to carry out similar repairs to another three of the Kier Vessels that are on-site.
