| The first choice for second-hand
The company Georg Dickhaut Nachfolger has been selling second-hand systems at home and abroad since 1948. There are a number of good reasons for opting for second-hand system.
Second-hand doesn't mean second-rate!
The most important part of a second-hand boiler system is the boiler pressure vessel. This must be in sound condition at both the water and flue-gas ends. The critical factors are regular inspection of the boiler feed water, maintenance of the prescribed water quality and thorough servicing of the water treatment system. At the flue-gas end, it is important to ensure an optimal burner adjustment and regular cleaning of the flue-gas ducts. With this level of maintenance, a boiler pressure vessel can give you many more decades of service.
Systems subject to compulsory monitoring have an inspection book containing a complete record of their condition from manufacture to decommissioning. The external and internal inspections and water pressure tests conducted at regular intervals by a TÜV specialist reveal the technical history of the apparatus. On reinstallation, the system is upgraded in close collaboration with TÜV according to the regulations applicable at the time of re-licensing. A new TÜV acceptance inspection is conducted including a prototype test, water pressure test and internal examination. These measures guarantee the customer maximum reliability.
Good price-performance ratio
The customer often needs to invest only half the costs of a comparable new system.
The delivery time can be shortened considerably by comparison with new apparatus, as the second-hand systems are available either from the warehouse or boiler house.
