Boilers are sealed containers in which air or water is heated for different purposes. As with any type of machinery, defects in the design and manufacturing processes can lead to potential lawsuits. Boilers are volatile due to the nature of their machinery and utilization of heat, as any type of mechanical engineering involving heating, ventilating, and air conditioning (HVAC) is susceptible to mechanical and engineering issues.
Boilers create steam and heat water for various purposes, including providing central heating in buildings and residential structures, serving as a power generator, cooking, or cleaning. While a boiler can be a very useful source of power and heating, design defect, manufacturing error, or installation error can result in boiler failure. The fuel systems, valves, piping, and other aspects of the mechanical design must all adhere to a set of codes of compliance.
Violations in rules and regulations during the manufacturing and installation process of a boiler may result in faulty machinery and safety issues, as the boiler can leak, explode, or cause fires, as any type of combustion and flammability-prone device must be properly handled and maintained. Lawsuits over boilers are often related to injuries or failure to work properly due to a problem with engineering, mechanical design, or inadequate mechanical inspections and maintenance.
