Rasmussen became my “one stop shop” for ALL my boiler needs. All I had to do was call and explain what was going on and then sit back. Parts were ordered in a timely fashion and Techs arrived when they said they would. Work was always done quickly and second to none! Great feeling knowing I have a company that has my back and has proven it over and over for the past 21 years.

We needed (help with) mechanical projects; welding, boiler, steam, condensate, compressed air, in different areas around our plant. Rasmussen Mechanical Services helped us evaluate our options and save us a lot of time and money to get back on line – ASAP.
Matt StrysonPlant Engineer, Hughes Brothers Inc.
I wouldn’t recommend anyone else… We had issues that other technicians couldn't get to the bottom of so Rasmussen came in and did the repair work and followed up with preventive maintenance.

We get all of our help from Rasmussen. I can call on the phone and talk with somebody and they are local.

You were by far the best outside contracting crew we have ever had the opportunity to work with. The knowledge and expertise was superior. Your guys did an outstanding job replacing our boiler's burners.

Rasmussen does the job right the first time.
Steve FeautoMaintenance Custodial Supervisor, Riverside Elementary, Oakland, IA
I’ve worked in facilities all my life, for 35 years. I would recommend Rasmussen Mechanical because of their outstanding service and reliability... If my boilers break down I know who I’m going to call and who’s going to show up.
David McAteeDirector of Operations, Boystown National Research Hospital, Omaha, NE
I would recommend them to work with other people just based on the quality and craftsmanship of their work. We went from 75%-80% efficient to 92%-94% efficient. A 12%-15% gas savings for the plant.
Conrad BaldwinFacilities Utility Planner, Kelloggs, Omaha, NE
They’ve done a tremendous job for us. Not only are they there to do a job, but they can break it down to layman’s terms, so that as an operator, I can practice what they teach me. We’ve learned from their experience so it’s kind of a win-win for all of us.
Robert StilesUtility Technician, Mars Petcare, Aurora, NE
They do more than what’s expected and we have one contact we can call for many different services.
John NikkilaUtility Technician, West Pharmaceuticals, Kearney, NE
After the first boiler, we were so pleased with their service and quality that the second one was a no brainer.

Depending on the severity of the tube leak you may or may not need to immediately shut your boiler down. In most cases, if the leak is small enough, you can continue to operate the system and schedule an inspection. In extreme ruptures however, you may have to shut the system down immediately.
Boiler carryover is when something other than clean steam leaves the boiler through the header. This often includes things like liquid, contaminants in vapor and even solids. Low pressure boilers are generally more susceptible to carryover but high pressure systems can have these issues as well.
Low-quality boiler feedwater contains impurities and gases that can damage the whole system. This will lead to a reduction in efficiency and, even worse, boiler leaks or system leaks. In order to prevent this, you must determine what impurities are in your raw water.
