Boilermaker

Job Overview

Do you love heavy metal? During the industrial revolution, if a piece of equipment was large and made of iron or steel, boilermakers had their hand in it. So much so, that this career earned the name “the labour aristocracy” by historians. Boilermakers remain in demand to fabricate, assemble, test, maintain and repair boilers, tanks and other large containers that hold liquids and gases. Could one of them be you? Read on.

Boilermakers construct, assemble, maintain and repair stationary steam boilers, heat exchangers, liquefied natural gas (LNG) processing trains, tanks and vessels. They also test, inspect, repair and maintain these metal structures. Boilermakers bring a combination of welding, fabricating and pipefitting to a fabrication, construction or turnaround maintenance job. They align structures or plate sections to assemble boiler frame tanks or vats by following blueprint instructions.
