Boiler Makers are very vital in fact without them the industry would run because basically they are involved in the design, construction, maintenance or repair of different metal products by joining parts using a variety of welding methods, either manually or by using machines making them very significant within the mining and gas industry. So without them, who will construct these boilers?
Both jobs, Boiler makers and Welders, have basically the same type of job in the industry. It is usually very involved and dangerous at the best of times.
Boilermakers have two main tasks. These tasks are frequently engaged in oxy acetylene gas torch set to cut or gouge steel plates and tubes. Followed by gas tungsten arc welding, shielded metal arc welding or gas metal arc welding to attach and mend the cut sections of tubes and steel plates.
Without these tiny little parts the industry would not work at all, that is how vital their role is.
Black Hawk Mines Bulletin is all for the preservation and promotion of mining ghost towns that are widely being neglected across the world. We support historical sites and promote the rebirth of current mining ghost towns that still have a lot of potential in generating income and historical value.
This blog regularly publishes news and details regarding mining-sites-turned-ghost-towns to educate people interested in history and to gather support for our cause from different parts of the world.
Our group is presently working alongside other associations to keep ghost towns, like the BlackHawk, Colorado, in the map; perhaps, even to try and make them a tourist spot.
