Saturday Gas and Oil Boilers with Repairs while the Sun Shines

A long day of gas and oil boilers, both installation and repairs today, this Saturday has been punishing and rewarding at the same time. We at Ability have carried out all the gas and oil boiler repairs that were booked in. Therefore we have the satisfaction that all the customers will have working boilers and hot water tanks, toilets flushing, overflows no longer dripping and radiators flowing to all the plumbing needs booked in.

Gas and Oil Boilers

Tom has been especially busy, plumbing in Sevenoaks this morning and fitting gas pipework in East Grinstead this afternoon. Terry has completed several boiler servicing calls today in Sevenoaks and as always any small repair work is carried out at the same time.

Central Heating Repairs

Elaine has managed the phones today and we have booked in several quotations for this coming week, things have really started to get busy the last few days in the plumbing and heating world.

The topic today is on soldering and here is a brief description of how it works.

Soldering is defined as “the joining of metals by a fusion of alloys which have relatively low melting points”. In other words, you use a metal that has a low melting point to adhere the surfaces to be soldered together. Consider that soldering is more like gluing with molten metal, unlike welding where the base metals are actually melted and combined. Soldering is also a must-have skill for all sorts of electrical and electronics work. It is also a skill that must be taught correctly and developed with practice.

This tutorial will cover the most common types of soldering required for electronics work. This includes soldering components to printed circuit boards and soldering a spliced wire joint.

Soldering Repairs and Equipment

The Soldering Iron/Gun
The first thing you will need is a soldering iron, which is the heat source used to melt solder. Irons of the 15W to the 30W range is good for most electronics and or printed circuit board work. Anything higher in wattage and you risk damaging either the component or the board. If you intend to solder heavy components and thick wire, then you will want to invest in an iron of higher wattage or one of the large soldering guns. The main difference between an iron and a gun is that an iron is pencil shaped and designed with a pinpoint heat source for precise work, while a gun is in a familiar gun shape with a large high wattage tip heated by flowing electrical current directly through it.
