Though it is no longer used in the manufacture of new boilers, boilermakers and boiler maintenance workers can be exposed to asbestos on any boiler or furnace that was built prior to 1990. This substance is linked to life-threatening diseases such as mesothelioma, asbestosis and various forms of cancer.
If you were exposed to asbestos while working on boilers or pressure vessels, and you have contracted an asbestos-related disease, like mesothelioma, you may be able to obtain compensation for your financial losses and suffering.

Boilermakers and Asbestos Exposure
All of the major manufacturers have used asbestos for fire-retardant insulation, mortar, and gaskets, including Babcock & Wilcox, Combustion Engineering, Foster Wheeler, and Kewanee. Pipes leading to and from boilers were wrapped with asbestos insulation. In addition, the boiler walls were covered with asbestos materials, and doors and gaskets were lined with materials containing asbestos.
Because of the confined spaces and poor ventilation of many boiler rooms, boiler repair and maintenance workers are especially prone to asbestos exposure.
