While they don’t sound very menacing, tubing and clamping failures can cause injury, equipment damage, fires and forced outages. Maintenance literature for these minor but essential components seems scarce, and they don’t typically get inspected on a proactive basis. Performing unscheduled and unplanned maintenance further elevates the risk of errors and mishaps. Here are some preventive measures that will help mitigate the risk in your plant.
Under the skilled direction of our project management staff, craft personnel execute complex, long-term construction projects safely, on time and within budget. Project examples include:
- Refurbishment of two ESPs under separate eight-week outages, including removal and replacement of all existing ESP internals and associated electrical components.
- Demolition of old ESP, fabrication/erection of new ESP and associated ductwork, including tie-in of ductwork to newly installed fans.
- Installation of an SCR, ductwork and all auxiliary equipment for a 420 MW boiler.
