As part of their manufacturing process, a leading producer of special bar quality steel utilizes oxygen supplied to the melt furnace to accelerate scrap meltdown. After replacing damaged piping, they needed the two-inch and three-inch piping located downstream chemically cleaned and flushed to bring it up to specification standards in order to help ensure safe operation.
Maintenance personnel from a chemical company in Brazil approached Colfax Fluid Handling’s Reliability Services to discuss contamination problems in the lubrication systems of their centrifugal compressors in their plant ethylene units. Reliability Services conducted a training seminar outlining best practices in flushing procedures and were awarded the contract for Turnaround services due to their extensive experience and vast technical knowledge.
In August 2014, Colfax Fluid Handing Reliability Services was contracted to devise a plan to flush multiple new piping systems on a new tension leg platform under construction in Texas.
A leading manufacturer of axles and wheels was installing new hydraulic unit piping for a blast furnace in their manufacturing plant. This piping required a pre-commissioning chemical cleaning and high velocity flush.
Customer satisfaction leads to complete lubrication services for refining facility.
