One of the nation’s largest steel producers recently awarded ProTech-Solutions a mechanical integrity project to provide visual inspection, ultrasonic testing, process safety management reporting and analysis of the company’s gas main piping system. The gas used from the piping system is critical to plant operations and a system shutdown or temporary outage of the gas feed would require plant-wide shut-down. ProTech was successful in identifying immediate areas for repair to remain operational as well as areas that would require repair prior to next inspection.
Following inspection and analysis of the piping system and wall thickness erosion rates ProTech-Solutions was requested to provide ASME compliant composite repairs on areas that fell below minimum allowable wall thickness. The engineered composite material was applied by ProTech trained certified composite technicians and the eroded piping system restored to ensure continued integrity and fitness for service of the piping system.
