Infrared Refractory & Mechanical Equipment Inspections
Refractory found in equipment such as steam generators, reaction furnaces, stack bases, sulphur converter beds, regen gas heaters and other equipment is subject to deterioration over time. Without proper maintenance, problems can arise leading to costly equipment failure and unscheduled down time.
An infrared inspection program for refractory and other mechanical equipment is essential for any oil & gas facility wanting to minimize unscheduled down time and maximize productivity and efficiency. Regularly scheduled infrared inspections help to locate and prioritize problem areas so that facility managers can schedule repairs during normal shut down/turn around times. Thermal imaging can also help to reduce the probability of unnecessary refractory or other mechanical equipment replacement by verifying its present condition.
