Swagelok® Plant Turnaround & Shutdown Services
Plant turnarounds are enormous undertakings that rely on many months, and in some cases years, of planning to be executed successfully and on schedule. Turnarounds involve the tedious process of taking an industrial plant off-stream, removing fuel piping, process piping, and any additional equipment that cannot be maintained in place.
One of the most time consuming activities after reassembling the plant is checking for leakage at all connection points. Our fluid system professional will work with you to efficiently evaluate system leakage in real-time, as well as deliver a detailed report with recommended actions to improve and optimize system performance.
Hear from one of our previous customers, AltaGas, as they share their success story of having our fluid system professionals at their facility:
"As I have been heavily involved in gas plant turnarounds for many years, when I was first approached with the idea of using Swageloks’ current technology to assist with turnarounds, I was not convinced that it would be beneficial. After seeing a demonstration of their capabilities, and knowing that they already perform service work at our facility ( i.e. steam trap surveys and air leak checks), we thought we would give it a try. I can honestly say that with the success we had, we will never do a turnaround without their help again."
AltaGas | Denny Mclean, Maintenance Superintendent
"As a team, we decided to give Swagelok a chance to prove the value of their services. Their process eliminated a lot of pre-work, re-work and cleanup for the operations crew, and looked to be a good time saver. Not only were they professional, they were very knowledgeable and proficient at the task at hand, which was to get us back up and running on time and leak free."
