ESI designed and built air blow equipment for us. Using oil-free air compressors and a proper pre-cleaning, the steam piping was cleaned to spec off the critical path timeline. Noise levels during air blowing was <90 dBl. We were really happy with the result and the process ESI used.
ESI became a part of Bechtel’s success at the Elm Road Power Station providing fast-track pre-engineered and detailed procedures for Continuous Steam Blowing, Boiler Chemical Cleaning, and Turbine Lube Oil Flushing during critical path timelines in its commissioning phase. Their team was very professional and completed the work on time and above spec.
ESI air-shipped a high volume of oil flush equipment to our plant in Greece when a previous contractor failed to successfully flush a 600mw turbine with conventional methods. The team from ESI completed the flush in 7 days, exceeding the cleanliness specification with the manufacturer providing warranties and our expectations.
ESI provided turnkey pre-engineering and steam blow services for our two 600mw coal-fired boilers at our plant in Paiton, Indonesia. The pre-engineering and detailed procedures submitted prior to the actual work ensured that the multi-million pound-per-hour steam blows were successfully completed in ten days instead of the months it would have taken going the conventional route.
ESI saved us $mm after reducing the cleaning activities down from four months to five weeks. They provided a major impact on the critical path startup timeline that could have otherwise been disastrous. Thanks again ESI!
