Boiler Drum Replication Case Study

Posted in Environmental, Manufacturing, Process, Marine

£300 test saves client £20k repair

A major client in the petrochemical processing industry was experiencing substantial health and safety and lifetime issues around a boiler drum that did not appear to be reaching its planned lifetime in use.

As a result the client faced substantial repair costs and process downtime and called Axiom in to investigate the causes of the potential failure.

Using replica analysis Axiom was able to demonstrate that the defect within the boiler was not introduced as a result of process activities but down to an original equipment manufacturers defect.

As a direct result the manufacturer of the boiler drum corrected the defect and Axiom’s client saved £20,000 in repair and process downtime.
