Year: 2021

What issue did the client have?
Heavy-duty gauge glass required replacement. Hydro test needed to be performed after installing new parts. Plant could not be shut down, even for 5 minutes, and the boiler was from 1953 and required extra caution to hydrotest to 300 PSI.

What did Prime have to offer?
Prime installed new parts, recorded heat numbers and coordinated with ABSA. The boiler was also safely hydrotested.

How was the solution implemented?
The boiler required all new gaskets to pass the hydrotest. It also required additional time to fill, avoiding shut down of the second boiler. The boilers share the same feed water tank and feed water pump.

How did Prime surpass expectations?
Prime went above and beyond to accommodate Cascades, anticipating for issues due to the age of the boiler.

Client appreciation:
The client was happy to have the project completed so that they could get both boilers back online. They also appreciated the coordination with ABSA.
