Extraordinary FCC Expansion Joint repair

Extraordinary FCC Expansion Joint repair

Another success to add to our list. We did it again! Our on-site team has successfully completed a very complex repair in a FCC Expansion Joint. At a North European refinery, our team executed a highly complex repair on an FCC (Fluid Catalytic Cracking) Expansion Joint.

The awesome work of our on-site team

This achievement is a testament to the unwavering commitment, expertise, and incredible teamwork of our on-site professionals. They not only tackled this intricate repair but also exceeded expectations by ensuring the seamless operation of the FCC expansion joint, a critical component in the refining process.

What made this repair so special?

The repair involved intricate welding, high-precision alignment, and a thorough understanding of the FCC Expansion Joints. The access to the unit was incredibly narrow, but our specialists demonstrated their exceptional skills and determination by successfully maneuvering inside from the reactor to carry out the repair. Our team's ability to troubleshoot, strategize, and execute this repair with precision is nothing short of remarkable. Their dedication to safety, quality, and efficiency was truly outstanding.

This successful repair represents a significant achievement, both in terms of maintaining the integrity of the refinery's operations and in reducing downtime and costs associated with potential production interruptions.

Thank you to our outstanding on-site team for making this remarkable repair possible!
