Outstanding FCC Clamshell installation in North European Refinery
This time around, our On-Site Team was assigned to install two Alloy 825 DN1800 clamshells on a reactor riser expansion joint in a North European refinery. Despite the limited space they had to work with, the installation was completed within four days. Furthermore, they managed to weld more than 24 meters of seam without a single defect after the first pass!
In addition, our team was also required to inspect a large FCC universal tied expansion joint with elbows. During the inspection, our team discovered some issues with the leak detection system of both bellows. This was a challenging task, yet our remarkable welders managed to repair the ply testable system, ensuring its correct functioning until the next shutdown.
Well done team! Stephan Fernández, Salvador Fernández and Alex Silveira! You're making a real difference in our field!
