LAX Boiler Tube Repair
A General Contractor who was working on the LAX International Terminal expansion was asked by the facility for help with leaking tubes in their D-Type boiler. The GC had worked with Heat Transfer Solutions in the past on a tank repair and knew where to go for mechanical equipment repair help. HTS boilermakers identified the leaking tubes and performed the repair.
- Prepare the tubes to accept the plugs by resizing the tube openings.
- Set the plugs at the proper temperature to optimize insertion depth.
- Drive the plugs into the tube openings, allowing for expansion under operational temperature and ensuring a tight fit and quality repair.
- Confirming and documenting the repair by sealing the pressure vessel and hydrotesting the boiler.
Other companies may not take as many steps as Heat Transfer Solutions for something as seemingly simple as a tube plug, but other companies may end up chasing roll leaks, causing further damage to your pressure vessel.
Whether you’re a Facilities Manager, General Contractor, or Mechanical Contractor, Heat Transfer Solutions is the industry leader for boiler and pressure vessel repairs.
