Conversations with an Expert: How Retrofitting this Plant Increased Productivity Without Extensive Downtime

July 24, 2020

After reviewing the original design, as well as additions made to the plant, our team resized their existing reboiler to allow it to boil off the extra water content while maintaining the same Ethylene Glycol (EG) flow rate (heat medium). Since we did the majority of the fabrication, QC, painting, and insulation at our facility, were able to minimize the amount of time and labour spent in the field installing the modifications. The end result was our client was able to save money and at the same time, minimize the downtime of the facility to under two weeks.
