Power Boilers

As more pulp and paper facilities combust waste products and less than desirable fuels, corrosion and erosion emerge as significant operational problems. IGS has significant experience and understanding related to the issues affecting hog fuel, circulating fluidized bed (link to this equipment page), and industrial size power boilers. IGS’s Metalspray™ and Automated Weld Overlay service offering represent economic alternatives to water-wall and furnace element replacement, with documented life extension of these components of up to 15 years. Increasingly, our customers are concluding that the long term reliability offered by our surface protection services represents attractive peace of mind and economic benefits compared with performing maintenance on a discovery basis.
