On-Site Metalspray Protects Recovery and Power Boilers at a Pulp Mill
For six years, the coating lost no thickness at all, with any small repairs completed in less than a single shift as part of the plant’s annual shutdown. After twelve years (five years beyond our warranty), additional coating was applied to the boiler for wastage at a higher elevation, which will protect the tubes from corrosion far into the future.
When the coating does eventually wear out, IGS can reapply new coating, resulting in peace of mind for the mill’s operators and a practical means of extending the boiler’s life indefinitely. Additionally, IGS has applied a customized chromium carbide material to the mill’s power boiler, which has an equally strong track record of over ten years of proven performance.
