Revamp Project

IRED has extensive technical and engineering experience with revamp projects.

We have assisted numerous clients across diverse industries in overcoming the hurdles associated with modifying or renovating equipment within existing facilities. Our support encompasses a range of activities, such as retrofits, upgrades, repairs, and rebuilds etc.

Revamps projects are done for a variety of business reasons such as:

  • Improving profitability
  • Increasing output and efficiency
  • Compliance with new regulations
  • Enhancing safety and reliability

Success of these projects is critical in most cases. IRED can help with the success of these projects by ensuring proper front end planning and execution is done. This allows for the right strategies to be implemented to address the associated risks and to commit proper resources to the project.

Sucess Stories

Case 1: Main Outlet Header

Challenge:

Elevated metal surface temperature and bulging in the main outlet header. Objective was to predict whether a cracked refractory will significantly impact the flow as well as the temperature of the components.

Solution:

Conducted field survey, technical review and performed Computational Fluid Dynamics (CFD) simulations and Finite Element Analysis (FEA) of the area of concern to determine potential causes

Case 2: Reformer Roof Repair

Challenge:

Reformer roof repair required due to excessive corrosion and hole through which caused the Refractory Ceramic Fibres (RCF) modules to get wet and fall down.

Solution:

Complete roof panel replacement with new RCF modules with thinned and holed plates removed and recommendations to reduce/prevent corrosion.
