According to the EPA, a typical chemical plant can emit 600-700 tons per year of VOCs from leaking equipment, such as valves, connectors, pumps, sampling connections, compressors, pressure-relief devices, and open-ended lines. These leaks often result in severe consequences, including safety hazards and significant operational losses. Speed and reliability of repair is critical.
Colt specializes in high-pressure, on-line leak repair and mechanical services, employing advanced techniques to detect, isolate, repair, and mitigate leaks without operational disruption when time matters most. Our experienced engineers’ and technicians’ thorough understanding of chemical facilities’ equipment and processes ensure successful outcomes while reinforcing the integrity and performance of the system.
When performing mechanical line freezes, Colt technicians utilize specialized freeze jackets or clamps to create a physical barrier around the section of the pipe that requires intervention. These jackets or clamps are chilled using refrigerants or other cooling agents, effectively freezing the pipe and creating a seal.
Just as we invest in training and growing our knowledge base, we also strategically invest in the utilization of new and innovative technologies. This investment in emerging technologies drives operational excellence by enhancing operational efficiency, productivity, and effectiveness.
