  • Ensure your track design complies with government and industry standards

Industrial Cleaning

Industrial machinery and equipment requires regular servicing and cleaning to minimize downtime and prevent clogs or breakdowns which might precipitate costly slowdowns or shutdowns. With our many years of experience in all aspects of industrial maintenance, IRWIN’S industrial cleaning professionals effectively service and clean your equipment to get it back on-line as quickly as possible.

 

Some of our industrial cleaning services include:

Surface Condensers and Heat Exchangers:

Surface condensers play an important role in the thermal energy generation cycle, but they must be cleaned regularly to prevent clogging and corrosion. Cleaning maximizes surface area while minimizing resistance to fluid flow through the exchanger, and since the tubes inside condensers are too small to be accessed manually, surface condensers require professional cleaning. Regularly servicing condensers is environmentally friendly and saves on costs by minimizing downtime.

Baghouse Maintenance:

Baghouses serve an important function on many power plants and other industrial facilities, but torn bags and damaged cages can lead to expensive and time-consuming downtime. For optimal results, facilities should perform regular leak tests and pre-emptively change entire sets of filter bags rather than waiting for failures and replacing individual bags.

IRWIN’S provides material and labourers to service all aspects of baghouse maintenance and repair, including powder leak tests, industrial filter replacement and more. Our goal is to get each baghouse back on line as soon as possible to minimize downtime and maximize productivity.  

Water Filtration Systems:

Water intended for power generation must be filtered to keep steam generation systems running efficiently and reduce shutdowns and stoppages. Consequently, water filters need to be regularly changed. Additionally, in cold-weather climates where ice blockages reduces generation efficiency, they also require de-icing.

Assorted Industrial Cleaning:

Other industrial cleaning services offer by IRWIN’S include, but are not limited to:

  • Sandblasting 
  • Pressure-washing (hot and cold)
  • Precipitator Servicing/Cleaning 
  • Tank and Vessel Cleaning 
  • Equipment Blowdowns 

These are distinct from air cleaners, which use disposable filters to remove dust. – i.e. precipitators
