Industrial Cleaning 2

Situation

BC Master Blasters (BCMB) was approached by a client in the pulp and paper industry to provide cleaning for their pre-steaming chip bin. Previously, this job had required manual entry during shutdown maintenance periods and took almost 48 hours to complete at a cost of over $15,000.

Cost Saving Services

BCMB developed a new and innovative non-entry cleaning procedure for the pre-steaming chip bin. Keeping the vessel online so the rotary feeder could empty the bin prior to lockout allowed the mill to reclaim the chips and reduce cleaning needs substantially.

The Results

Project completion time was reduced by 75% to 12 hours and project costs were reduced by 89% to only $1,700.
