DEKOMTE believes in providing a continuous field support and engineering assistance for power plants and industrial users. Inspections should be a core part of ensuring plant integrity, life and reliability. DEKOMTE has a team of specialist engineers available to carry out a range of inspection services to suit your requirements; online and offline, intrusive and non-intrusive.
DEKOMTE has skilled and experienced site engineers and designers who are able to review all expansion joints in a plant and produce a technical report for maintenance planning and plant improvement.
An annual site report can give a summarised plan of all joints on plant, their condition and future maintenance action required. Life extension through preventative maintenance is what gives value to DEKOMTE technical services.
DEKOMTE uses many NDT and NDE techniques to evaluate the installation and installed aspects of expansion joints. Thorough life assessments can help formulate a maintenance strategy and planned changes around scheduled plant shutdowns.
Thermographic surveys are particularly useful to determine the degradation and future problems in the life of the joint and adjacent duct system. Linked to a maintenance strategy additional inspections enhance the knowledge culture given by DEKOMTE technical support.
When an inspection is made, the fabric replacement can be planned to coincide with outage schedules. The upgrading of materials, composition, fixing systems or internal parts can give an important impact on longer life and more durable expansion joints.
A thorough evaluation of the adjacent ducting is required to minimise modification to the duct or steel parts.
