Case Study

Problem

A customer had a vital system process line with a single entry point. Most of the piping was buried in reinforced concrete and not readily accessible without costly excavation or modification. The line required cleaning, and all waste material had to be removed and verified while the cleaning work was performed.

Solution

We designed, fabricated and tested the tooling and equipment to clean and remove all bio-fouling, waste material, and debris. The customer observed and verified our proprietary cleaning process via video inspection and documentation.

Result

An innovative and cost effective solution to a seemingly impossible problem. A very successful project and a very satisfied client.

At Thompson, we are a family.
