As a result of our specialised services, BLJ In-situ Solutions has an excellent reputation as a Mechanical Maintenance and Shutdown Service Provider across many power generation sectors. To learn more about our range of services, take a look at our FAQs below.
Controlled bolting is the technique of applying an accurate torque load to a mechanical joint in order to assure joint integrity. Because bolted joints are frequently one of the most prevalent parts in industrial components, the durability of each connection is critical. At BLJ, we have specialised methods for accurately and precisely tightening or loosening bolts in various mechanical applications in power generation sectors.
Controlled bolting is essential in the energy industry where secure and reliable bolted connections are crucial. Properly tightened bolts provide better load transfer and stability, enhancing the overall performance of equipment or structures. This can improve productivity, reduce wear and tear, and increase equipment lifespan. By ensuring accurate and consistent bolted connections, controlled bolting helps prevent costly repairs, rework, or equipment damage caused by improper bolt tightening. It also minimizes the risk of unplanned downtime, saving power stations valuable time and money.
Flange Joint Management involves the systematic approach to ensuring the integrity and reliability of flanged connections in industrial piping systems used throughout the energy industry. It includes activities such as inspection, maintenance, and optimisation of flange joints to prevent leaks, improve safety, and enhance operational efficiency. Flanged joints are critical components in a piping system and are subject to wear and tear over time, so regular maintenance is crucial. At BLJ, we have specialised methods for accurately and precisely maintaining flange joints to minimise downtime in power stations.
Flange Joint Management offers several benefits including helping prevent leaks and associated safety hazards, reducing downtime and maintenance costs, extending the service life of flange joints, and enhancing overall system integrity. Proper management ensures compliance with industry standards and regulations, improves operational efficiency, and minimises the risk of environmental contamination. This is especially important within the power generation sector.
Hot tapping is a method of making a connection to an existing pressurised system, such as a pipeline or pressure vessel, without the tank or pipe experiencing downtime. This prevents costly and potentially dangerous hazards while allowing for continued operation of power generation plants and machinery.
BLJ’s Hot Tapping services allow for the continued operation of the plant and individual systems while repairs or modifications are being made. This means shutdown time is eliminated, saving you time and money. Hot Tapping also serves as a safe and efficient way of making connections to pressurised systems – essential for fossil fuel power stations, steam turbines, hydroelectric power stations and more.
Shutdown services are comprehensive maintenance and repair activities carried out on production-critical assets and infrastructure in the energy industry. These services involve halting all plant activities to facilitate repairs, maintenance and equipment replacements. Shutdowns are crucial for ensuring power station plant reliability, compliance with safety regulations, and optimising energy production performance.
BLJ In-Situ Solutions personnel are able to complete servicing operations to plant equipment on-site with portable machines to increase plant up-time, safety and productivity while reducing the time, labour and transport costs of assembling and reassembling equipment.
Any issue in the plants equipment can put the project over budget, especially if items need to be disassembled and transported to be machined offsite. Any project facing this problem needs a fast and reliable solution to get the operation back up and running as quickly as possible. Using BLJ In-Situ Solutions portable machining equipment, our technicians are able to conduct high-quality, precision machining in-situ. This allows significant savings on personnel’s time, power generation plant servicing and traditional maintenance costs.
Our on-site machining solutions are ideal for any power generation project in the energy industry which needs quick and efficient in-situ machining services. Field maintenance is the best choice for planned or emergency shut-downs to mill, bore, drill, trepan or any maintenance task where adjustments to machinery are required.
Where traditionally equipment would need to be disassembled and machined off-site in a workshop, our portable machining equipment allows our expert team to conduct work in-situ.
Shutdown services facilitate the onsite maintenance and repair of plant equipment. This includes:
