Thompson Removes 50+ Years of Dust in Texas

Featured Image

Recently, our Houston, TX division completed an extremely challenging and successful Combustible Dust Remediation project at a facility within a refining plant.  The demolition of a large warehouse and adjoining extruder building had already been awarded to a large demo contractor, but their proposed process to remediate the combustible dust was the traditional use of scaffolding the entire warehouse and using HVACS.  The scaffolding estimate alone was already north of $300K.

Thompson proposed our DEFA (Dust Encapsulating Foaming Agent) foaming process as a safer and more effective alternative, and were awarded the job. The customer was extremely impressed with the results and Thompson's overall service. (See the impressive before and after results above and below.) In fact, their Remediation Project Coordinator was at first skeptical of this method, but upon the successful completion of the project, is now a huge advocate of our DEFA foaming process. He wrote us to say, "Congratulations on successfully abating the 50+ years of SMA dust that accumulated in the Warehouse and Extruder Area." Congratulations on a job well done by the whole team!
