Case Study


Rust scale buildup on 119 boiler tubes required cleaning and passivation before being shipped to a major power plant.



The Thompson automation team thoroughly and safely cleaned all tubes with automated boiler tube cleaning.


This boiler chemical cleaning process saved the customer’s valuable time and money as it was much faster than how it had been done prior, and saved passivation chemical and disposal costs. Both the manufacturer and the plant were extremely impressed with the professionalism and safety of the Thompson crew. Years ago, there had been a waterblast injury from hand-lancing at another facility at which the manufacturer had done work, so they were absolutely thrilled with the safety aspect of Thompson’s boiler tube automated system.
