Winterization of Equipment
Gulf Coast Environmental Systems’ Aftermarket & Field Service team work year round to ensure our customer’s equipment is running at peak performance. Lack of regular maintenance and attention can be costly and dangerous, running the potential risk of fires, explosions, prolonged shutdowns, and regulatory fines.
As the weather begins to change, and temperatures begin to drop, there are a number of steps many facilities will need to take to prepare their equipment for the cold weather. Some of the risks of not properly winterizing equipment are:
- Instrumentation and equipment damage from water freezing and expanding
- Broken and ruptured pipes, caused from the sudden drop in temperature
- Delayed leaks, not found until the weather starts to warm, and the equipment defrosts
- Alteration in chemical processes, caused by freezing or condensation exposure
- Clogged process piping
