Case Study: Successful turnaround at a major chemical processing facility
Our customer needed 800 valves repaired during an outage, which was scheduled to shut down production for eight weeks. Projects of this size are typical of the turnaround services Flowserve provides. We followed the same process that enables our customers to avoid unplanned downtime.
First, our engineers and technicians assessed the condition of every valve in advance and planned the maintenance and repairs for each asset. “Bad actor” equipment was scheduled for replacement. When the outage began, we removed the valves and completed class-one repairs on-site or at a Flowserve workshop. Every asset was re-installed and tested, and processing resumed with no delays.
Typical turnaround or outage cycle
Flowserve application engineers and maintenance and repair specialists understand that effective planning is the single most important element of executing a successful turnaround. Our experts engage with plant personnel throughout the turnaround cycle — including the pre-turnaround phase — enabling us to better understand your turnaround goals and align resources accordingly. Implementing maintenance and repairs includes:
- Early engagement — obtain a schedule of upcoming turnarounds
- 18 to 24 months before turnaround — planning, scope definition, valve walk-downs
- 12 to 18 months before turnaround — complete technical review, MOC and finalization of proposals
- 6 to 8 months before turnaround — finalize scope and issue purchase orders
- During turnaround — execution, including emergency repair requirements and start-up assistance
