Through Nova’s vessel integrity program they noticed metal loss in the radius of the outlet piping on two shell & tube exchanged head nozzles. They requested Aspire Services to replace the outlet nozzles and change the location of the PSV inlet location on the nozzle. These repairs were on a tight dead line as they needed to be completed during a turnaround. Aspire’s responsibilities included ABSA registration, design and fabrication of a specialty blind flange for the hydro test, nozzle repair, hydrotest, and external coating. The repair required exacting tolerances because the head had to fit back in their original location.
