We have the teams and equipment for addressing the unique challenges of turnaround work.
We are one of the largest catalyst services providers in North America, with more than 500 employees in the U.S., Canada and Trinidad.
Catalyst change-out work ranks among the most technically challenging and potentially hazardous aspects of maintaining refining, chemical and petrochemicals plants. Our team has developed the specialized equipment, protocols, training and teamwork required to perform this work efficiently and with the highest safety standards.
This combination of technical and human skills has given us a particular competence in oxygen-free environments and in servicing fluid catalytic cracking (FCC) units.
JVIC’s SOFTLOAD® maintenance services removes, replaces, and installs catalysts in reformers and reactors in the chemical, petrochemical, and oil refining industries.
Modification, maintenance and replacement of towers and tower internals are key aspects of most turnarounds in refining, chemical and petrochemicals plants. Our expert teams and specialist equipment can replace complete tower sections and beams, or retrofit them with a variety of trays, distributors, accumulators, and feed/draw arrangements.
As with all aspects of our turnaround work, our first concern is always with the safety of the personnel on site.
Machining, beveling, exchanger bundle extraction/installation, bolt torqueing and monitoring of critical bolted components are an essential component of the timely execution of turnarounds. Our dedicated teams have expertise across all types of heavy equipment and perform work to the highest level of precision, while maximizing safety and efficiency.
The specialized nature of refining, chemical and petrochemicals plants creates a need for welding capabilities that go beyond the most demanding ASME and NBIC standards. Our long tenured teams of specialty crafts people have state of the art skills across all alloys so that we can deliver whatever is required in your specific situation.
