A Glimpse of the Vastness of Industrial Plumbing Services

This is a question most people are unable to answer. Well, everyone does know what plumbing is but the difference between regular plumbing and industrial plumbing is vague to the common public.

Industrial Plumbing

How can plumbing be any different? Both the industries and residential homes have pipes carrying water. Then why does one need a specially equipped and experienced personnel for industrial plumbing? As logical as these questions are, the fact most people do not know is that the difference lies in the plumbing systems of residential and industrial buildings. As the plumbing systems are completely different, the problems arising and the required repairs and solutions are different in both the cases as well. Various industries have varying fixtures which are not present in the residential setups. The piping system is rather complicated and widespread in the industries. The process of locating the flawed point is difficult due to this. Also, there are multiple washrooms, loads of sinks and several floors in an industry. This makes the entire industrial plumbing architecture more complex. Above all, the usage frequency of industrial plumbing setups is a lot more compared to residential ones. With all these points, it is clear that industrial plumbing requires a higher level of plumbing skills. Even a small flaw in plumbing can lead to huge damages in an industry.

Apart from that, industrial plumbing services include services of various other equipment along with just basic plumbing services. All of these are listed below:

The plumbing needed in mechanical departments:

An industry has several machines. Apart from that, there is an air conditioning system which is cooling or heating a vast area and creating an amiable atmosphere for the employees. The more the capacity of the air conditioner, the higher is the need for servicing and plumbing.

There are also huge boilers and steam machines in manufacturing industries. It is a plumber’s work to ensure that there is no gas or water leakage in the pipes of those boilers and steamers. All these services include:
  • Boiler re-tubing
  • Tube cleaning
  • Valve replacement and repair
  • Low water cut-off testing
  • Boiler safety testing
  • Pump sizing and installation
  • Steam system design and installation
  • Gasketing and insulation services
  • Annual inspection
  • Gas control trains
  • Installation and maintenance of waste heat recovery systems
  • Burner repairs and replacements
  • Burner preventive maintenance
  • Combustion testing and adjustment
  • Cooling tower repairs
  • Water softener services

Line Washers:

Industries have several heavy-duty lines that keep the fluids flowing through all the industrial setups. Without these pipelines, the complete industry is handicapped. But with continuous usage, there is always a chance of blockage and contamination. For these threats, one needs regular line washing. Dirty pipes emit an obnoxious odor and taint the product flowing through it. Line washing is a technique that forces high-pressure water through the pipelines and the combination of high pressure and water is more than enough to clear out all the clogging of the pipes. If line washing is not regularly conducted, the clog can escalate and lead to a complete stop in the flow.

They even need pumps to extract fluids out of a deep container and to pump fluids in and out of a machine. There is a need for fire hydrants, sprinklers, and pumps. New water supplies and hydro excavation services. Regular check-ups of the plumbing systems are a must for preventive measures. As complex the plumbing systems are in an industry, the possibilities of minute flaws leading to grave damages are many.
