Hamcock Industrial Access specializes in the cleaning, inspection, and maintenance of Paper Mill structures. Through the use of innovative rope access techniques, we can rapidly assess your facility’s conditions and recommend and perform any necessary repairs. Pulp & Paper Mills are often corrosive environments for equipment and structures, and can produce a large amount of dust and heat. Sustaining an effective preventive maintenance program will reduce or eliminate costly equipment failures or production down time.
Working cooperatively with Paper Mill owners & facility managers, we can help facilities prevent potential costly fines for non-compliance with environmental air quality requirements. Our certified rope access technicians can address any stack efficiency issues, whether internal or external to the structures.
From industrial chimney sweeping & inspections to FRP stack, liner and tank inspection and repair, IA is here to address the most challenging, high-elevation Paper Mill maintenance needs. We install and repair safety platforms, ladders, access structures, lighting and lightning protection on all structures, chimneys and stacks.
Hamcock Industrial Access can help extend the useful life of weathered or aging structures. We provide coatings, painting and surface reconditioning including removing scale and rust, preparing surfaces for repair, and painting/application of protective coatings and lining materials.
Hamcock Industrial Access offers inspection, testing and preventative maintenance techniques including:
- Non Destructive Testing (NDT) – NDT methods such as Ultrasonic Thickness Testing, Schmidt Hammer Testing, Laser Surveys, and Hot Camera Inspections are used to help determine the structural integrity of industrial structures without damaging the material or composition. During NDT methods, the structure is not damaged or affected in anyway. Ultrasonic Thickness Testing is our most popular choice of NDT services thanks to cost, speed & accuracy.
- Infrared Thermography- This technique is used to spot leakage of heat through welds, couplings, valves or junctions/connections within structures, piping, ductwork, breaching or stack construction. Spotting these vulnerabilities allows us to stay ahead of breakdowns and outages by addressing weak spots before they turn into larger issues.
- Petrographic Testing- This method takes material samples or borings of the structure for laboratory testing in order to determine structural weakness or aging.
