A pipe that is clogged becomes a very expensive emergency plumbing problem complete with system downtime and employee overtime. As the pipe becomes lined with scale, grease, or solids, its capacity is reduced, which reduces the efficiency of your system.
Bodine was recently asked to clean 100’ of 4” process piping in an industrial plant. The welded stainless pipe would need to be replaced if someone could not clean the 1” thick, concrete-like deposits that lined the inner wall. The cost of replacement would be expensive, but the real significant cost would be the downtime and disruption involved in replacing this run…and this was only one of several in the plant.
Bodine successfully cleaned the run of piping saving our client a significant amount of money, adding value to their business and solidifying our position as a trusted partner and service provider.
Another project involved cleaning 11,000 feet of 54” combined sewer that had become over half filled with debris over the years. Bodine was able to clean the pipe and demonstrate through televising with a color pan and tilt camera that the material had been successfully removed. Bodine has over 50 years of experience keeping the flow flowing. A regular, preventative maintenance program of pipe jetting will eliminate buildups and reduced capacity, while ensuring profitable uptime for your plant processes.
