For many families, going on a work trip might not seem like the most exciting way to spend quality time together. But for our team at INTEREP, bringing our loved ones to industrial work sites is a chance to make unforgettable memories and show them what we do. There’s something special about having your family by your side as you don a hard hat and safety goggles, ready to tackle a project together. It’s a chance to share a unique experience and bond over the challenges and triumphs of the work. And while we might be working hard to get the job done, we know that our family is there for us, providing support and encouragement every step of the way. Of course, when it’s time to work, we take our job seriously. We suit up and get down to business, making sure that every detail is just right. But we never lose sight of the fact that we’re creating memories together and building relationships that will last a lifetime. Whether we’re installing new equipment, repairing equipment, or just working on routine maintenance, we always make time to enjoy the moment and appreciate the opportunity to work with our family by our side. It’s a chance to show them what we do, and to remind ourselves why we love what we do. So, to our families who have joined us on work trips: thank you for being our rock and making these experiences unforgettable. We might be working hard, but we know that with you by our side, anything is possible. Here’s to making more memories together on the job site!

Centrifugal fans are a critical component in industrial settings, used to move air and other gases through various industrial processes to power machines and equipment. These fans are often the unsung heroes of heavy industries, and their proper functioning is essential to maintain productivity, reduce downtime, and keep operations running smoothly. At INTEREP, we provide a range of services to ensure your centrifugal fans are functioning at their best. Our team of experts uses the latest technology and advanced techniques to design customized centrifugal fans that cater to your specific needs, whether you are in power generation, oil and gas, or any other heavy industry. Our approach to designing customized centrifugal fans involves an in-depth analysis of the specific requirements of your system. We use computer-aided design (CAD) and computational fluid dynamics (CFD) software to optimize fan performance, which ensures that our designs are highly efficient and effective. Over time, centrifugal fans can become worn or damaged, leading to decreased efficiency and increased downtime. Our refurbishment services include cleaning, repairing, and replacing parts to restore your fan’s functionality and extend its lifespan. Balancing is an essential process to maintain efficient airflow and reduce noise levels. Our team uses advanced balancing techniques such as vibration analysis and laser alignment to ensure your fans are running smoothly and efficiently. We also provide on-site repairs, maintenance, and installation services to keep your operations running smoothly. Our system assessment services include a thorough review of your operations to identify areas for improvement in your system. We use advanced monitoring tools and techniques to analyze your system’s performance, recommend customized solutions to improve performance, and reduce costs.

An INTEREP expansion joint hard at work. Can’t see it? That’s because it’s doing its job. You can juuuuust barely see the gap in the telescoping flow-liners there. We used a braided seal and cavity packing to ensure that no dust would accumulate in the bellows convolutions, and that this expansion joint would be able to run for many years without any special attention… even in hot metals service, with slag, abrasive particulate, and sulfur gas!

#hotshot time! This INCOLOY 800 universal expansion joint refurbishment is going to make it out of our shop just in time to get to an oil refinery on the last day of their turnaround, so they can start up on schedule and keep making money! They didn’t anticipate needing to replace this expansion joint, because it’s only 6 months old, but it wasn’t an INTEREP part, and wasn’t suited to the application, so they discovered the bellows had already failed when they brought the FCCU offline.

Shooting an infrared thermal survey on the high pressure superheat piping of an Alstom HRSG. These units came with metal bellows penetration seals and INTEREP is one of the few companies that will show customers how to replace them with metal a second time! Sure, we offer fabric like everyone else, but if you can get another 5-10 years with metal, go for it!

We think we have the coolest job. At this Coal Plant, we had 10 EJ splices to do. All requiring us to be tied in with access only possible by lift, scaffolding, or stairs. These Rubber EJs had to be heat cured, meaning we had an INTEREP crew working around the clock for 4 days. This was a fun one. 😆 check out our Instagram for more pictures of this job. @interep.inc

We’ll do whatever it takes to keep you up and running….. even if that means social closening. 🤝 . . . We fought this water treatment silo expansion joint for hours. Sometimes you just need a little elbow grease from a buddy to help you operate those vice grips. This one had an EPDM expansion joint belt with a natural gum rubber sheet liner inside.
