SCOPE OF WORK:
Armstrong International provided a multi-year management solution to maintain and optimize Rohm and Haas’ Deer Park plant which included 4,000 steam traps on-site. Armstrong’s responsibilities included steam trap analysis, repair/replace recommendations, database management, work order scheduling, steam loss reporting, and general steam/condensate system upgrade recommendations.
