Repurpose of Specialty Furnace

Innovative Solutions

ITAC was contracted to repurpose an existing specialty furnace for developmental use for optical fiber manufacturing. ​Because the current process services were not designed for the new configuration, reconfiguration of hazardous material storage and new distribution systems were evaluated as well as alternative scrubber locations. ​The hazardous vapor recovery required consideration of multiple scenarios of process upsets and personnel protection. ​The scrubber hot tie-ins required upfront detailed execution planning in order to avoid a shutdown.
