PAPER & PULP INDUSTRY

AS CLIENTS ACROSS THE PAPER INDUSTRY HAVE DISCOVERED, IT PAYS TO PARTNER WITH IIA.

Papermaking is a time-honored process that has evolved into one of the world’s largest industries. Modern papermaking is a complex process that requires high temperatures and high-pressure equipment, which can put equipment at greater risk of corrosion and cracking. The good news? You can stop structural integrity issues in their tracks — and IIA can help.

We are the inspection experts, and a trusted partner to the paper and pulp industry. Clients turn to us for unmatched technical expertise and quick project turnaround to keep their paper and pulp mills running smoothly and reliably.

Our toolkit includes conventional and advanced non-destructive examination (NDE) to pinpoint and analyze cracks, corrosion, erosion and other damage in recovery boilers, piping systems, digesters, kilns — every corner of your plant. And our services don’t stop there. Our team is also experienced with the mechanical lift devices inside and outside the facility that support your operations.

Our certified technicians understand your plant operations and know which inspection method to deploy for any job. The IIA team has the capacity to respond to multiple concurrent outages.

As a full-service company, our experts can assist with outage planning on the front end and follow up inspections with repair recommendations and engineering solutions. Our team will work closely with your team every step of the way.

Did you know? We are much more than outage experts. With our state-of-the-art equipment, we can inspect your tanks while they are fully operational. No draining required!

Why IIA? IIA is committed to safety and quality, and we instill these values in all of our technicians. We also ensure each team member is knowledgeable about your plant’s operational goals and needs. Our reliable service helps you quickly return to operation following an outage — or in some cases, avoid a shutdown altogether.
