Detailed Reporting


To complement our refractory services, Sentinel Integrity provides precise refractory reporting services, which can assist with repair projections for future planned outages.

Our reports include a map of the areas we’ve repaired, helping our clients track equipment damage over time. Moreover, they allow for a better understanding of how refractory wear develops over time and how it may affect the equipment. A refractory material placement matrix is also included in our reports.

All of these services are just a few examples of how Sentinel Integrity Solutions is a leading provider of refractory solutions in the refining and petrochemical industry.
