Integrated Technologies, Inc. (ITI) has decades of experience managing system functional and process commissioning, as well as training staff on the operation and maintenance of equipment. ITI can support our clients through and beyond transition from construction to full production.
Functional Commissioning (Start-up)
Functional commissioning support immediately follows installation. The purpose of start-up support is to demonstrate and validate the mechanical and electrical functionality of equipment and systems.
Process commissioning follows start-up. The purpose of this commissioning is to demonstrate and validate processes. Surface finishing process commissioning may include water treatment commissioning, tank and material conditioning and passivation, process solution make-up, ventilation and scrubber commissioning, wastewater treatment commissioning, laboratory commissioning, and process specification coupon processing and testing. Testing can include salt spray, coating thickness, weight, hardness, abrasion resistance, adhesion, etc.
Training can start concurrently with start-up and/or commissioning, or it can be designed to follow commissioning. If training follows commissioning, we usually begin with classroom training and follow this with a period of supervised hands-on operations and maintenance support. Many design-build and design-bid-build projects fail to properly allocate time and resources for these critical tasks. ITI can support projects as small as one day to multi-year projects around the globe. ITI can develop start-up, commissioning, training, and O&M, health, and safety plans. We can provide extended operations and maintenance support, on-site tooling design and process optimization services. We custom design projects just like processes to meet client requirements.
