Power Generation

Power plants rely on turbines to generate their power. These turbines need to undergo planned maintenance, approximately every six years. This usually consists of hundreds of personal and weeks of down time. During this time, turbines are completely disassembled, cleaned, tested and reassembled. One of the most critical parts of this maintenance is the cleaning of the turbine, which is done via abrasive blasting. This can be extremely costly and conventional methods of blasting containment are inefficient and time consuming. 1300 inflate specializes in saving you time and money in your Turbine maintenance operations.



Constructing a new mining site or performing maintenance is a mammoth task in anyone’s book.  Ground must be dug, walls reinforced, and big machinery used, stored, cleaned, repaired. Such jobs cannot afford to be obstructed by weather.  Time is money and stopping is very costly. 1300 Inflate specialises in saving time and money in your mining endeavours with its state-of-the-art solutions helping you work through rain or shine.



Sterilisation and maintenance on agricultural equipment is a common, expensive and tedious requirement in the agriculture industry. Machinery that is used on multiple sites is generally required to be sterilised when moving to new sites and locations. This often means the machine needs to be taken back to a central sterilisation depot despite some sites being close to each other. This is very costly and time consuming, when ideally machines could be sterilised on site. 1300 inflate and their specialised team have years of experience and have revolutionised the on-site sterilization, changing the way your company operates within the agricultural industry, saving you time, money and frustration.



With almost all industries needing pipes, plumbing and sewers maintained at some point in their operations, plumbing maintenance is one of the most common area’s 1300 inflate saves its clients time and money. Dealing with isolation and pressure often needs specialised methods and equipment which can be costly and take time. Let 1300 inflate save you time and money in your next plumbing or Civic maintenance project.

Requiring rapidly deployable infrastructure for medical applications, 1300 Inflate have the perfect solution ranging from a small aide station at a community event to a complete field hospital following a natural disaster.  The exceptionally fast and simple auto-deployment process is inherently safe and requires minimal personnel and effort, preservingthe medical staff for what they do best – attending to patients and triage.


Abrasive Blasting

Abrasive blasting creates an enormous amount of pollutants as particles of the blasting medium are projected. In an effort to contain the blasting material, the process must be completed in an enclosed space. Traditionally scaffolding would be erected and wrapped to create an enclosed environment to blast in. This method requires 2-3 days just for set-up and can cost between 7-10 thousand dollars. Many companies have begun to consider alternative methods of containing their abrasive blasting to reduce the time required to erect their blasting enclosure and reduce the ongoing cost of such blasting enclosures. Giant Inflatables Industrial has advanced methods for reducing these times and costs and has helped word leaders such as Siemens and Origin Energy do just that. 


Non Destrucive Testing

Non-destructive testing methods are routinely applied in industries where a failure of a component would cause significant hazard or economic loss, such as in turbine generated power plants, etc. Where NDT uses the fluorescent or coloured dye method, the NDT is required to be undertaken in a very dark enclosure to ensure the dye can be detected. It is in these situations where on-site testing to check the component parts of massive machinery like a turbine is critical to save costs and prevent catastrophic failures.

To perform NDT on site, a temporary shelter is required to isolate either light or sound or other interference. Giant Inflatables Industrial can provide all the requirements needed to conduct NDT on site with over 20 years’ experience in the field.


Flood Protection

Damage to land and property due to major flood damage is a regular occurrence in specific parts of the world. Inflatable Flood Barriers reduce the risk and decrease the damage while increasing the protection from flooding.  The time taken to respond to natural disasters like flooding using conventional methods is never enough to prevent the damage or to clean up the devastation.  The innovative, inflatable Flood Barriers are easy and quick to set up, do not cause environmental issues like disposing of sand bags, are easily repairable in all weather conditions.

 Turbines need to undergo constant planned maintenance. During this time, turbines are completely disassembled, cleaned, resurfaced tested and reassembled. One of the most critical operations is the cleaning of the turbine, which is done via abrasive blasting. Such operations can be extremely costly, and conventional methods of blasting containment are inefficient and take time.

Efficient Filtration for power generation plant and systems is critical to avoid the environmental impact of contamination and emissions. When maintaining the performance of gas-fired turbines or preventing the discharge of fly ash from the chimneys of coal or other sources of solid fuels, timely maintenance requires the safe isolation of ducting from working lines.
