Thermal Insulation Coating allows for heat conservation and personnel protection while providing insulation on irregular objects and eliminates corrosion under insulation (CUI).
We have installed conventional insulation using Calcium Silicate, Perlite and Foamglass with aluminum or stainless steel jacketing on piping, values and vessels. We also build insulation blankets.
Knight Industrial Services uses a wide range of high performance coatings to protect pipelines, tanks, vessels, valves, or just about anything that needs to be protected from the environment.

Fireproofing, a passive fire protection measure, refers to the act of making materials or structures more resistant to fire, or to those materials themselves, or the act of applying such materials. Applying a certified fireproofing system to certain structures allows these to have a fire-resistance rating.
Soil to air interface is the area above and below the natural ground level that tends to corrode due to being adversely exposed to moisture levels, bacteria, temperature changes, oxygen and PH levels.
Our service provides the customer with digging areas up and abrasive blasting to remove corrosion (and after inspection) re-coat using customer specifications to protect from future corrosion.Read More

Corrosion is a naturally occurring phenomenon with virtually all metallic structures, including steel pipelines. External corrosion and internal corrosion are both potential threats to the integrity of a steel pipeline.
Importance of Corrosion Control and Repair
- Preserve Assets
- Governmental Compliance
- Public Safety
- Reduce Maintenance Costs
- Preserve The Environment
This surface preparation method is a safe and environmentally friendly way to remove dead paint, light rust and stains in an area where personnel are present and cleanup is a concern. By adding a water ring, all dust is eliminated and the surface is left clean to paint with a quick rinse.
This method takes the place of power tools, sandblasting, or hydro-blasting and is non-destructive to glass, plastic, and instrumentation. It can also be used for cleaning turbine parts, fin coolers, compressors, piping or just about any surface.Read More

Driving Innovation Within Soft Craft Solutions
Our company does not specialize in one service over another, but rather, specializes in multicraft crews. As of now, 20% of our company is considered true multicraftsmen. Our goal by the end of 2020 is to have 50% multicraftsmen. A multicraftsman on a crew helps cut downtime between crafts.
It is not necessary for the entire crew to be multicraft, the benefits can be noticed with jut a small percentage of the crew being multicraft. This focus on multicraft ensures that we are capable of excelling at all services we offer.
We are able to be a proactive organization because we utilize a business management system called EOS that is centered around gaining organizational traction and solving key issues each department faces on a weekly basis. Each department has a 90-minute meeting once a week in which all issues from the previous week are addressed and assigned action items.
Those action items are to be completed by the following week, no matter what. When we forecast a problem, we attempt to solve it before it becomes an issue.

Our system is set up to catch any deviance’s and correct them before the client becomes involved. If on a T&M project, we log deviance’s re-work, and are transparent about our findings to our customers.
We also have training programs to ensure employees have the proper knowledge to read and follow specifications.
