Precision Engineered Air Control Equipment

This was not an off-the-shelf, quick fix.
This was 18 months of dedicated collaboration.

Working closely with our customer, ERG (Air Pollution Control) Ltd. , we arrived at the final ordering specification for Phase 1 of the Ras Markaz global hub project in the Sultanate of Oman which, when fully-built, will provide a world-leading 200-million-barrel storage capacity.

Our relationship with ERG spans nearly 20 years, so when their engineers needed bespoke solutions for such a key infrastructure project, they knew who to call.

The specification and manufacturing procedures for our contribution to the bio-filter package were particularly stringent. Our heavy-duty, 316L Stainless Steel, 350mm dia. KHDC-01.1 dampers and 350mm dia. KHDR non-return dampers were the obvious choice.

Here’s a few of the value-add steps we performed to ensure that our customer had every confidence we could match the highest standards prescribed by the Client:

> Positive Material Identification certification was required for all materials. Components were PMI tested by an independent company to verify material compositions

> Weld testing was performed in-house using the dye test method and overseen by Chris Greenwood, our qualified expert in this area

> We liaised with a specialist paint sub-contractor to ensure the exacting brief for the coating was met. Again, full documentation needed to be approved and certified

> Performance leak testing was not only performed in-house on our test rig but was witnessed via a live MS Teams video link by ERG Senior Process and Proposals Engineer, Ruba Abd Al Ghani

So, don’t think ‘High Street’, think Savile Row.
