Customised systems for process vacuum, heat transfer and mass transfer applications
End-to-end turnkey projects for process improvement
Our Custom Engineered Products (CEP) group, evolved from the acquisition of Hick Hargreaves, can provide you with equipment and turnkey services for your oil and gas, petrochemical, power generation, CPI and associated industry applications. Our services include process and mechanical design, development, project management and installation of multi-stage systems.
Steam Ejector Vacuum Systems
We can help you to replace your single stage ejector systems with multi-stage systems, providing improved energy-efficiency and the capability to handle high vapour loads without the risk of cavitation. A relatively low capital cost provides an attractive return on investment.
We have over 90 years of experience in the design and supply of steam ejector systems. Our experience in steam ejector applications include:
- Refinery Vacuum Systems
- Vacuum Distillation Units
- Flash Evaporation for Seawater Desalination
- Turbine Condenser Air Extraction
- Edible Oil Processing
- Evaporative Cooling
Our field-proven designs for water injection seawater deaerators are based on our experience in floating production vessels, including installations on FPSO’s, semi-submersibles and tension leg platforms.
You can choose between:
- Spray/pack deaerators
- Packed column deaerators
- Trace gas stripping deaerators
High Pressure Feedwater Heaters
We offer design and supply of replacement feedwater heaters for central power generating plants.
Using designs developed by Hick Hargreaves and proven over 25 years of reliable service, our current installations are suited for modern power station operating practices.
Services include replacement of vertical heaters with radiographic testing of the back face from the welded tube to tubesheet joints to ensure integrity of these critical areas.
Hybrid and Liquid Ring Vacuum Pumps
An often overlooked process vacuum solution, we can help you to combine steam ejectors and liquid ring pumps in a hybrid pumping system designed to bring you higher efficiency and improved reliability.
We have 50 years experience of designing and supplying these pumps to refinery and chemical plants across the globe.
We can also supply engineer-to-order liquid pump systems, constructed and fabricated in materials compatible with your specific process.
