Having met us at the Maintec Exhibition, a leading pharmaceutical company asked if we could look at solving the problems they were experiencing with their large steam let down station.
With oversized, non-responsive pressure control valves leading to poor building controls for a critical environment, they needed steam knowledge, control valve expertise, process controls and M&E installation as a turnkey offering.
As the many valve and control system companies they had previously contacted being unable to offer them a complete resolution to their problems, they were delighted when we offered a comprehensive solution.
Working closely with the project engineers, we produced all risk assessment and method statements, asbestos and other necessary surveys, full design scope and specified a DN250 duplex pressure control train with a detailed HMI PLC based process control package. In order to work around a critical weekend shutdown timescale we undertook weekend installation and pre-fabricated the pipework and valve assemblies.
As an independent specialist provider, we were able to ensure that the new plant design specification offered the very best balance of quality of equipment and equipment costs. This included pressure control valves, bellow sealed isolation valves and strainers, duel plate non-return valves, pneumatic control valves with feedback position and a stainless-steel condensate pump-set, with mod bus control panel.
The newly installed turnkey package, now fully commissioned, accurately controls the system within the tight tolerances required. Much tighter temperature and humidity controls have now been achieved for the critical environment and the system is far more efficient and responsive for our client.
Together with a cost effective specification, our internal project managers, now valued as an integral member of the project team, worked closely with the contractors to ensure timely project delivery under extremely tight lead times.
