During this process materials are received and inspected according code and custom specific requirements. Materials are labelled and stored in a secured area. Quality controls on material certificates and heat numbers are in place and documented as required. Parts placement helps our operations to start jobs faster and in a controlled manner when planning determines to start. We believe in building in Quality at Source.
During this process raw materials are transformed into several components for your installation. Pressure vessels, Water bath heathers, heat exchangers and many others passing the hands of our welders. Trained skilled welders are working on several different types of welds – each with different types of materials and different variables such as temperatures and welding wires. Requirements regarding welding procedures are prescribed by the Code and can be extended by project specific requirements. Petrogas holds ASME U and R stamp and the welding quality ISO 3834-2 certificates. Besides visual inspection that includes X-rays and hydro testing up to 450 bar, ultrasonic, PMI (Positive Material Identification) and magnetic tests as required can be performed.
Our turning and milling machines produce all the custom engineered parts we need, from filter components right up to pressure vessels. Having our own machine shop gives us total control over quality, and keeps our costs and lead times to a minimum. It means we can be flexible – if a rush job comes in, we can quickly change priorities to handle it. A progress board helps us eliminate defects, continually improve health and safety issues and implement lean manufacturing. The planning board shows everyone which jobs are coming through on which machines, and the priorities. Everyone can see where each job is and where it’s going next. This level of transparency ensures there are no surprises in our workflow processes
During this process the manufactured components, skids, frames are received in their final coating and assembled by our trained assemblers. We have 15 people in the assembly department, working two shifts putting together the individual system sections themselves (inlet, filter, condenser etc.). Electrical assemblers connect up the wiring to the junction boxes and instruments, and the data telemetry that will go to the customer’s control room. All the system equipment is skid-mounted – along with process piping, instrumentation and safety equipment. We assemble everything before it leaves the factory to be sure that the equipment fits together properly. Quality conducts a final acceptance test and releases the installation for packing.
Packing & Transportion
Making sure your installation will be at your side in good condition that is the objective of our packing department. It does not matter how big the installation is , big or small we pack them all. Wooden packaging material meets the requirement of the ISPM 15 “Guidelines for regulating wood packaging material in international trade.” Together with the transport department all documents are prepared and inspections and labeling is in line according international and customer requirements.
Control Panel Assembly
An separate department looks after the design and manufacturing of the control panel. An installation can be controlled with a control panel. This panel can be operated locally, but remote control from another site is also possible. The barriers, flow-computers, PLC’s and other computers are built into the control panels. Petrogas can deliver a special container in which the panel can be installed. The container can be supplied with facilities like air-conditioning, UPS and fire fighting equipment. Dimensions may vary according to customer’s specification.
