Specialist pipework equipment

Achieving the best possible results comes from knowledge, experience and equipment, our Pipe Welding Division Supervisor, Paul Hurst recently sourced the following equipment to improve productivity in the preparation and welding of pipework.

  • Pipework bevelling machines (8 inch to 16 inch pipework). providing a perfect bevel for the welder.
  • 4 new Jasic AC/DC welding plants, water cooled, capable of 315AMPS.
  • Welding turn table, remotely turns pipe reducing the need to stop and start welds.

Feasibility Study

Feasibility Study

Case Study : 800AMP LV Distribution Switchboard

Intelect were contracted by PPG to provide two 3D as-built models of Unit 1 and Unit 2.

The model was developed using point-cloud data captured via our Faro Focus 3D S70 Laser Scanner. Each unit of the factory was scanned over a period of four days including the external building which we provided the client with a hard copy of all scan data for future use.

The 3D models were then manipulated to provide 2D plans and elevations ensuring all new equipment and machinery fit within the working areas. We then introduced our pipework division to produce P&ID’s based on new layouts.

All machinery and equipment were provided via external customers, these included Dromont, Packland, Devree, Cimaco-solutions and more. This helped us achieve the best possible outcome to improve PPG’s current production rate.

Tata Steel Drive Control Panel Refurbishment

Tata Steel Drive Control Panel Refurbishment

Case Study : Tata Steel Drive Control Panel Refurbishment

Intelect were contracted by GE Energy to complete the mechanical design, installation and refurbishment of an onsite Control System based at a Tata Steel site.

Following an engineering site survey, the installation of three replacement drive control systems was completed during a shutdown period of 4 days, in order to best suit the interests of the client.

The installation stage of the project consisted of replacing the obsolete drive with onsite copper work modifications, and upgrading the control PLC systems. Preparation work prior to the installation was completed in-house by our team of fully qualified engineers, and manufactured to the design drawings and specifications of the client.

The project was completed on schedule and within budget, ensuring complete client satisfaction.

Plant decommissioning and relocation

At Intelect, we are specialists in process plant decommissioning and relocation. Our plant relocation engineers are experts in their field, and will work with our clients around the clock to ensure the successful move of equipment, whether that be an individual machine, or a full factory relocation.

Our fully trained team of engineers, operators and support staff will work efficiently and safely ensuring production downtime is kept to a minimum. We provide in-depth planning prior to any project, and our innovative 3D surveying equipment provides fast and accurate measurements down to the millimetre, presenting you with a realistic and true to detail scan. From this single scan, we can develop an in-situ preview design of your site, which not only reduces health and safety risks, but also allows for clash detection, meaning we can spot potential problems before the process begins, saving valuable time and resources.

We are often asked by clients to refurbish existing equipment prior to relocation. Our specialised workshops span over 70,000 sq. ft of space, allowing our expert engineers to easily refurbish and maintain your equipment away from site, reducing the impact to your processes. Refurbishment also reduces the potential of any issues when it comes to the final installation, as all equipment is tested and inspected accordingly prior to leaving our site.
