ProTek® Enclosures are certified by Det Norske Veritas (DNV) and are commonly used on offshore platforms and onshore petrochemical facilities where weight and space is always a constraint.
ProTek® Enclosures are manufactured using non-metallic lightweight composite products bolted to a secondary steel structure. They are designed and engineered to fit around critical equipment found in the oil and gas industry such as:
• ESDV (Emergency Shut-Down Valve)
• Riser Hang-offs
A detailed survey ensures any nearby equipment or structure is accommodated which Solent Composite Systems use to deliver an engineered lightweight enclosure system that is rapid to assemble, permits inspection and maintenance access and avoids the use of hazardous materials or hot work during the installation. As it relies on mechanical fixings, no special skill or equipment are required.
The versatile design incorporates ventilation details, instrumentation and pipe penetrations. With lift-off panels and access hatches offering rapid and easy access to the equipment.
Being virtually inert, there is zero corrosion risk and outstanding weather resistance, thus offering a maintenance free life for at least 30 years. In addition ProTek® does not contribute to water or air pollution Fire and blast performance is certified by Lloyds and DNV and will withstand a two hour jet fire test at 0.3 kg /sec gas release, and blast tests up to 1.5 barg.
ProTek® Enclosure product performance:
Fire Protection up to 2.5 hours Hydrocarbon (H-Class), Jet fire (J-Class) or Pool fire and Cellulosic (A-Class) fires - all fully certified by third parties, who have witnessed full scale tests. These tests achieve heat flux up to 350 kW / square metre.
Blast Protection up to 1.5barg over pressure, plus suction loads – fully third party certified.
Jet Fire after Blast - Tested to 1.3 barg followed by full scale jet fire.
Thermal Insulation - keeps equipment temperatures below 45ºC whilst jet fire outside is more than 1200ºC. NO additional thermal insulation is required as it is incorporated into the ProTek® structure.
Sound Attenuation – up to 38DB noise reduction (fully satisfies NORSOK R-004 sub sections 6, 7 and 8)
Weather resistance - worldwide environmental conditions offshore onshore and subsea -50 to +50ºC continuous use and high wind and snow loads and ultraviolet and chemical resistance. High temperature products for internal areas and modules can accommodate up to 120ºC service temperature
Zero pollution risk to water, air or personnel
Operations experience is very good permitting fast and easy installation and maintenance access to equipment using doors, lift off hatches etc. - means lower risk and lower cost.
Installation requires no hot work as it relies on mechanical fixings requiring no special skill or equipment and can be carried out by incumbent local site installation crews.
No maintenance whatever is required using ProTek® products – we have examples that have been installed for [ago 1990 ago] years with no problems of any kind and the product has a design life for this application of at least 30 years.
Products are lightweight minimising structural support requirements, facilitating rapid installation and ensuring low HSE risk during operations
Zero claims in over [ago 1990 ago] years in Oil and Gas installations worldwide
