ProTek® Modules 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® composite panels which are designed to be bolted to a secondary steel structure, are used to manufacture a range of modules which includes freezers, accommodation and critical equipment such as calorimeters, this forms a sealed fire / blast wall that resists fire and blast loadings.
ProTek® composite panels are also gas and water tight and must also withstand wind and wave load acceleration movements under extreme climatic conditions. The high insulation properties of the ProTek® system ensures minimum temperature rise, thus providing essential integrity of the protected equipment. In addition ProTek® delivers sound attenuation up to 38dB(A) according to NORSOK R-004.
ProTek® is manufactured from an advanced composite panel system which is lightweight and has wide design versatility. 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® Module 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 minimizing 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
