Webinar: Maximising Shutdown Efficiency to Minimise Risk and Downtime
Hot-work barriers, localised hydrostatic testing and onsite machining services to enhance shutdown maintenance

By far the most challenging activity for any facility is the planning and execution of shutdown maintenance activities and repairs. With the safety of personnel and asset being the primary consideration for any task, the execution of all repair work demands the use of safe, reliable and efficient equipment operated by experienced and professional technicians. STATS understand the criticality of system outages, and the operators need to meet production and export commitments in conjunction with managing safety obligations, reducing outage costs and complying with environmental requirements.

Learn how to enhance safety while performing hot-work activities by installing verified atmospheric barriers to protect the worksite from potentially flammable or toxic vapours. In-Line Weld Test Tools are quick and easy to install and can also be used to confirm the integrity of the new weld or tie-in by providing a localised hydrostatic or pneumatic strength test. Safe and efficient these tools use only a minimal volume of test medium, this negates the need to flood and pressurise the entire system, particularly beneficial in ‘mature’ systems by decreasing the potential for leakage.

Discover the safety benefits of mechanical pipe connectors to replace the need for welding, significantly reducing the risks associated with hot-work. Quick to install, this solution significantly reduces shutdown costs and duration by eliminating the need for welding equipment, personnel, habitat and NDT inspection.

STATS onsite machining services include pipe cutting and weld prep application, hot tapping, trepanning and flange re-facing to complement our extensive range of time-saving Process Plant Solutions. This single source supply minimises lines of communication and limits personnel and accommodation requirements, reducing expenditure and downtime.

STATS offer multi-disciplined and competent field support for worldwide deployment to support our Process Plant Solutions.
