For the production of chemical components, SRI has developed a high-pressure heat exchanger to replace the existing one. Our new version is made of Duplex material. To minimize any product adhesion the product end (pipe side) is polished. Additionally we polished the piping internally. During a short production pauze at our customer, we disconnected the existing item and installed the new one. Earlier, we carefully measured the old heat exchanger on-site in order to guarantee a fast exchange. The project was realized exactly as agreed.
SRI has translated our customer’s requirements into a detailed technical drawing. We meticulously measured all dimensions on-site and implemented these into our drawing. We performed strength calculations according to the EN 13445 design code and further worked out the technical details. Read more
Before starting production, our independent QC department draws up an ITP (inspection and test plan). Based on this ITP, we set up a PIM (pre-inspection meeting) with our customer. Our project office then draws up a detailed plan, which we share with our customer. Read more
After this, the drawing package is finalized for manufacturing. In the meantime, we order all materials as required. During the entire project one of our employees, usually a project engineer, serves as a permanent contact to our customer.
Based on our various drawings SRI starts production. Parts are rolled, welded (under powder deck) and tube sheets drilled. All the wile, our QC department assures quality based on the ITP.Read more
Once we have manufactured all individual parts we assemble the heat exchanger, after which we insert and weld all pipes. After visual inspection of the welding and X-ray examination, we attach the hoods with special hydraulic bolt tensioning equipment. After the entire heat exchanger has been assembled, strength pressing takes place in the presence of the inspecting body. For this specific project the pipe side and the hull side are pressed at a precalculated pressure.
After approval of the heat exchanger, we lift the equipment according to an approved lifting plan and then transport it to our customer. Our assembly team takes care of unloading the equipment and installing it in the factory.Read more
In advance, all piping of the existing heat exchanger was removed and lifted out. After installation, we reconnect all piping to the new one and perform the SAT (site acceptance test). Periodically, we consult with our customer when SRI specialists are to carry out inspections and any repairs. As always, we are standby 24/7 for our customers.
Through years of experience, backed up by continuous innovation in engineering, manufacturing techniques, quality control and organization, SRI is certified for PED/CE Module H/H1, ASME U&R Stamp, SELO en ISO 9001. We prove to be a reliable partner for many, often recurring customers worldwide.
From the small town of Veenwouden, The Netherlands, SRI has evolved into a global manufacturer of process industry equipment. We are proud of our roots as well as our worldwide status.
