Heavy Plant and associated equipment vary so much in design, layout, size, age, conditions and even locations that any one factor can have a significant bearing on how a machining problem is tackled, especially during breakdowns. Plant maintenance departments will attend to whatever first-aid they can manage, but with the recognized advantage of calling in specialist services time can be saved and costs reduced.
The advantages are significant when compared win the alternative which could otherwise involve stripping down, transporting to a machine shop, returning to site, reassembly, as compared to taking a special purpose machine to the job.
Our engineers co-operate with clients on new plant and modifications, to give the most viable solutions for on-site machining. The service division offers a rapid response for maintenance and breakdown situations.
Most of the machines and equipment used have been designed and manufactured by Destec Engineering Ltd. Maximum versatility and adaptability combined with accuracy and a good surface finish ensure most In-Situ operations can be handled effectively and quickly.
Destec Engineering has carried out hundreds of conventional and unusual machining contracts on vessel and heat exchanger closures, piework flanges, nozzles, valve seats, offshore wind turbines etc, incorporating all types of profiles, such as spigots, recesses, tapers, grooves ranging from a fine to a gramophone surface finish.
