Destec has designed, developed and built special purpose machines for the oil, petrochemical and nuclear industries.
This was a natural progression from the in-house designed and built on-site portable machines that have been used by our own technicians over the last 25 years.
Destec was awarded a design and build contract for Mobil for a machine to remove the regenerator head at Mobil, Coryton, the vessel was 9.4M diameter by 26mm thick with a 100mm think refractory lining. The work involved dry cutting both the vessel shell and internal refractory and also reforming of the weld prep. The machine design and operation were instrumental to the fastest turnaround for a unit of that size achieved by Mobil.
Another design and build contract was for AMEC to mill 7.6Km of groove, 25mm wide by 6mm deep in a cross pattern on the underside of an accomodation module. Destec designed and built a 4 head hydraulically driven milling machine to carry out the work, that was completed on schedule in nine weeks.
Our teams of engineers backed-up by the most modern design and manufacturing equipment, are always available for discussions on special machining problems.
