Oil and Gas/Hazardous Goods

We manufacture flame proof protected and explosion proof (Ex) equipment for oil, gas and hazardous goods industries. Equipment such as portal cranes and lifting hoists must be designed and built for the special environmental conditions in which they operate. Flammable gases, vapours, dust or fibre in the atmosphere may present a combustion hazard with a risk that electrical apparatus on the portal crane or lifting hoists might become a source of ignition. Prevention entails purpose built control systems, motors, brakes and other protective provisions.

We also install or modernise/replace equipment in existing buildings. Our overhead gantry and portal cranes provide the safety and reliability required by local industry.
