Special Applications

From Complete Control Rooms to Pigging Systems and More

Control Rooms / Operator Cabins
Petrotech can design, build and supply complete control rooms. These are of particular benefit on small sites, where all of the control and administration can be housed in a single building.

Various construction methods can be employed to suit the site conditions, ranging from cold or temperate regions through to tropical regions. The control rooms can be partitioned to include offices, showers etc. as well as control panel areas.

The rooms are generally supplied fully wired internally so that the site connections are minimized. Lighting (both internal and external) can be accommodated as well as heating/air-conditioning and convenience outlets.

Examples of controls rooms/housing supplied include:

  • Control room for gas compression station, Nigeria including MCC, 3 generator panels, supervisory panel, UPS, air-conditioning and office area.
  • Control room for onshore oil production site in the UK including MCC, ESD system, UPS, air-conditioning, toilet/shower and kitchen.
  • Water treatment analyzer house for Saudi Arabia including analyzer equipment and air-conditioning. (maximum temperature variation 1 deg. C)
  • Control Room for Decoker System in Turkey, ATEX Zone2 installation complete with HVAC and auxiliary power distribution boards.

Pneumatics
Pneumatic Control Systems have been used since the early 1900’s for various control related functions within the Petrochemical Industry. The inherent advantages that made them popular from the start still have a benefit today in certain applications.

Petrotech UK (formerly Amot Systems division) introduced the world’s first indicating relay in the early 1950’s and it has become a benchmark since then in Petrochemical alarm, control and shutdown systems.

The advantages of Pneumatic controls in certain Petrochemical situations are inherent safety in hazardous areas, rugged construction and ease of maintenance and repair with basic tools and knowledge.

Despite all the sophistication available with modern PLC based control and alarm systems. There is still a need in certain applications for a basic, reliable, rugged and easily maintained control system.

Pneumatic Control panels are manufactured using a variety of materials to suit the intended application.

  • Cabinet: Stainless Steel, Mild Steel Painted, GRP, Polyester etc.
  • Tubing: Stainless Steel, Copper, Steel, and Nylon in both metric and imperial sizes
  • Valves: Stainless steel, Brass, Aluminum, Corrosion Protected (gulfproof)
