Galvanising bath extraction hood

We were approached by Premier Galvansing Ltd in Corby to look at improving the extraction on their hot dip galvanising bath. This is the first stage of the project was to close off the gaps where the fumes could excape and make a better seal for where the two pipes met. Also smooth out the nasty right angles so that the gasses could move more easily. It was discussed that acid resistant brush strips would be best as they wouldn’t deform as much over time, but would offer least resistance for when crane cables and two fixed opbjects needed to pass.

Anti-cavitation valve overhaul

We were asked if we could repair some anti-cavitation valves for Welland and Deeping Internal Drainage Board, Pode Hole, Spalding. As you can see the valves were in very poor condition and had been subjected to some quite arduous conditions, but once pulled apart and inspected we were able to repair and make them fully operational again. In total we were given 6x of these valves, all done one by one, each one needed slightly different work doing to it than the other, but all the corrosion was removed, new 40mm thick solid stainless steel arms were machined and fabricated in place of the rotten units. All the bronze hinges were stripped and overhauled, holes reamed and pins polished. All the broken cast sections were removed and replaced with water jet cut stainless steel profiles. New seals made and bonded in place, then any exposed metalwork shot blasted at a local company called Blast off ( and coated in chlorinated rubber paint. The client then installed these and remarked on how much better their pumps worked, which resulted in less energy being consumed also!


Stainless steel screen for interceptor tank and wier

Fabrication of bespoke stainless steel filter screen for a petro-chemical works. The original unit was beyond repair and the media used for filteration obsolete so we were asked to come up with a long term solution to the problem. The frame on teh screen can be split into two like a sandwich, so that should the screen material become damaged then it can be easily replaced. The work also included the fabrication from old 1960’s drawings a new water weir tank for the same project, This was fabricated in mild steel and hot dip galvanised afterwards


High level sructural steelwork and crane system

Installation of high level (15m from floor) steelwork, open mesh flooring and modular handrails into Spalding Energy Powerstation on West Marsh Road, Spalding, Lincolnshire. Work involved the modification of some existing steelwork and the provision of new beams and flooring so that a new ‘laydown’ and working area could be formed for when the plant is out during routine maintenance. This work also entailed the design and installation of a fixed crane system complete with pneumatic hoist for engineers to quickly lift and lower smaller components without using the larger 120tonne overhead crane.

Installation of high pressure BOGE compressor

Supply and installation of high pressure BOGE screw compressor to Welland Power Ltd in Spalding, Lincolnshire. ( to supply high pressure air via a new style desicant and refrigerant dryer combination unit into their nitrogen generator for laser cutting. New compressor will be more efficient than their existing unit and offer a cost saving overall when coupled to the new type of dryer unit.
