Flexitallic has successfully completed extensive work on a recent programme of time-sensitive shutdowns, one of which included a comprehensive review of exchanger gaskets at a large refinery in Humberside. 


The programme of works at the refinery was planned down to the smallest detail, following twelve months of preparation. It saw Flexitallic’s mobile shutdown unit and Refinery Manager, Laura Parker based on-site to oversee the operation and ensure its client’s largest shutdown for fifteen years ran smoothly.


Flexitallic’s mobile shutdown unit, which provides additional support during shutdown/turnaround periods, manufactures and refurbishes gaskets whilst acting as an initial on-site point of contact for gasket related issues.


It has also recently been utilised on a shutdown operation, which remedied an ongoing issue with problematic flanges, to prevent further lost earnings. 


Laura said: “When companies enter into a shutdown phase it is vital that the work to be carried by out has been planned extensively to ensure timescales are met. Combining the preparation carried out at our head office, with the abilities of the mobile shut down unit ensures Flexitallic is able to deliver an exceptional service, capable of reacting to any unforeseen circumstances quickly and efficiently.”


A senior engineer at one of Flexitallic’s clients, said: “After identifying a problem during shutdown, we liaised with the Applications Engineering team, who quickly identified and installed a cost, and time effective solution. Flexitallic has built an excellent reputation in industry for its shutdown service, after experiencing it first-hand I can say with some confidence that this reputation is true to form.”


Flexitallic has supported more than four shutdowns in recent months, which included a trip to a Finland-based client.
