Crucial during plant turnarounds and shutdown, our expertise helps resolve complex situations fast and with utmost precision. We provide annual rate contracts (ARC) to ensure maintenance and servicing is done on-time to avoid machine breakdown or failure.

2. Cold Cutting & Pipe Beveling

This is an onsite machining service for pipe maintenance which involves cutting and fabricating the pipes. These pipes are cut and beveled to connect with a new pipe and maintain joint-integrity. To ensure safety and maintain a spark-free environment, we only provide cold pipe cutting services. These services include both ID and OD mounted pipe cutting and beveling.


3. Flange Facing

Therefore, flange facing is a critical activity during plant maintenance and shutdown process. The process helps refurbish damaged flanges.
