Broadland Radiators and Heat Exchangers Limited, which supplies the oil and gas industry with engine radiators, has recently completed a new contract for supply of bespoke cooling packages to a Global Manufacturer of Oil field equipment.
Darrell Roper, Managing Director, explains “We were approached by this new customer after they had seen one of our cooling packages in a similar application to their own and they were impressed with the customisation and the quality. What we had supplied was a solution which was specifically design to handle the customers’ requirements of additional heat in the engine cooling system which had come from an exhaust gas cooling system. Our radiator package was sized to fit in the customers’ container, utilising existing space thereby reducing the need for local re-engineering time and cost”.
From the initial enquiry from the project engineer we were able to offer a bespoke solution featuring full thermal performance, 3D models and full costings within 48 hours. Once the project was given the go ahead we were able to work with existing customers to alter our production plans and offer these new units in around two thirds of the initial lead time which has really helped our new customer with shipping times and costs.
The project engineer added “Working in Australia it is very common to be working in temperatures of 40 degrees Celsius and above. Broadland Radiators were able to design and fabricate a bespoke cooling package that allows us to have confidence in the integrity of our equipment in tough conditions as well as staying within the limits of Zone 2 hazardous area requirements.”
Broadland Radiators designs and manufactures bespoke radiators for all brands of industrial engines. Its principal market is within the oil and gas sector where engines are used to power well service equipment, such as air compressors, cementing units, generator sets, powerpacks, pumps or cranes.
Broadland Radiators has worked with almost all engine makes and models including MTU, Caterpillar, Volvo, Cummins and more, providing the flexibility of design required both for the oil and gas industry and other applications. The company also has a team of engineers certified for working on offshore production and drilling installations.
