Plant operators face known and unknown risks concerning the integrity of their assets, especially at the touchpoints.
Corrosion And Erosion At The Touchpoints
Reactive vs planned maintenance
Traditional reactive maintenance approaches to touchpoint corrosion are problematic because they push aside planned maintenance and often result in emergency work outside of turnarounds. Reactive maintenance is also more costly than planned maintenance because repairs require time to diagnose, budget and execute.
The Ovolifts solution enables operators to address touchpoint corrosion on a planned basis on in-service pipes before they become critical and result in an emergency shutdown, extended turnaround or a line replacement.
Safely address corrosion under pipe supports
Ovolifts' unique and patented technology allows access to multiple work areas whilst the equipment is in-service, giving plant engineers and contractors critical information on pipe condition and access to perform maintenance.
Why is this so valuable? Because it enables a plant to advance their pipe and cable rack maintenance programs from reactive to planned footings.
Reactive maintenance pushes aside planned maintenance and often results in emergency work outside of plant turnarounds. It is also costlier because emergency repairs are difficult to diagnose, budget and execute, whereas planned maintenance tasks are less work intensive.
Overview of our lifting equipment
We have three purpose-built tools designed for three unique lifting scenarios, the common denominator across the tools is the use of the same lifting arrangement which is patent protected.
Our Mega-Jack is the only system in the market capable of lifting very large pipes resting on ground-level supports. To execute this lift otherwise would require a crane at a substantially higher cost. It is also capable in its minimum configuration of lifting 20 tons of multiple pipes on a rack from one pipe support.
The Multi-Jack is a lighter, more versatile and easier to handle device for lifting an entire pipe rack or selected pipes from a support.
The Uni-Jack is used to lift individual pipes and is exceptionally light and quick to install.
