ON-SITE SERVICES

It is crucial that the pipe system runs smoothly without the risk of unexpected, problematic and costly shutdowns. To achieve a trouble free and reliable operation, all of the components of the system must be well managed including the expansion joints. To obtain the maximum benefit from an expansion joint, it is not only important to consider its design and construction features, but also its function as part of the overall pipe system design. Further, key issues which critically affect performance are the location of the expansion joints in the system, its correct installation and planned inspections during its service life. Having carefully considered these factors, we have extended our core
competences from the design and manufacture of expansion joints to services such as:

  • Installation of expansion joints
  • Installation of Clamshell Bellows
  • Repair/refurbishment
  • Inspection
  • Engineering service

These services are performed by our worldwide on-site service team and engineering team. The team is experienced in all industries and available to respond to urgent requests. We also service expansion joints that were not of our original manufacture.

Ensuring savings and effective solutions

Repair of the existing expansion joint/-s is often more effective than buying a completely new unit. Replacement of wearing parts such as the bellows in an expansion joint can be the most efficient solution that ensures both cost savings and an extended service life. For example, repairs to the bellows of an existing unit can deliver almost the same service life as a completely new expansion joint. Belman undertakes repair and refurbishment work both on-site and in our workshop. Our engineers are always ready to advise on the most efficient solution.

THE ON-SITE SERVICE TEAM

Belman has a on-site service team of several assigned welders. In case the project demand more resources, we have additional skilled welders in our workshop that are qualified to join the on-site service team.

Certificates
The on-site service team members have extensive experience in working on-site worldwide and in various industries. They are certified for welding according to ASME IX, EN 287 and EN 1418. Furthermore, they are certified to operate overhead travelling cranes and forklift trucks. The welder certificates can be forwarded upon request as part of the welding documentation.

Safety
The on-site service team members attend courses in first aid, and due to previous project demands, they have attended several additional safety courses, helping them to comply easily with any safety requirements mandated by clients.

VCA approval
Our on-site service team is of course VCA certified, which is mandatory in the petrochemical industry in countries such as Germany, the Netherlands and Belgium.

Flame Resistant Clothing
All clothing worn by the on-site service team makes use of flame retardant/antistatic materials especially designed for the purpose and according to the relevant standards: EN 1149-5, EN 11611, EN 11612 and EN 61482-1.

Equipment
All standard equipment needed for an installation/replacement job is packed and available for immediate use in our on-site service container. This ensures that the on-site service team can be available and ready to work on-site within short notice.
