Stourflex were first contacted to look at the thermal expansion in the pipework. Stourflex were sent drawings of the pipe layout and provided a design to accommodate the thermal expansion using our JP113 and JP116VS axial expansion joints, JP150 slide guides and JP172 channel anchors. We also provided our JP02 rubber bellows to accommodate vibration from the pumps.
It was during the pipework design stage that Stourflex enquired about the rooftop supports. Dodd Group were keen so invited us for a site visit. During this meeting Stourflex were informed of the plant that required supporting. Stourflex offered standard frames, HD frames and an I beam support. Stourflex also offered an install for the frames.
Once all drawings a load calculations were signed off an order was placed for the frames and for Stourflex to provide an installation.
Stourflex have also provided after sales supports including further site visits to look at both the frames and the pipe expansion.Get in touch
