Oil and Petrochemical

Drag Chains

Bennett's Engineering involvement with drag chain systems began with a request from a major jack up operation to visit an operating rig in the gulf of Mexico to witness the operation of an extremely old and rusted drag chain with a view to modernising the concept and incorporating the improvements as requested by the operating staff on the rig. Main function of a drag chain is to carry, guide and protect moving conduits in the form of electrical cables or transmission hoses.

Oil / Gas Piping Spools

This division of Bennett's Engineering was created in order to attract from the offshore oil industry based off Angola, the availability of having the fabrication in South Africa of specialised pipe spools from exotic material instead of relying on European and Far Eastern contractors specialising in this work. A concern effort was made with the cooperation of a Cape Town based third party inspection authority namely Avcape Inspection to design weld procedure qualifications to meet the demands of the offshore oil industry with regard to specialised piping spools.

Filter Screens

Rotary Screens

The rotary screen is a self-cleaning, internally fed unit. The cylindrical screen drum is fabricated from wedge wire screens which ensure a high level of solids capture compared to conventional screens. The effluent is either pumped or flows by gravity into a weir/surge tank located inside the screen drum. The rotary drum is ideally suited for high solid loading and flow rate applications normally associated with meat works, tanneries, pulp and paper, fish processing, sewage and others.

Static Screens

Static screens are custom designed to separate solids from liquids in various applications including food, sugar, pulp, paper and wastewater industries. The gravity-fed static screen design provides for effective dewatering and allows the solids to slide off the end of the screen surface into a skip for easy removal of the waste. The static screens are self-cleaning with no moving parts so therefore very low maintenance. Each modular parking system facility is custom designed according to the specific requirements of the installation site and with an extraordinary capacity to blend in with the environment. Regardless of architectural or landscape constraints, the foundationless, freestanding modular deck can be dismantled and relocated to an alternate site.
