KTH sets up Hire Services Division

Hydraulic specialist KT Hydraulics has set up a new hire division at its Halifax head office to manage the loan of its new flushing, measurement and pressure testing equipment.

In launching, KT Hire Services has already gained ISO9001 accreditation under the Lloyds Register for flushing and pressure testing of offshore and marine hydraulics systems.

The new company has also invested over £100,000 in the latest flushing technology, capable of flushing to the highest NAS and ISO standards. Additionally, KT Hire Services will loan out complementary measurement and pressure testing equipment on either a short or long-term basis to shipyards, offshore operators and process industries.

KT Hydraulics managing director, Richard Ellis says: “With the basis of our business being in the design, supply and installation of hydraulics systems to the marine and offshore industry, we have always seen the logic in setting up a flushing and pressure testing division.

“However we recognised that to carry it out properly, it was necessary to achieve the top quality standards for the service – right from its outset. The top quality award and the investment in new technologies should give KT Hire Services the best possible start.”

Investments in flushing technology include seven flushing rigs of varying sizes, microscopic and particle counter analysis equipment, pressure chart recorders, the training of operators and all associated hoses and sundries.

Flushing is carried out in the marine, offshore and large-scale process industries when hydraulics and water glycol systems are being overhauled or commissioned. The flushing, filtration and cleaning of oil and fluids in the systems and the associated testing of them, helps to maximise their reliability and to minimise maintenance and system failures.

The ISO standard for flushing and pressure testing is additional to the company’s ISO9001 standard it holds for its other activities. As specialists in the design and manufacture of complex hydraulic systems KT Hydraulics has built a world-wide reputation for its work in the shipping and offshore energy industry and its engineers are currently engaged on projects across the globe. The full range of work covered by KT Hydraulics includes such diverse industries as food, oil and gas, marine and even Formula One motor racing with products including valves, flow meters and pumps.
