A company who heat treat large pipes for the North Sea Offshore Industry have recently completed a new project in collaboration with Authorised Fenner Distributor ERIKS UK.

The project involved designing a hardness testing machine so that each pipe could be individually tested and certified. ERIKS' experts proposed a solution, based around the Fenner product range, relying on Fenner's 150 years of experience and proven quality.

The final machine consisted of a rail mounted bogey, which delivers the pipe into the testing area. The bogey wheels are driven by a Fenner Cyclo gear motor unit, Fenner PLUS Chain and Sprockets. Precise speed control is ensured with the inclusion of a Fenner QD:E IP55 inverter.

The hardness testing head is raised and lowered by a chain drive mounted in a frame which consists of a Fenner Series M geared motor unit, QD:E IP55 Inverter and Fenner Plus Chain and Sprockets.

It was of great importance that the machine is mobile at all times. Therefore, it was designed to operate on a single phase supply to the inverters which then converted the supply to 3 phase for the Fenner gear motors.

The hardness machine is now fully operational and working to its full potential and the customer is pleased with the Fenner products performance.
