PT. Dalaz Teknik Utama used a 12t capacity Radiolink plus Straightpoint (SP) load cell and a Crosby shackle of the same capacity to complete a series of tests during fabrication of a power generator module at a Wasco Energy fabrication yard in Indonesia.

PT. Dalaz Teknik Utama overcame limited access and a tight time schedule to complete over 200 force measurement tasks primarily related to lifting equipment, padeyes and monorails. The mechanical handling test and certification-based scope of work was delivered to the project as a floating production storage and offloading (FPSO) unit is prepared for work in the North Sea’s Kraken oilfield.

Each component of the main engine had to be weighed, including the turbo-charger (3,575kg), air cooler (610kg), cylinder head (1,250kg), piston (255kg) and camshaft gear wheel (685kg). The wide-ranging project also included painting of monorails, padeyes and the engine room gantry crane, while all lifting equipment had to be marked with the safe working load (SWL).

PT. Dalaz Teknik Utama, which delivered thorough reports to the customer using SP’s latest technology, is a specialist provider of inspection and certification services, chiefly to the oil and gas market. Founded in 2014, it primarily focuses on lifting activities and non-destructive testing. Force measurement technologies are a key component of day-to-day activities.

Dovi Suprayetno, country manager at Siaptek Indonesia, an SP distributor, said, “The demands placed upon a testing company by the oil and gas sector are widespread. Not only do we have to deliver our work in a hazardous environment, but we’re often put under increased pressure by access offshore, confined spaces and generally fitting in with the scheduling of a fast-moving sector.”

Suprayetno explained that SP, a Crosby company, is pioneering continued progression away from mechanical dial scales and the latest ATEX / IECEx products are perfectly suited to applications in the oil and gas market. The Radiolink plus, he said, boasts a separate internal sealed enclosure providing the load cell's electronic components with IP67 environmental protection even with the battery cover plate missing, making the dynamometer suitable for use in the harshest environments. It is SP’s best-selling product. In this case, measurements were taken on a wireless Hand Held plus.
