Manoir industries, specialized in the supply of valve bodies & components for the oil & gas applications, broadens its supply portfolio by integrating a final machining operation.
These valve bodies and components such as valve bonnets, are made of stainless steel and duplex steel. From 1’’ to 16’’, and ranking from 10 to 500 kg, these parts are molded, cast, and QC inspected at the Manoir Pîtres plant, Manoir Industries subsidiary, thanks to a high tech equipment and a qualified team.
The rough machining operations has been also performed internally. The main operations were consisting of turning, and milling.
To match a tight delivery schedule imposed by the project, Manoir Pitres had to seek for outside machining capacities for some parts, in order to obtain the required roughness, perform the extra drilling, threading, etc, specified by the “machining to final shape” demand. The selected subcontractor was of course previously audited and qualified.
This order was made possible thanks to the Norsok certification, awarded to Manoir Industries to supply 4A duplex castings and 6A Super Duplex.
Norsok qualification is the reward of a know-how and metallurgical expertise. This qualification is a “must have” for North Sea oil & gas fields, but not only: it tends also to become a standard regardless of the final destination of the parts.
