(cold bending) on the most up-to-date CNC bending machines. Parker onsite containers are an

interesting solution for manufacturing on site. T ey contain all the assembly machines that are needed for tubes from 6mm to 60mm diameter and, on request, up to 273mm. All the fi ttings and connectors available from Parker can be processed on these high-precision machines. T is bending, cutting and cleaning machinery is supplemented by an equipment package that is essential for installation on site. From a business point of view on-site containers can be purchased or rented. In the preparation and assembly of complex tube and fl ange systems, cleanliness is the highest priority after safety. Residues in a system can have fatal results. Parker hot oil fl ushing units are an additional service for cleaning tubing systems before they are connected to the main consumer. T ey increase the safety of the complete system and contribute to a reduction of maintenance costs. T e fl ushing medium is mineral hydraulic oil, which is pumped through the lines with a fl ow rate of 3,000 l/min at a pressure of 75 bar (adjustable). T e fl ushing units can also be used for pressure testing up to 630 bar and have a tank capacity of 6,000 litres. When the work is completed, the cleanness of the tubing system is documented by a Parker service technician on site. Processing and assembly by “piping

partners” off ers a further alternative. T e user has the advantage that they will be helped with procurement, processing and assembly anywhere on the planet


Parker onsite containers contain the assembly machines for tubes from 6mm to 60mm diameter

by this close network of piping partners. T ese suppliers are certifi ed by Parker so that the customer has the assurance that a competent and reliable supplier is standing alongside. T is service segment is rounded off

by the Parker Maritime Service off ering. At fi rst glance they are very scientifi c - but in practice, exciting - tasks with which the team supports its customers. Measurements under the surface, sub-sea metrology, are carried out with the help of photogrammetry. T e experts create photos and precision mapping images with special cameras, that enable the spatial location of the three-dimensional form of an object to be determined. T is technology is used amongst others for the salvaging of wrecks. For on-board technology, complementing the global GNSS navigation satellite system, Parker off ers a special 3D reference system with which ships can at all times be held exactly on course. T e coordinates system of this technology is based on the centre-line of the ship, the rudder-post and the

reference plane arranged on the main deck. T e experts are also on site when it is a question of precise mapping of the sea bottom. T is procedure is an important prerequisite when choosing locations for wind turbines (monopiles) and connection components, including their installation. T e PMS position monitoring system is an important tool. For the off shore loading of oil this technology supports safe, trouble-free media transportation from ship to ship.

All in all, with its many worldwide

service centres, components precisely matched to each other and systems from a single supplier, and with its experience in developing tailored, customer-specifi c solutions, the Parker service programme constitutes an attractive alternative to in- house solutions. ●
