Pressure Vessels Heat exchangers & Tanks -
Forsyth’s Ltd is the fabrication arm of the Forsyth Group based in the North East of Scotland. Established in 1890 the business has continually evolved to meet the changing demands of technology but still prides itself in its history for providing a high quality product and service. They have various fabrication sheds over four sites (Rothes, Aberdeen, Caithness & Buckie) The latter - quayside facility, is used for both fabrication and skid unit assembly and allows direct load-out to the Buckie harbour. This is a key consideration when it comes to ease of transportation of the larger fabricated items.
The two main areas of business are now in the Oil and Gas and Alcoholic beverage industries.
In the oil and gas sector they offer full process design and manufacture a wide range of equipment in numerous different grades of material. Typical fabrications include structural steelwork, piping, pressure vessels (ASME U Stamp), umbilical/pipe reels and tanks. Together with their E&I and coatings group companies they can also provide a complete in house solution for preassembled skid units.
Work in the alcoholic beverage industry varies from the supply of distillation equipment only to turn-key distillery design and build, plant upgrade or expansion projects. They provide equipment and solutions to both domestic and international markets for beer, wine and spirit producers.
Typical Vessels include:-
∙ Knock Out Drums ∙ Separators ∙ Hydrocyclones ∙ Filter Vessels
∙ Deaerators ∙ Coalescers ∙ Reactors ∙ Shell and Tube Exchangers
∙ Distillation Columns ∙ Pig Launchers ∙ Desanding Vessels
These can be supplied in a wide range of materials including Carbon Steel ,Low Temperature Carbon Steel, Copper and it’s alloys, Cupro Nickel, Stainless Steels, Duplex, Super Duplex, Monel, Hastelloy and Titanium.
Forsyth’s are committed to providing high quality products, while meeting customer’s requirements, aligned with robust quality, health, safety and environmental management systems throughout the company’s engineering and manufacturing operations.
