5500m2 Heatric (division of Meggitt UK Limited) are an established manufacturer in the oil/gas and power generation industries operating from unique multi-disciplined facilities in Poole, Dorset. Heatric provide a wide range of design, manufacturing, assembly, testing and site services to many diverse and high integrity industries. Our core expertise lies in the ability to provide a flexible service for the provision of bespoke fabrications and fully coded welding in a range of stainless steel and high grade alloys Fully accredited operating systems are reinforced by our engineering team, highly skilled in consistently delivering projects safely, to tight deadlines and within budget constraints. OHAS 18001 - ISO14001 - ISO 9001, UKAS - Fit 4 Nuclear (10/02/2017) – ASME U Stamp – PED - DNV GL - LR Ships Rules - Achilles JQS Heatric are part of the Meggitt Group who are a FTSE 250 company, our mission is to become an established supplier to the nuclear sector, we believe our capabilities and experience supplying to major clients in the oil/gas and petrochemical industries will enable us to meet the requirements of both new build and decommissioning projects Description of current product/services:- Design and manufacture of printed circuit heat exchangers, Heatric units are manufactured by a unique solid-state process known as 'diffusion bonding’. This process creates an exchanger core with no joints, welds or points of failure, resulting in a unit combining exceptional strength and integrity with high efficiency and performance. This allows us to create a unit up to 85% smaller and lighter than traditional technologies such as shell and tube exchangers. The majority of heat exchangers produced by Heatric are more commonly known as Printed Circuit Heat Exchangers or 'PCHEs'. Our PCHE exchangers have been a well-established technology in the upstream hydrocarbon processing, petrochemical and refining industries for many years with customers such as Petrobras, BP, Shell and ExxonMobil using them widely in multiple applications around the world. The products we manufacture are predominately stainless steel and other high alloy materials, we are experts in deep section welding techniques Capabilities: Mig, Tig & Sub Arc Welding - 45 Multi-skilled Coded welders - 10 Apprentice Welders - K-Tig Automated Welding – TWI advise our welders are qualified in the top 5% of the UK supply chain.
