JEC Group have brought together the international community of composites leaders and executives in our Composites Circle as an unique networking opportunity to meet with both peers and future partners.
Element Materials Technology is to open a high pressure high temperature (HPHT) laboratory at Element Hitchin, UK, more than doubling its capacity in evaluating and qualifying materials for Oil & Gas sector clients.
The new laboratory features state-of-the-art, mobile control systems for monitoring pressure and temperature that have been designed and developed specifically for the new laboratory. Element Hitchin’s existing HPHT facilities have now been consolidated into a single purpose-designed facility, improving efficiency and customer lead times.
Rod Martin, Element’s Executive Vice President, Oil & Gas, says: “Element Hitchin is a world-leader in Oil & Gas non-metallic materials testing and product qualification. Doubling the number of pressure vessels within the facility will ensure that we continue to meet our Oil & Gas customers’ growing needs for non-metallic materials testing.”
Element Hitchin currently conducts various industry-recognized testing and qualification standards, including NORSOK M-710 for testing non-metallic (polymer) sealing and ISO 23936 parts one and two for qualifying non-metallic materials in equipment for Oil & Gas production environments.
