Our latest products are making their way to Scotland and Wales

This week SynthoTrax was used by PMC to successfully survey a 18” main in Wales and West Utilities. The survey was to find 4” and 8” connections that were back-feeding the main. The super bright directional LED`s and the latest Titan pan and tilt camera gave crystal clear vision easily locating the connections. The low impact vertical launch added to the cost effectiveness of the whole job.

Synthotech Specialist Service Team helps investigation on 18” pipeline.

A previous high gas velocity incident had caused damage to one of the filters located on an 18” steel pipeline at a large High Pressure Above Ground Installation (AGI). The client suspected that debris from the damaged filter had travelled into other sections of the AGI pipework, but needed to be certain such that remedial works could be planned.

As part of its continued growth and expansion Synthotech moved to its new home at Milner Court, a mere 200metres from its previous location of 15 years at Crimple Court. The new Milner Court Campus has already increase available space by some 124%, and will finish by being just under 23,000ft2. Having settled into the new facility Synthotech are enjoying the benefits that the additional space provides through increase effectiveness and efficiency.

Buy now...pay later! Finance support now available.

We know not everyone has access to large lump sums of money, but that doesn't mean they shouldn't be able to purchase world-class products designed to reduce excavation by 50%. We also understand that it is in the interest of your business to have the latest technologies and tools NOW, not later. With this in mind, Synthotech have taken the step to assist those who want the best now, but might not have the full cash amount upfront.

Sharing knowledge to avoid meter resites - First Line Managers get to learn all about service replacement

Sharing knowledge to avoid meter resites - First Line Managers get to learn all about service replacement

As an industry, we need to avoid relocating gas meters when renewing services if at all possible. Not only does a meter resite cause additional inconvenience to the consumer, but also additional cost to the network owner. Last week, Synthotech delivered another FLM Awareness course to an engaging audience. The course is not product specific, and goes back to engineering first principles regarding pressure loss, various methods of lining metallic services, network policy, and health and safety. The session includes interactive demonstrations to show both good and bad installation techniques, and what can happen when procedures are not followed.
