INTERTEC has developed special fabrication techniques over decades for creating tough and durable cabinets and shelters for harsh operating environments such as oil, gas and chemical processing plants. We typically employ GRP sandwich constructions with inner and outer skins enclosing cores of insulating PU foam. This construction technique combines both strength and rigidity with a high degree of environmental protection.
Three construction principles: BASIC , CLASSIC and the versatile ARCTIC shelter allow us to build cabinets and shelters of almost very size and strength to satisfy the spectrum of operating conditions and climates. The standard products can be customized in many ways to provide particular performance attributes.
The outer skins of INTERTEC’s instrument enclosures are fabricated using long glass fiber reinforced polyester (GRP). The material is manufactured using a variety of processes including sheet moulded compound (SMC), resin transfer moulding (RTM), continuously-made sheeting, pulltrusion, or hand lamination to suit the range of field protection applications. This high-tech material offers superb strength, weight and corrosion resistance advantages when fabricating enclosures and shelters for harsh operating environments.
Larger cabinets and shelters can employ sandwich constructions with inner and outer skins enclosing cores of lightweight insulating PU foam – a construction ensuring strength and rigidity and a very high degree of environmental protection. Alternative fire resistant core materials allow fire safe properties. Double sandwich designs are possible as well as inner or outer skins from other materials such as aluminium sheet or stainless steel
Whatever protection your equipment needs, INTERTEC already has a solution – or will produce one for you. And you can rest assured that our products are fit for purpose. Many of our specialists have a decade or more of experience in designing and configuring field protection systems
