Why APPI: The chemistry is complex but suffice it to say keeping a coker in operation in an oil refinery is a critical function that wreaks havoc on production when it’s not in service.
Jeffery French, a sales representative for Power Tool Specialties, came to us when one of his customers experienced a failure of a hoist lifting the shroud on one of their cokers. As he explained, the manufacturer that provided the hoist could not service or replace the unit within a reasonable time frame and his customer could not afford to wait.
The solution we created, he proposed, and his customer accepted, was to put three of our HR3-7000-P pneumatic coker hoists into service as he could source them faster and at a more attractive cost than he was given by his previous supplier. Based on the success of these units in service, plans are being made to replace an additional eight existing hoists with ours.
