Production Fastening Systems Stud Welding and Fastening Solutions for Marine Projects
Production Fastening Systems (PFS) is an industry-leading provider of high-performance stud welding and metal fastening products for the oil and gas sector.
Our product range includes a variety of premium-quality metal fasteners, fastening systems, assemblies and related components, and we are committed to providing our worldwide customer base with consistently reliable customer service.
Pneumatic tube separation systems for offshore applications
PFS’s T-SEP™ Assembly solution has been carefully developed to prevent crevice corrosion, while simultaneously maintaining separation between pneumatic tube delivery systems.
Parallel lengths of pneumatic tubing have traditionally been separated via ‘saddles’ or ‘notching’, which despite being effective for separation purposes can allow corrosive elements to gather either at points separation or beneath the tubes themselves.
The unique design of our T-SEP Assembly system eliminates corrosive elements from the tubing before any damage is caused, making the solution a safe and highly efficient method of pneumatic tube separation.
Our innovative T-SEP Assembly technology was initially launched in 2000 and has since been revised to include various additions and improvements to ensure consistently optimal results.
The latest version is non-metallic variant that has been developed to maintain a 3in-16in separation within the tubes, which has proven to achieve a significant reduction in crevice corrosion by mitigating metal-to-metal contact within the tubing networks.
Slotted cable hangers for oil and gas sites
PFS’s extensive product catalogue comprises arc stud and capacitor discharge stud welders, tube separation assemblies and weld studs, as well as cable hangers and other solutions.
This diverse product range allows the company to address customers’ wide-ranging welding and fastening needs.
We have introduced several pioneering products to the market throughout our 30 years of operation, including PFS SLP-type pneumatic tube supports, pneumatic channel brackets (PTCB) and advanced grating fasteners.
Our best-selling product, the PFS slotted cable hanger, has amassed a ‘zero rejection’ reputation since its launch in 1991.
