Fluid collaboration in pipeline

Parker Instrumentation has awarded Aberdeen Fluid System Technologies a contract to connect instruments and interfacing equipment on it process lines.


The company will configure and provide application-specific solutions using Parker’s range of manifolds, valves and flanged products.



Gerry Farrell, managing director of Aberdeen Fluid System Technologies, said: ‘Skilled engineering resources are at a premium in the oil and gas industry, and there’s great demand for companies that are able to complement component supply with value-added services such as design support, component sourcing, and system building.’



Aberdeen Fluid System Technologies supplies manifold, valve and related instrumentation and process components to Scotland’s oil and gas and processing industries. Its supply engineering services are used by many of the region’s leading offshore and onshore operators, in support of maintenance, repair and operations (MRO) activities.



The companies will work alongside Parker’s longstanding associate Hydrasun, the largest provider of Parker products and associated solutions and services to the UK oil and gas industry.



Parker Instrumentation’s general manager, Ian Huggins said: ‘We have added many new manifold products to our range that support new levels of efficiency and reliability, but their potential has to be understood and designed in. We are delighted to enlist the help of Aberdeen Fluid System Technologies, with its strong engineering capability, to help us spread the message.



‘With the three companies working closely together, we can offer customers far more depth and experience and realise our goal of threadless and leak-free installations becoming standard.’
