Hexagon Digital Wave signs new equipment and service agreement with Linde
July 29, 2021 - Press Release
Hexagon Digital Wave, a business of Hexagon Composites has signed an agreement with Linde, a leading industrial gas and engineering company. The agreement covers the supply and service of Ultrasonic Examination (UE) testing equipment.
The estimated total value of the agreement is USD 2 million (approx. NOK 17 million) and designates Hexagon Digital Wave as a long-term partner.
Driving energy transformation
“We are excited to extend our relationship with the great team at Linde”, says Keith Fountain, UE international Sales Manager Hexagon Digital Wave. “Over the past 14 years we have provided our equipment to one of the market leaders in the industrial gas environment and helped to improve the safety of their cylinders.”
About the market
The non-destructive UE test and process enables the recertification of the cylinders without removing the internal product which improves the safety and allows a number of ESG requirements to be accomplished. Positive environmental impacts are accomplished by emitting less gas back to the atmosphere. In addition, since gas at pressure is not released it means that the user eliminates CO2 by not having to expend the energy to repressurize the product back into the cylinder.
The market continues to shift to the UE test for higher safety and testing efficiencies. With the ability to do a safer and more environmentally conscious test like UE this will have a continuous impact on the industry for years to come.
UE advantages include reduced labor to inspect cylinders, detection and analysis of suspected flaws, retention of gas product and elimination of re-pressurization energy.
“At Hexagon Digital Wave we understand the impacts of the contents of these pressurized cylinders and the responsibility that goes behind it. We believe strongly that the UE test is the best option for the industry moving forward,” concludes Fountain.
