Oil, Gas & Energy
Utilizing aging offshore installations at maximum production capacity for months at a time takes a massive toll equipment and components. Service life extension is vital to profitability and there is little tolerance for periodic downtime. With proven service life extension results, UIT is an integral part of a mature asset integrity management plan.
Progress Rail's UIT offers a portable, easy to use, cost-effective solution which will extend fatigue life, improve structural integrity, and achieve cost-cutting, productivity-increasing results.
Read about how UIT was used to reset fatigue life to ZERO and achieve 15 year operational life extension on the Noble Ton van Langeveld Semi-Submersible Drilling Rig in the North Sea.
Progress Rail’s UIT is a maintenance manager’s ideal solution. From draglines to haulage trucks, shakers to conveyors, UIT makes weld repairs last longer. Way longer. Fewer repairs mean less downtime and reduced cost. UIT technical support teams are on-call to provide insight into how UIT can provide the greatest value and treat high stress areas onsite.
Shipbuilding & Transportation
From crankshafts and brake rotors to structural weldments, Progress Rail’s UIT offers solutions that have never been available before to the Transportation industry. As new, lighter and stronger materials are being developed for use in Transportation, UIT enables improvements in design to reduce weight and fuel consumption.
Aerospace & Defense
Components in the military and aviation are challenged every day by some of the most extreme, demanding and severe environments in the world. Since lives depend on the reliability of these components, maintaining peak performance is a top priority. Frequently, equipment maintenance must be performed away from home and under less than ideal conditions. Progress Rail’s UIT provides a portable solution to impart compressive stresses in damaged components, increase the life of fatigue-limited components, increase material hardness and inhibit corrosion.
Progress Rail first treated a highway bridge in 1995. In the ensuing decade, this business has expanded to a dozen states, thanks to outstanding results in various research initiatives from leading authorities such as the U.S. Federal Highway Administration, Lehigh University, the University of Texas, Stuttgart University and others. Progress Rail's UIT has been shown to extend the life of bridges and other structures by a number of decades. UIT offers a portable solution that’s fast, easy to use and has been added to the codes that govern bridge maintenance.
