Extent of Supply

Dove Thermal Engineering supplies turn-key piped services for process plant and works services, providing certificated installations in all steel and non-ferrous grades, and in proprietary plastics systems. We apply stress reduction techniques in the design and construction of thermal fluid and steam distribution systems, and in the repair or extensions to existing runs.

After schematic design, a pipework installation is laid-out as a solid 3D isometric, which may then be marked-up for stresswork computation and confirmation of line component specifications according to process conditions or site circumstances. Pipework design drawings are anotated with temperatures, masses, forces and movements to enable calculation and pre-stressing of supports. General Arrangements are made for each pipe section, enabling off-site prefabrication and trial set-up, or making-up on site as appropriate. Pressures and flows are spreadsheeted for rating line fittings and equipment, and designs vetted for defects such as air-lock, hammer and stress concentration.

Pipework design and systems projects are developed using AutoCAD-MathCAD integration software. Pressure vessels, tanks and special equipment are designed and fabricated in-house. Turn-key piped services installations are complete with electrical panels, structural steels, insulation and cleading.
We are regularly called-upon for pumped systems troubleshooting and rectification, and have a completely successful record in restoring and protecting works services & manufacturing output. Our site consultancy recommendations are backed by partnered pipefitting services throughout the U.K.
