International Collaboration with Mechanical Coupling Specialist, Snap Ring Joint (SRJ)

EnerMech has signed a collaboration agreement with pipeline solutions specialist Snap Ring Joint (SRJ) to provide weld-free mechanical coupling products to international clients.

SRJ is a well-established pipe connection and repair solution provider to the energy sector and has pioneered disruptive technology in developing a suite of products which are compatible with all sizes of pipework.

Mechanical engineering group EnerMech’s in-country presence in the major oil and gas producing hubs will offer mutual benefits to clients of both companies as it rolls out SRJ couplings in Australia, Canada, Europe, Mexico, South Korea, UAE and USA.

EnerMech’s technical director, Phil Bentley, said: “Our objective across all of our business lines is to find new ways of reducing costs for clients but at the same time maintaining and improving the standard of safety and quality of service we provide.

“Working in partnership with SRJ is a great example of this approach as this agreement allows us to deliver a safer product compared to other market alternatives and one which is more cost effective.”

SRJ couplings are suitable as a direct replacement for standard flange type or welded connections to critical and non-critical piping connections and offer the practical benefits of a non-welded and ‘hot-work free’ connection without compromising connection integrity.

SRJ chief executive officer, Alex Wood, added: “Our partnership with EnerMech demonstrates the value of our product range and will help SRJ cement its position as the leading provider of weldless connectors to the energy sector.

“EnerMech’s commitment to providing a first class customer experience and reliable service provision mirrors our own ethos and this agreement is a big step forward in establishing SRJ couplings as the market leader in our field.”
