Engineering

We provide a comprehensive engineering package for design, calculation, manufacture, installation and commissioning of new build equipment. Utilising experienced hydraulics engineers, we offer a dedicated service that is complimentary to the wider engineering capabilities of our customers. 

We welcome all bespoke application enquiries or unique challenges that require technically innovative solutions. As we are 100% dedicated to hydraulics we are able to provide a cost effective and time efficient service to achieve your project goals. Services offered include:

  • Hydraulic design from principle of operation
  • Calculations and component selection
  • Technical expertise and consultancy
  • Innovation and R&D co-operation
  • System assembly and commissioning
  • Project management
  • 3D hydraulic pipe routing
  • Electrical and controls

 

Hydraulic power units

We will design and manufacture hydraulic power units to suit your specifications. As a responsive, engineer lead company, we are able to accommodate bespoke requirements whilst maintaining fast turn-around and cost competitiveness.

Our workshop facilities enable us to assemble systems with a power range of 7.5kW-500kW[jd1] , fully tested at our facility. We design to both industrial onshore and offshore requirements – relishing the different challenges faced in each sector. The range of typical offshore system features include:

  • IP rated stainless steel enclosures
  • Hazardous Area / ATEX compliant components
  • Stainless steel tank and fittings
  • Offshore paint system
  • DNV 2.7-1 certified frame
  • Seawater / marine environment compatible cooling systems

Many operators have come to accept the hazards and operating costs associated with running standard hydraulic power units due to the lack of available time to specify or procure bespoke systems. At TME, we continually update our designs with the latest technologies and apply design improvements from each project to the next. Available system improvements include:

  • Reduced noise and vibration
  • Reduced power consumption
  • Improved cooling efficiency
  • Improved fluid conditioning
  • Elimination of leak points
  • Space and weight saving

We would be delighted to offer you an improved solution for your system, whether you are looking to design a new application or upgrade or replace existing units.

Bespoke equipment

TME Hydraulics is able to undertake the complete or partial scope of work for the design, manufacture and commissioning of bespoke equipment including test rigs and functional prototypes. 

We have experience of working with a wide range of industries to develop new technologies including Renewable Energy, Subsea, Defence and Aerospace.  The examples of challenges undertaken include:

  • Active heave compensation systems
  • Variable load test rigs
  • Sea state simulators
  • Fatigue test rigs
  • Combined test and flushing rigs
  • Hydraulic ring main

The scope of our involvement can include any or all of the following services:

  • Design and specification of components
  • Bespoke hydraulic system assembly
  • Control panels and manifolds
  • Electrical control system integration
  • Factory acceptance testing
  • On-site commissioning

 

System design

TME Hydraulics provides a full design and project management service based on understanding your application needs and performance specifications.

Our design engineers have experience with open and closed loop circuit design and maintain up-to-date knowledge of hydraulic components and new technologies. Our design service can include the specification and integration of components or modules manufactured by other suppliers. Design outputs include:

  • Hydraulic calculations
  • Hydraulic schematic and parts list
  • General arrangement drawings
  • 3D CAD model
  • Electrical control system design
  • ATEX certification

 

Hydraulic manifolds

We recognise that many new and existing hydraulic system designs can be improved by the use of bespoke manifold blocks in the place of traditional valve stacks and assemblies. When correctly designed the benefits are seen not only in the neatness of the original equipment but in the subsequent reliability and ease of diagnostic testing.

We can supply cost effective manifolds to suit your existing circuit or we can provide a full design service. The advantages of using bespoke manifolds include:

  • Compact design enables space saving
  • Reduced number of connections eliminating common hydraulic leak points
  • Multiple test points allow for system investigations and monitoring
  • Cost saving

 

Manifold Block Design

Experience and skilled engineers specialising in bespoke manifold design consolidate multiple valve stacks into a compact leak free manifold. Manifolds are designed using 3D CAD programs allowing interface connections to be easily checked and aligned and ensuring rapid and effective transfer from design to manufacture.

 

Certification

Manifold blocks can be supplied with full certificates of conformity, pressure test and 3.1 material certification. We are familiar with coating and painting procedures to meet offshore operating requirements and will always work in accordance with client project specifications.

Technical support

TME is able to support your hydraulic equipment and system troubleshooting beyond standard maintenance requirements. Specialist hydraulic engineers are available to provide expert interventions working alongside your engineers or as independent contractors.

We undertake work on third party systems offering independent advice and working with you to ensure existing systems operate to your expectations. Our typical work scopes include:

  • Commissioning of hydraulic / electro-hydraulic systems
  • Fault finding investigations
  • Upgrading of systems to meet new operational demands
  • Complex design and application problem solving
  • Assessment of system efficiency
  • Optimisation of operations
  • Preventative maintenance planning
  • Training of system operators

Training

Where generic hydraulic training courses do not provide the depth and detail of learning required, we will work with you to provide detailed technical training in industrial hydraulics.

Training is delivered via In Situ – in a convenient manner via web casts and online learning to suit the compressed timetables of hydraulic professionals. Trainers are selected from an international pool of hydraulic engineers to ensure that teaching is relevant and specific to the subject and experience level of the trainees.

Both standard and bespoke course requirements can be accommodated. Examples of courses offered include:

  • Installation and adjustment of hydraulic equipment
  • Preventive maintenance on hydraulic equipment
  • Troubleshooting on hydraulic equipment
  • Hydraulic system design

 

To gain maximum benefit from training sessions your hydraulic system requirements and specifications can be submitted to the trainers in advanced for use within the training modules.
