Intertec has been selected by Sadara Chemical Company to provide environmental protection cabinets and shelters that will protect the field-based process analyzers at the new Sadara petrochemical complex in the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia. The outdoor cabinets will be constructed from high-performance grades of glass reinforced polyester (GRP). This will provide long-term protection against the region's extreme climatic conditions, as well as the corrosion threats posed by the process media and salty sea air.
The key technical reasons behind the selection of Intertec's enclosure technology are the performance of the GRP-based construction materials used and the company's turnkey manufacturing capability.
The enclosures required range in size from small cabinets suitable for housing a single analyzer, to shelters as large as 11 x 3 m, which can accommodate 10 or more analyzers. The cabinets are being designed and manufactured at two of Intertec's global facilities, in Sarnia, Canada and Neustadt, Germany. Deliveries to the instrumentation OEMs involved in the Sadara project started in Q1, 2013.
