Located in Dyce, Precision Pumping and Metering are no strangers to meeting the arduous demands of the local offshore sector. ‘Injecting life into the oil and gas industry’, PPM have been supplying chemical injection equipment, offshore surveys and maintenance and repair for offshore projects for over 10 years.

Now, following a partnership with Flowhire Ltd – the UK’s leading flow meter hire specialists as well as their chemical injection skids, PPM can offer a wide range of flow meters to hire from stock, ready to ship on a same or next day service. Flowhire, who are celebrating their 20th year in business offer a wide range of flowmeters covering virtually all measurement applications, and with two decades of experience in supplying flow meter rental, technical support is always on hand should it be required.

Flowhire’s Technical Director Matt Bancroft said “Flowhire has been successfully supplying the Aberdeen Oil and Gas Industry for 20 years but having a stock-holding in Aberdeen will enable us to serve our customers faster. We have always had a great relationship with the team at PPM and trust them to still offer the same standards of service that our customers adhere to. PPM make sure every system is supplied pre-configured for use, and supplied with transit or crash frames if required for ease of transportation. Our customers can rest assured that they are getting the same great service at the same great price”

Flowhire’s wide range of flow meters to hire for the oil and gas industry include the popular Promass O Coriolis flow meter which is ATEX Zone 1 certified and is capable for liquids and gases up to 258 bar and 200ºC – ideal for pipeline dewatering, pigging and purging. For pressure testing, Flowhire’s 1502 high pressure turbine flow meter is specifically designed for demanding offshore applications, the body is machined from alloy A286 and the high yield strength allows it to be used at extremely high pressures.

Other meters available from PPM include meters for fire hydrant testing – essential on oil rigs to ensure the safety of both assets and personnel, and clamp on non-invasive flow meters, which are easy to use and quickly attached for pump performance testing and flow surveys.

Stuart Wood, Director of Precision Pumping said “It is great to have Flowhire on board, their range of flow meters perfectly complement our chemical injection rental model, where speedy response and personal customer service are paramount”
