Stationary Equipment

stationary equipment banner 1Stationary equipment is a general classification of mechanical equipment that does not move.  Depending on the company it may be called "fixed equipment”, "static equipment” or "stationary equipment”.

Stationary equipment refers to machinery or equipment that remains fixed in place during operation and is not designed to be moved from one location to another.  This type of equipment is commonly used in various industries, including manufacturing, construction, and energy.

Stationary equipment may be powered by electricity, natural gas, oil, or other fuels.  They may also require various types of maintenance, such as regular inspections, cleaning, and replacement of parts or components.  It is important to follow manufacturer recommendations and safety guidelines when operating and maintaining stationary equipment to prevent accidents, equipment failure, or other safety hazards.  Proper installation and setup of stationary equipment is also essential for ensuring safe and efficient operation.  This may include tasks such as anchoring equipment to a stable foundation, providing appropriate ventilation or exhaust systems, and connecting equipment to appropriate power sources and control systems.

Stationary Equipment

  • Fastener  -  The primary function a fastener is to join two or more components together.  They are used in a variety of applications, such as in construction, aerospace, automotive, and electronics.  Joining with a fastener can be non-permanent or permanent.  The joined components can easily be separated without damaging the joint in the former one and the joint gets damaged or reduces the strength in case of later one.
  • Filtration  -  A mechanical process to separate solids from liquid or gas. This can be accomplished by gravity or vacuum, where the solids pass through a medium letting only the liquid or gas through. The finer the medium, the cleaner the result. Filtration is the first part of the process. The second is the collection of the separated material, which can either be disposed of or used for another purpose.
  • Furnace  -  A furnace is a piece of equipment that provides direct electric or fired heat for industrial processes that require high temperatures. Many industrial processes require heating for the preparation of materials for production or the completion of an application.
  • Gasket  -  A material that is used to seal the face of flanges, valves and equipment.  Gaskets can be made from materials that are soft or hard, but will compress to make a tight seal.  When compressed between two flange faces it will deform to match the surface grooves and irregularities.  A gasket must be installed properly to prevent leakage.
  • Meter -  A device used to measure the rate of flow or quantity of a fluid (liquid or gas) that passes through a particular point in a system. 
  • Pipe  -  Pipe is a hollow tube that can carry products such as fluid, gas, granular and more.  Pipe is identified by nominal pipe size and the wall thickness identified by schedule number.
  • Pipe Fitting  -  Fitting is a piping component that is used to join piping, change the direction or diameter of piping or end the pipe. They are a versatile piping component which are necessary in modern piping system.
  • Pipe Flange  -  A bolted connection where two pieces of pipe, equipment, fittings or valves are connected together to form a piping system.  Flanges provide access for when equipment (or piping) needs to be cleaned, inspected or reconfigured.   A flange pair is made up of two flanges and a gasket with bolts and nuts.  Pipe flanges come in different styles, pressure ratings, materials and sizes to meet the design requirements.
  • Pipeline Accessories  -  Pipeline accessories are additional components or devices that are used to enhance, control, or support the operation of pipelines.  These accessories play various roles in pipeline systems, ranging from safety and monitoring to maintenance and operational efficiency.
  • Pressure Vessel  -  Designed to hold or contain process fluids, liquids or gas, at a pressure significantly higher or lower than the ambient pressure, either internally or externially.  Each pressure vessel must be operated within it's design temperature and pressure, which is the vessel's safety limits.  These vessels serve many functions.  They can used for storage of high pressure gas, gas scrubbers, two and three phase separators and other functions.
  • Storage Tank  -  Storage tanks are used to store volumes of fluids for storage or as part of a process.  There are various types of materials used to manufacture the tanks.  The fundamental materials to build storage tanks vary depending on the type of material that you store.  Suppose your factory or manufacturing unit requires the storing of bulk chemical substances or fluids at various stages of the refinery process.  In that case, you need to avoid potential hazards and losses.  Storage tanks come in a number of shapes and sizes.
  • Valve  -  A mechanism used to stop or open and regulate flow.  The type of valve used depends on the application. In general, there are valves used for on-off (open-closed) applications, and throttling valves which can adjust flow. All valves fall into two basic types: stop valves and check valves.
