Dry Chemical Skids for Leading Deepwater Drilling Company

Dry Chemical Skid Units manufactured and delivered to leading UK-based deepwater drilling company.

The Dry Chemical fire suppression systems were charged with Purple-K Agent, effective for fighting Class B (flammable liquids) and can be used to combat electrically charged equipment fires.  The 1500 lb. ASME Code 2-HR systems were finished with Burner’s corrosion resistant coatings package and located on the driller’s semi-submersible platforms located offshore Gulf of Mexico.  Systems can be discharged by a single operator, and because the units are completely self contained, no piping or external connections are needed.

These DCP Deck Systems are composed on several strategically placed self-contained skid units. The skid systems can be configured with hose reels mounted on the unit in addition remote hose reels.
