Sentinel Gas Systems, England
Coventry Specialist Gas System Installer
The capability of welding equipment refurbishment suppliers, Westermans International Ltd., has now helped specialist gas system installers, Sentinel Gas Systems, enhance its services to a range of industries.
Westermans has supplied two AMI 207 orbital welding units to Sentinel enabling the organisation to optimise both its on-site service and also its clean room facility at its Coventry premises.
The move is the latest in a series of Westermans units purchased by Sentinel and brings key advantages to the company’s customers, as Sales Director, Stephen Kane explains
Tube welding of the highest Quality
The company services include gas system design and manufacturing, Installation and project management, Orbital Welding, Service and Maintenance, Mass Spectrometer Helium Leak Testing, commissioning and customer training, a series of application needs in industries as diverse as automotive, pharmaceutical and research and, in all cases, we design systems that can handle gas supplies up to 300 bar – often of a hazardous or toxic nature,” says Steven Kane, Director at the company. “In many cases, this calls for tube welding of the highest quality, which has pointed us towards the AMI units and the services available from Westermans International.”
Extensive stockholding to meet operations of Sentinel
The AMI orbital welders ensure clean, consistent results are achieved with the added benefit of a memory function that enables the unit to retain up to 100 welding programmes. This has a clear beneficial impact on repeatability, helping to optimise high quality results every time, and is central to the AMI 207 being able to meet a long list of industry standards.
The ability to supply the two AMI 207 units from our extensive stockholding to meet the operational requirements of Sentinel was very important. As with all equipment we supply, the two systems in this case were fully serviced with key operational parts fitted as new and were supplied with full training and access to spares and maintenance operations. With equipment cost benefits compared with the purchase of new units, the advantages that Sentinel Gas gained from working with Westermans are clearly economically significant.
Sentinel’s Finance Manager, Rebecca Mountford, notes that the company is very pleased with the quality of the equipment and that the service and support from Westermans was impeccable.
Confidence between the two companies
“Quality welding is central to the work that we undertake, particularly as it is at the high performance end of the spectrum, so it is not only a factor on a project-by-project basis, but is effectively at the heart of our reputation,” concludes Stephen Kane at Sentinel. “Our work with Westermans International helps to give us – and our customers – long term confidence in the services we provide.”
He points out that Sentinel Gas Systems has specified equipment from Westermans International on a number of occasions in the past – not least an earlier AMI orbital welding system that also delivered high quality results but was less portable than the two AMI 207 units.
Westermans understands that every customer is unique. As such, they aim to provide a tailored solution to match individual requirements. Their expert team are able to advise every step of the way to ensure any customer’s relationship with them goes from strength to strength.
