industrial tool design
We design and develop complex professional tools and industrial devices that are used in factories and building sites in extreme working conditions.
Charging and discharging reactors is a critical job that demands the highest levels of safety and efficiency. Mourik is one of the few companies in the world that have mastered this task.
The M-lance is an highly complex automated system for discharging reactors. The system reduces the down-time of the reactor by approximately half. Thanks to the M-lance, work in the reactor is much safer and only one quarter of the people are needed compared to manual discharging.
Our design and engineering firm has developed the product from scratch. Starting with several proof of principle setups that were tested in chemical plants in the Netherlands and abroad, a first start was made with the pneumatic motor and controller system.
Later more sophisticated prototypes were developed, with fully in-house developed PLC automation, highly complex drive cassettes and air operated motors.
We manufactured a small series of machines in house and run tests in Qatar, the USA and Germany.
TOFD / PE ultrasonic measuring device
The TOFD / PE (time of flight diffraction and pulse echo) device is a very high quality ultrasonic measuring device, developed for TÜV Rheinland Sonovation, that is used to check and certify the quality of welds. The device is used in heavy machine building, oil and gas industry and offshore activities.
The device uses ultrasonic sound pulses to create an insight view of welds, thus making it possible to assess the quality of welds in a non-destructive manner. The measuring data is send by means of a pre-amp to an industrial laptop for analyses.
The M-Ty is a handheld device attached to the M-Lance. While the M-Lance is carrying out a run, the operator performs a cross-check of the previous batch of pipes with the M-Ty. This way of working eliminates the tedious and time-consuming manual check that used to be necessary after unloading the reactor. This saves valuable turnaround time and removes potential faults.
The M-Ty measures with a constant airflow whether the tubes are completely emptied. If this is the case, a green marker appears and the operator closes the tube with a green cap. If the tube is not completely emptied, a red marker appears and the operator shields the tube with a red cap.
When finishing unloading, the top tube sheet is covered with green and some red caps. The red spots needs to be reworked, until all of the top sheet is green. This way the M-ty contributes to an efficient and secure unloading process.
