Petrochemical solutions

Integrated systems for safer, more flexible and faster workflows

Petrochemical plants need to adapt to meet changing demands. They often have multiple processing areas, producing chemicals that range from ethylene for plastic production to ammonia for fertilizer. Hilti integrated solutions help you meet varying demand during the set-up of new processing facilities, as well as during turnarounds or plant extensions. Backed up by powerful design software, global support and expertise, we are a key contributor to operational and technological excellence at high standard processing plants.

Cable tray and ladder supports

Modular systems for faster installation and easier adjustment

When routing cables through petrochemical plants, flexibility and safety are key. Solutions such as heavy-load cable trays and waterfall supports are effective, but have lengthy installation times and are difficult to adapt when you need to re-route cables. By contrast, our modular cable tray and cable ladder supports can be installed faster and modified more easily. They also enable integration of HVAC and piping with cabling, significantly reducing installation costs. Specialist 3D modeling software also lets you design cable tray and cable ladder supports with the correct approvals.

 

Simpler grating fastening

Fitting and removal of checker plate by one person - no welding needed

Grating applications are integral to petrochemical plants, but traditional methods of securing gratings are inefficient. Welding can be dangerous, requires meticulous planning and hot-work permits, and demands lengthy post-work. Multi-piece clamps are slow to install and can be loosened by vibration. Our grating fasteners, on the other hand, speed up installation and can help you reduce costs. Designed for easy installation by just one worker from the top of a grating, they can be removed more easily for maintenance work and are vibration resistant. Optional blunt-tipped grating fasteners help prevent paint penetration and thus reduce post-installation touch-up.

Raised floor systems

Lightweight access flooring with integrated cable routing

Make separate panel stands, electrical tray supports, and floor tile supports a thing of the past. These structures leave limited space for cables, are difficult to modify and require additional scaffoldings. We help solve these problems with integrated floor systems that are lighter, quicker to install and designed to make cable routing much easier. One system provides you with cabinet support, cable tray management and floor tile support. This not only minimizes planning but also gives you greater versatility and adjustability to suit all configurations.

Pipe support solutions

Non-welded modular systems for easier reconfiguration

As chemical plants are built, extended, or repurposed, they require significant flexibility to modify and adjust modular solutions such as pipe supports. These installations have traditionally relied on heavy, welded pipe supports, which are both laborious to install and difficult to adjust. By contrast, our pipe support systems make it much simpler for you to fit light, medium and heavy-duty pipes to a structure – and to change the configuration of existing installations. Furthermore, when using our solution in combination with our anchoring solutions, you can work up to 20% faster when using an impact wrench fitted with an adaptive torque module. 

Fastening to concrete

Reliable anchors with approvals for challenging environments

Fastening equipment to concrete at petrochemical plants can be complex. A need for flexibility generally rules out static rebar. Variables such as cracked concrete, corrosive environments and overhead installation also require robust, proven and reliable solutions. We are your full anchoring solutions provider, providing a broad range of mechanical and chemical post-installed anchors, all with type approvals for fastening to concrete in different situations. Our tools make anchor layout and installation faster and easier, while PROFIS anchor design software help you select the right solution – giving you peace of mind for each application.

Versatile equipment racking

Adjustable supports for electrical and instrumental strands

When it comes to building durable equipment racks in a variety of configurations, our modular supports are an ideal solution. You can use our innovative MT installation system for smaller or single equipment stands, as well as for modular solutions to build larger, flexible multi-equipment racks. Adjustable supports are ideal for junction boxes, switching equipment or access panels. Upfront modelling and load calculation ensure you design and install the right stands and supports for your applications.
