Producing top-notch offshore containers requires a meticulous production process that ensures durability, safety, and compliance with industry standards. In this article, we'll delve into the step-by-step procedure and key requirements for manufacturing high-quality TLS offshore containers. From structural fabrication to final acceptance, each phase plays a crucial role in delivering containers that excel in the challenging marine environment.
1. Frame Fabrication and Welding: Ensuring Structural Integrity
Creating a solid foundation is paramount. Our expert class-certified welders execute all primary structural welds with precision, using full penetration welding techniques. A durable paint package is applied to protect containers from harsh marine conditions. Rigorous third-party inspections guarantee the containers' quality before they proceed to the next stage.
2. Floor Installation: Stability and Quality
Building upon the foundation, we meticulously install the floor. Starting with calcium silicate plates on the lower deck, we overlay fixed steel mesh and upper deck dressings. This layered approach ensures stability and resilience. The final deck dressings are meticulously placed, and the flatness of the floor is thoroughly examined and approved by qualified inspectors.
3. Insulation Material Placement: Energy Efficiency and Fire Safety
Prioritizing energy efficiency and fire safety, our process involves strategic nail placement for subsequent rock wool insulation. Attention to detail is crucial during the installation of rock wool to ensure proper coverage, sufficient overlap, and secure joints with fireproof tape.
4. Pipe and Cable Tray Setup: Utility Integration with Precision
Our containers are designed for optimal functionality. Before installing water pipes, air pipes, and cable trays, insulation is meticulously placed. To maintain straightness and stability, supporting booms are strategically reserved on the container's top plate for secure pipe attachment.
5. Interior Wall Panel Integration: Aesthetics and Structure
Balancing aesthetics and structure, our containers receive interior wall panels that provide both visual appeal and structural support. Fixing slots are pre-installed to ensure a seamless fit for the inner panels. Our team guarantees a smooth, flat surface for the panels and ceilings, featuring immaculate and straight splicing gaps.
6. Furniture and Appliance Integration: Seamlessly Functional
Creating a comfortable environment, we install furniture and appliances according to the preliminary design drawings. To ensure proper functionality and safety, our installations adhere to regulations, and all power connections undergo meticulous inspection by qualified quality inspectors.
7. Rigorous Testing and Acceptance: Meeting Client Expectations
Prior to shipping, our containers undergo a comprehensive testing and acceptance phase. We offer a range of acceptance methods, including on-site inspections, video assessments, and graphic evaluations. Only containers that successfully meet acceptance criteria are approved for shipping.
Manufacturing high-quality offshore containers demands a comprehensive approach that encompasses structural integrity, insulation, utilities integration, and meticulous quality control. Our process guarantees durability, safety, and compliance with industry standards. Whether through expert welds, precision installations, or rigorous inspections, our containers are built to thrive in the demanding marine environment.
