Oil and gas is the cornerstone of modern civilization. Mankind’s ability to generate power, create electricity and fuel our lifestyle stems in no small part from the success of our mining and refining endeavours. Such specialized industries benefit greatly from custom metal fabrication. Contract manufacturing companies, like Rider Tool and Manufacturing Co., enable these marvels of mechanical engineering to function at peak efficiency. Here in Oshawa, Ontario, steel fabrication provides a vital role in the further development of these oil and gas mining and refining plants. But what exactly is the role of custom metal fabrication in the industry?
Oil and gas mining and refining is a complex process and thus requires a large infrastructure to support it. This includes pipes, holding tanks, work areas structural supports and sometimes even the housing of a workforce. Custom metal fabrication makes all of this a reality.
The backbone of any mechanical engineering endeavour is the ability to transfer ideas and drawings into reality. To that end, one needs specialized equipment. And if you need specialized equipment, you need custom metal fabrication.
Almost all equipment in the oil and gas industry is made from structural steel, and Rider Tool and Manufacturing Co. specialize in structural steel fabrication. Whether you need pipes, supports mounts or pressure vessels, no job is too large or too small. At Rider Tool we also have the ability to fabricate oil and gas separators which are vital in the refining process.
Heavy industry is dangerous. Large machinery, tough working conditions and volatile materials all combine to create a hazardous working environment. As such, a major priority is the mitigation of risk. Surprisingly enough, custom metal fabrication can assist in that. When developing infrastructure and machinery, certain safety factors like handrails, for non-slip and safety cover purposes, can be designed into the plans to ensure a safer working environment.
