RHS services available in Kuwait.

Rapid Heat Systems' (RHS) heat treatment services using the induction process are now available in Kuwait following a successful launch. "Engineering Contracting Kuwait's (ECK) heat treatment division launched the services under the supervision of Pan Gulf Technical Services' (PGTS) professional and experienced staff," a statement said. PGTS is a branch of Pan Gulf Welding Solutions, a division of Saudi-based Pan Gulf Holding. UK-based RHS' services will help meet ongoing and upcoming requirements of oil and gas industries in Kuwait, the statement said. ECK will operate as a rental service provider. The patented induction heating technology from RHS has applications throughout the oil and gas industry, in power plants and in petrochemical and iron and steel facilities for heating requirements up to 815 deg C including PWHT pre-heat shrink fitting. Induction heating is a non-contact process of heating a metal object by electromagnetic induction. Heat is induced by placing the part in a high-frequency magnetic field which creates eddy currents inside the part, thereby exciting its molecules and generating heat. As heating occurs slightly below the metal surface, no heat is wasted. The system is explained by the analogy of the microwave oven -- the appliance (heater coils) remain cool while the food (metal) cooks within. PGTS has provided full technical, sales and operational support to promote awareness of RHS services and to build the brand in Kuwait. It has also provided ample stocks in Kuwait for handling major upcoming projects and has made available trained and certified RHS technicians, the statement said. ECK managing director Jaber Al Jaber expressed in a message his pleasure at introducing RHS heat treatment services in Kuwait. He said his company would raise awareness of the RHS brand and its services in Kuwait. PGTS general manager Andy Leigh said PGTS was optimistic the Kuwait operations would be another success story following the company's experience in Saudi Arabia and Bahrain. Paul Graham, RHS managing director, said it was his dream to promote his company's heat treatment services throughout the Gulf with the support of a professional and experienced team based in Saudi Arabia and the UK. He wished the Kuwait operations every success. RHS was introduced in Saudi Arabia two years ago and has since then provided Saudi industries with the most modern heating application.
