Riverhawk Exhibits at 2014 Australian Oil and Gas Trade Show

Back in February, Riverhawk’s Director of Innovation Engineering attended the Australian Oil and Gas Trade Show (AOG) in Perth, Australia with Riverhawk sales representative Tony Martin of Ro-Quip Singapore. Riverhawk shared a booth with West Coast Industrial Supplies (WCIS). This was a very large exhibition and conference that focused on the development of oil and gas fields as well as production. Most of the exhibitors at our level focused on maintenance products and services. Companies that displayed tensioners offered what appeared to be standard configuration tensioners arranged as “toolbox” units. These companies often displayed several tightening technologies. Pump manufacturers were the primary rotation equipment exhibitors.

 

Tony Martin did a great job of attracting many attendees into the booth to discuss tensioning products and directed them to the flange tensioner demo display. Most of these people appeared to be focused on procurement and maintenance. Flexitallic is a prominent gasket manufacturer and Riverhawk was able to make contact with them while at the show. Their booth displayed a flange similar to Riverhawk’s that had load instrumentation feeding into a very professionally constructed display with load data. They used this for demonstration of the importance of tightening to the integrity of their gaskets. We spoke to a representative from Flexitallic to discuss the possibility of them using Riverhawk tensioners on their display. Bob Whitney also had discussions with John Whalen of John Crane in regards to the Riverhawk VRD. John has expressed interest in our Viscous Rotational Damper and would like to further investigate the possibility of co-developing a VRD product for use with John Crane couplings.
