Case study

Innovative custom equipment enclosure for Sabre

Tricel provide custom-made equipment enclosure for Sabre using sheet moulding compound (SMC)

Sabre, a valve and instrumentation protection system provider, was in need of custom equipment enclosure to ensure the safety of their products. After discussing the particulars of their requirements with Tricel, we delivered specially developed SMC housing units that provided all required specifications.

About Sabre

Sabre is a well-established leading manufacturer of instrumentation protection equipment, valves and manifolds with over 60 years of industry experience. Many of the world’s leading power and processing companies, including gas and oil, employ their equipment to ensure continuous and safe operations.

The challenges of Sabre’s equipment enclosure

The systems to be housed within the protective equipment enclosure is highly sensitive and costly. Due to these factors, strong, reliable and durable protection was paramount. The primary concern for the client was safety during operation as well as a long-term dependability in service. These equipment enclosures were also required to be resistant to types of weathering and changes in temperature, as exposure to the elements was a factor.

Furthermore, factors which needed to be considered within the construction of these units were strong heat-resistance, as well as protection from any degradation which may come about due to ultraviolet (UV) brought about as a result of long-term exposure to natural sunlight. Such exposure can cause certain products to crack and become brittle. It was of the utmost importance that any housing provided guaranteed a high level of protection.

How we helped

Tricel has built up over 60 years of highly successful operational experience within the custom moulding industry. Today, the company has manufacturing capabilities established throughout both the UK and Ireland and produce as well as deliver a range of innovative, solution-based products to over 50 countries worldwide, supplying a range of industries. Using sheet moulding compounds and glass reinforced plastics we successfully design and produce highly specialised products for multiple sectors.

Our expertise and capabilities allowed us to deliver a complete system which met all their requirements using an SMC enclosure. This offered excellent protection and covered all concerns stipulated by Sabre. The high strength to low weight ratio of the fibre reinforced composite material used to construct the housing was extremely durable, weather resistant, UV protected, and fire resistant.

The equipment enclosure was delivered in a specified off-white colouring, as products are pigmented dependent upon client requirements. This form of material is also highly suited to post-production painting due to excellent surface quality, meaning alterations can be made to suit any changes over time.

The final result

Sabre was very happy with the equipment enclosure delivered by Tricel, and we have continued to produce products for these clients for over 16 years. These custom-made equipment enclosures are a key accessory within the supply and installation of an array of Sabre installations.
