The Projects/Engineering team engaged with IBEX Australia to provide instrumentation compression fitting solutions for a fuel additive skid application. Jack Way, VIS-LOK National Sales Manager, then liaised with AFH in order to meet their requirements.
The fuel skid was a fully automated system comprising of two low flow high pressure progressive cavity pumps, instrumentation and control panels, all interconnected with stainless steel tubing and piping. IBEX Australia demonstrated its unique capabilities and benefits over competitors’ products very quickly, allowing AFH to commence the project ahead of schedule and on budget.
