Bringing the Middle East’s oil and gas sector together

~ TFC makes its debut at ADIPEC ~

From November 11 to 14, 2019, one of Europe’s most trusted technical engineering groups and providers of custom engineering support TFC heads to the Abu Dhabi International Exhibition & Conference Centre for ADIPEC. TFC can be found on stand 13231, showcasing its technical fastening solutions, including Smalley wave springs and retaining rings. The company’s experienced engineers will be on the stand to discuss the use of these products to solve problems within a variety of oil and gas applications.

Visitors to the TFC stand can find out more about Smalley wave springs and how they can lead to space savings of up to 50 per cent, while achieving similar force and deflection to other spring products. Also on show will be Spirolox® retaining rings, a neat, cost effective alternative to traditional circlips. Applications for these products include ball valves, gate valves, coiled tubing, well abandonment tools, electronic chassis tools and scintillation crystal detectors.

“The Middle East accounts for a third of the world’s oil production and one-sixth of its gas, according to a report by British Petroleum (BP),” explained Simon Ward, technical manager at TFC. “Abu Dhabi is also home to 94 per cent of the UAE’s oil reserves.

“TFC is attending ADIPEC for the first time to share the benefits of Smalley wave springs and Spirolox retaining rings with design engineers in the Middle East,” added Ward. “Our customers in the oil and gas sector have used these products successfully, across numerous applications to improve performance of subsea tools and systems.
