Today’s Manufacturing Challenges
The production of machinery for use by operators in the nonrenewable energy fields can be a difficult task. Equipment must be able to tolerate harsh environments while performing intensive activities, and remain effective, durable, and reliable for a long period. Manufacturers must take a lot into account when constructing these types of mechanisms, but here are some of the biggest pain points that should be considered when producing systems for the oil, gas, and mining industries:
Leaks, cracks, or other types of damage can wreak detrimental havoc to a pipeline’s operations. Other than the harm these hardships provide for the surrounding environment and community, they can cause pipeline operations to suspend for horrendously long periods of time – leading to high costs and a lack of productivity. To bring value to their customers, manufacturers must ensure their products are assembled to withstand harsh conditions and maintain durability.
GP Reeves Solutions:
- Precise sealing equipment that prevents leaks or cracks in the first place.
- Expertise of a plethora of materials best suited for harsh environmental conditions.
- Reliable and consistent dispensing ensures seals and bonds are formed to last.
- Automated dispensing solutions reduce downtime and limit wasted expenses.
If not properly taken care of, machinery can be vulnerable to corrosive agents, effects from weathering, decreased effectiveness, and a shorter lifetime. Operators oftentimes must pause production to take care of equipment and ensure it’s good to run. Manufacturers must consider how much maintenance will be required of their products and attempt to limit this as much as possible.
GP Reeves Solutions:
- Effective dispensing equipment provides long-lasting and reliable lubrication.
- Specialized technology from GP Reeves prevents debris from accesses lubrication materials.
- Advanced dispensing systems reduce friction, enhance product quality, and allow for increased production capacity.
The tough equipment utilized within the oil, gas, and mining industries doesn’t get to shift from a heavy winter coat to a lighter spring jacket. It must adapt to seasonal changes in temperature and environmental conditions with ease. Manufacturers should be aware of potentials for harsh environments, freezing, melting, and various temperatures that might impact their products’ surrounding environment. Assemblers should do their best to circumvent issues due to natural causes with proper construction and up to date technology.
GP Reeves Solutions:
- The team at GP Reeves can utilize a wealth of knowledge surrounding a myriad of materials to properly dispense the material that best suits the conditions of your equipment.
- Superior precision ensures sealant and adhesive materials are delivered exactly where they will be most beneficial to overall operations.
- Customized equipment from GP Reeves solves your particular problem with intentional accuracy and reliable effectiveness.
Rapid technology improvements and decreasing costs of renewable energy resources, along with the increased competitiveness of battery storage, have made renewables one of the most popular energy sources in many areas. To keep stakeholders and maintain prominence in the realm of energy production, nonrenewable market players should try towards increased environmental efficiency and better standards for ecological awareness.
Some options to accommodate this trend include the idea of shifting to renewable sources of electricity, even in off-grid environments, because the cost of battery packs is projected to halve from 2017 to 2030. Another economically viable decarbonization option is to electrify mining equipment, such as diesel trucks and gas-consuming appliances.

Reducing Pipeline Corrosion
Although it’s great for carrying material through various environments, the steel used to make pipelines is vulnerable to external conditions that can impact its wellbeing and durability. A material pipeline is susceptible to corrosion due to surrounding air contaminants, erosion from internal material, seasonal weather changes, and other harsh occurrences. If corrosion impacts the steel of the pipeline, the material being carried, and operations overall can be negatively impacted.
Pipelines need to stay reliable and durable, which is why GP Reeves is crucial to ensuring you put your best foot forward towards fighting corrosive influences. Our cutting-edge machinery can ensure your pipeline operations can effectively maintain proper material flow, pressure, and viscosities without influence of corrosive elements.
