Job Description

Our client designs and manufactures innovative subsea pipes made from composite materials - for oil & gas industry

The manager is looking for someone who can carry out the testing (different material tests on composite pipework, ranging from Burst, Compression, Tension and Bend Tests) He needs to grow the department by at least 1 person and as a company their production is ramping up by 10 fold. 

It’s a hands on role and will involve QC type testing, can be fairly repetitive and would suit someone who is happy to run repeat tests and, collate the data, input it onto their system ready for the engineers to then analyse. 

You’ll be using hoists, chains, preparing samples and using strain gauges, hydraulic pumps & rams for load testing. They have 2 tensile machines - Tinuus Olson – for compression & pressure testing. It will also include assembling the couplings which fit onto the end of the pipe, these weight 250kg – hence the hoists etc.
