Established in 1944, GD Engineering has gained a worldwide reputation for pioneering work in the design and manufacture of advanced pipeline access and pigging solutions. Serving the oil/gas, petrochemical and industrial processing sectors, as well as the emerging biofuels industry, we are instrumental in helping our customers to maximize their investment in pipeline infrastructure by facilitating any necessary maintenance or upgrade work.
Our quick-opening closures enable rapid access (either vertically or horizontally) to vessels once they have been depressurized. This can be done without the need for any special tools, and while ensuring complete safety for field operatives through a series of proprietary protection mechanisms. These state-of-the-art closures are capable of dealing with even the highest levels of pressure.
