Paradigm’s Dry-Flo: game changing technology

Paradigm’s Dry-Flo: game changing technology

Paradigm’s Dry-Flo technology is a digitally enabled non-invasive inspection and performance test for deluge fire protection systems. It accurately verifies flow performance to NFPA code whilst highlighting the location and magnitude of system anomalies all without flowing firewater.

Both GCG Engineering Services and E&I form part of Juman Energy Group LLC, a Ghobash Group Company. Juman Energy Group is a dynamic cooperation of established operating companies and partnerships that offers an enhanced level of engineering technologies to deliver disruptive solutions to the regional energy sector.

The five operating companies within the Group leverage their combined expertise and partnerships with companies such as Paradigm Flow Services to explore new avenues for growth.

Jürgen A Joman, Managing Director of Juman Energy Group said: “We are extremely impressed by their game changing technology which accurately verifies deluge system performance without the need for wet testing. We are looking forward to providing a sound asset integrity solution to our clients and making this a success for both parties.”

McCormick concluded: “Wet testing is fundamentally a disruptive, damaging and environmentally unsound practice that negatively affects the asset which a deluge system is designed to protect. Our Dry-Flo offering and GCG’s local knowledge are the key to offering a more cost-effective and sustainable integrity management offering in the UAE.”

More recently, Paradigm also announced a strategic alliance with UK and Ireland based fire service and maintenance specialists Hawkes Fire.

Hawkes will be the agent promoting the sales and rentals of Paradigm’s dry deluge technology, Dry-Flo and its associated products onshore UK market. Hawkes Fire, with the agreement, will actively market and introduce Dry-Flo 4.0, the world’s leading digital dry deluge system to the UK market.

Paradigm Flow Services are well known for their innovate problem solving technology in the oil and gas industry and last year they also successfully applied their game changing digital dry deluge testing system, Dry-Flo on a major transport tunnel construction project in Sydney, Australia. They are hoping they will recreate this success into other industrial sectors.

McCormick commented: “We’re delighted to team up with Hawkes Fire to promote our ground-breaking Dry-Flo 4.0 technology. It gives them the opportunity to expand their fire safety offering and allows us more exposure to other high-risk industries and smart applications. This non-invasive data acquisition software which accurately simulates wet flow testing in virtual litres, can detect debris in many systems with such accuracy that we can rectify issues immediately. This technology saves valuable time and effort for the client.”

Martin Hawkes, Managing Director of Hawkes Fire further explained: “We are thrilled to be partnered with Paradigm to promote their Dry deluge technology. As experts in fire safety and inspection, we are impressed by their Dry-Flo technology and its ability to safely performance test deluge fire protection systems, with limited resources required in the process. This is a game changer as it offers a safer, more economical, and sustainable means of deluge testing and inspection, using less resources such as people and water. Paradigm is a testament to our business ethos of providing products and systems that combine leading edge technology with a proven capability.”

McCormick added: “Our Dry-Flo technology can be installed as a temporary service, or permanently installed to allow unmanned remote periodic testing to take place without any disruption to the fire protection system or the area it has been installed to protect. We’re really proud that our technology is diverse and can be easily applied to other industries and can achieve deluge testing in a more sustainable manner. We look forward to working closely with Hawkes Fire team to further Dry-Flo’s success into more industries.”
