Our Expertise

Regardless of size or complexity, API team members have the skills, resources, and problem-solving capabilities to get the job done right.  Relative to service in general, we contact our customers back in a timely fashion, even if we can't help at the time.  A brief overview of our services is shown below, and please contact us to learn more.
Manufacturing

Equipment manufacturing takes place in our 19,000 sq. ft. clean, organized, climate-controlled facility conveniently located near the intersection of I-10 and I-49.  Our technicians take pride in their work, and their craftsmanship is second to none.

 

We specialize in manufacturing chemical injection skids, hydraulic power units, and topsides umbilical termination units required for deep water subsea tiebacks.  We are also UL 508A certified for Industrial Control Panels.  Pneumatic/Hydraulic Systems, Skid Packaged Automation, PLC Panels, Boarding Valve Panels, Drilling Choke Consoles, and many others are all manufactured following our ISO compliant Quality Management System. 

Design

Our team of experts is uniquely qualified to provide innovative, user-friendly, safe, and reliable solutions for your project.

 

For decades we have designed many wellhead control systems (traditional and subsea applications), electric-over-hydraulic, pneumatic over hydraulic, self-contained manually pumped systems, electrical panels, solar-powered chemical injection & solar-powered air compressors, drilling choke consoles, high-integrity pressure protection systems (HIPPS), SIL rated systems and more. 

 

Our equipment is often installed in potentially explosive environments.  We consistently rely on electrical safety standards defined by the NEC, IEC, and ATEX.

We can also provide line sizing calculations, accumulator sizing, accumulator nitrogen pre-charge recommendations, and more.  When pad-eye calculations are required, we have routinely partnered with a nearby licensed Professional Engineer.

Drafting

We also offer drafting as a stand-alone service.  Don't quite need a full time draftsman?  Give us a call when needed.  Our staff is proficient in a few different software packages, but we primarily use AutoCAD.  We have decades of past project files to reference.  These efficiencies, and more, help shorten delivery times and allow for overall project cost savings.

Our drawing sets include everything you will need to maintain the system and/or order a duplicate, such as:  schematics, backplate layouts, wiring diagrams, bill of materials, general arrangements, nametag legends, enclosure or skid structural details, and notes / operating procedures.

Custom Tag Engraving

While our main service offerings are the focus, we are also light and nibble enough to help out with other special projects.

Using our 16" x 12" engraver, we can provide custom tags and signs for a variety of industrial equipment, office name tags, stainless steel cable tags, and even trophies.

...and more

...under construction.

 

We have successfully completed a wide variety of instrumentation and electrical projects over the years, installed stainless steel tubing on pressure washing equipment, replaced hydraulic lines on tractors, run brake lines on vehicles, installed air compressor lines in residential shops, have supported UL Lafayette Mechanical Engineering senior project teams, and much more!

 

Don't hesitate to ask, if we can't help you we'll at least try to point you in the right direction.
