New orders for Axial Cyclones…
During June and July various customers placed orders with us for a total of around 1000 cyclones for a range of services including mist elimination from sour natural gas as well as black powder removal at operating pressures between 25 to 100 bar. During these difficult times we are striving to assist customers by continually improving our products through our in-house R&D programs, as well as aiming to continually reduce costs through manufacturing efficacy and design.
All Welded Cyclone Bundles…
We recently received orders from two customers for our KSME Axial Cyclones (left) and our KMCE Multi-cyclones (right) for installation inside separator vessels where the design approach is ‘sealed for life’, requiring fully welded mounting of internals into seal plates for the customers to weld directly into the vessels. Although normally specified for installation and maintenance removal via man-holes, many of our internals can be adapted for fully welded installation with a few small modifications. This more frequently applies to smaller vessels where it is unrealistic to install manways.
Vane Pack Vee Bank for Compact Layout…
The Vee Bank arrangement is often used to assist with the compact design of vertical or horizontal gas scrubbers / separators. This particular example is currently being supplied to a UK pressure vessel fabricator for installation in a 1600mm dia horizontal drum with the 26″ inlet and outlet in opposite dished ends.

Coronavirus Update (17 March 2020)…
We are entering uncertain and difficult times with regards to business working, meeting and travel restrictions, as well as potential disruption to the flow of goods and components internationally.
It is our intention to maintain production as close to normal as possible over the months ahead and we currently have good stock levels of most materials.
However, customers should be aware that in some instances there may be delays to production and delivery caused by circumstances beyond our control and we ask for your patience during this time of international uncertainty. We will keep customers informed on a project / order basis.
The safety and well being of our staff, customers, suppliers and all associates is uppermost in our planning and hence we are curtailing all non essential meetings and travel for the time being. Meetings will be held by teleconference / telephone in the first instance.
Thank you for your understanding.

Happy New Year…
Our best wishes to all our customers, colleagues and business partners for a happy New Year and a safe and prosperous 2020.
We were fortunate to end the year with orders for over 1000 KSME Swirltubes to be fulfilled in Q1, together with a wide range of other devices including inlet diffusers, vane packs, mesh coalescers, etc, allowing us to look forward with confidence to another busy year ahead.
Double Celebration in September…
On 12th September we were delighted to receive the Lord Lieutenant of Surrey and his Deputy, to make the formal presentation of the Queen’s Award for Enterprise (International Trade) to an audience of long serving colleagues, suppliers, customers and business associates. The ceremony coincided with our 10th anniversary as a stand alone business, during which time we have completed many hundreds of orders to customers operating in most regions of the world.
A big thank you to all our business partners for helping us in this journey!
FPSO Separator Internals Award…
KIRK Process Solutions were recently awarded a contract for the design and supply of internals to a customer in Singapore, for a 3000mm ID Test Separator on a FPSO vessel located offshore Nigeria. The scope included the design of anti-motion baffles and weir to be manufactured by the local pressure vessel fabricator, together with other specialist internals and coalescers supplied by KIRK in stainless steel.
Queen’s Award Reception…
An enjoyable evening yesterday 11th June 2019 with daughter April (who assisted me through the early years) at the Buckingham Palace reception for Queen’s Award winners. It was great chatting to the other winners and meeting a whole bunch of inspirational people.
Queen’s Award for International Trade 2019…
We are delighted to announce that KIRK Process Solutions Limited has won the Queen’s Award for International Trade 2019.
The award reflects the rapid growth in our export sales in the past 3 years, serving customers around the world. We have seen strong growth not just in our main cyclone product lines, but also our more general separator internals business as well as our consulting and software lines.
The whole team here would like to say a big thank you to our key component suppliers for supporting us through this expansion, and an even bigger one to our customers for their faith in our products and services.
Later this year we also celebrate 10 years of trading; it has been an incredible journey and one we look forward to continuing towards new heights.
Michael Kirk – Chief Executive
