ABERDEEN, UK – CorDEX Instruments has forged a strategic partnership with the University of Aberdeen, investing £150,000 ($244,000) to provide safe and explosion proof technologies for use in research.

The deal will see CorDEX provide equipment and onsite training in the correct use of the oil and gas tools. Over the next three years, CorDEX will donate its latest handheld devices to the university. The ToughPIX digital camera and UT5000 Intrinsically Safe Thickness Gauge, which measures pipeline thickness to detect corrosion, are being supplied in the first phase.

Tony Holliday, CEO of CorDEX Instruments said: “It is incredibly important for us to forge these ties with key academic institutions. The University of Aberdeen is a leading educator of engineers in the UK and we are pleased to be involved in the cutting-edge research taking place there. We feel it is vital for students of this discipline to gain knowledge from current industry practice and we hope to achieve this through the partnership.”
