Fully Equipped Facility for Large Valve Repair and Modification
Our 42,000 sq. ft. repair and engineering testing building is served by 40 and 20 ton cranes with a 37 foot hook height. Also located in this building are our large capacity machine tools, including a 20 foot table vertical boring mill with 20 feet of top height.
The repair department weld shop is served by a 20-ton crane and features the latest welding equipment including automated hot-wire TIG and submerged arc processes.
The repair building also has a very large, 1200-ton capacity Porgetti horizontal test rack, encased in a wood-lined steel testing bunker. Additional large capacity testing machines are also located in this building.
The 61,000 sq. ft. production building includes three crane equipped bays. The central bay features a 20 ton crane with a 300 foot runway and 29 feet of hook height. Four additional 10 ton cranes augment the lifting capabilities in the other bays. For projects that exceed our internal lifting capacity, a two acre concrete parking lot is available.
Our heaviest valve service application to date was the assembly and testing of large butterfly valves that required the services of two 50-ton cranes to lift the valve, flanges, and hydrotest fluid they contained. The total weight of the assemblies was over 87 tons.
