When we were in the planning stages of this Heat Exchanger Facility we did our research to figure out what the best solutions were in the industry for each process. By combining all of these best practices, and designing our own solutions where no good solution currently existed, we developed a facility that is state of the art. We have the on-hand inventory for an outright sale or an advance exchange if needed. And, our facility works per the OEM CMM and only uses original parts – eliminating DER or PMA approval required by the customer. Our Heat Transfer facility can do all of this at market pricing with superior performance. The incoming/receiving section is where our techs can assess the unit and the customer needs. We can then start the paperwork and document our initial findings on the unit. Our chemical processing platform was built with the future in mind. Our 16 fully-automated 600-gallon chemical and rinse tanks have built in filtration, agitation and ORP adjustments. They are user friendly and efficient. We also utilize 2 tanks to perform our underwater proof pressure tests. To make sure our units meet the highest standards, our final test setup is designed to accurately read flows and pressures of a unit to ensure a long lasting, quality product. Our machine shop is utilized for both the disassembly of products before repair as well as the final machining before release to service. To speed up our capability development we decided to purchase a 3D printer primarily for the development of V-band clamps for low pressure applications. It didn’t take long for us to figure out that there were many more ways to utilize this printer, and have since printed cradles for parts during welding, adapters for internal varnish application and supports for testing instruments. Through the use of CMT robotic welding and non-contact dimensional verification, and the best manual TIG welders in the industry, we’re able to produce the best finished product you will find in this market. After welding and dimensional verification, every unit undergoes dye- penetrant inspection to verify the weld quality is compliant with the OEM established criteria. Making sure our community stays safe, we built a Waste Water Treatment Plant to remove heavy metals and chemicals from our waste stream. This system also allows us to be more self-sufficient which cuts down on costs for our customers. Our facility employs skilled people using the latest technologies to ensure a cost-effective, quality product gets to our customer on time.
