Barnhart Replaces Sulfur Condenser in Emergency Shutdown
The Heavy Lift Group (THLG) has released photographs and details of a case study of an operation carried out during a plant emergency shut down by their member for the USA, Barnhart Crane and Rigging
For this project, Barnhart had to remove a gigantic, 25,000 lb (11.33t) sulfur condenser and replace it with a new one during the emergency shutdown. The major challenge was the angle with which they had to move it at, as moving straight wasn’t an option. It was also the time window. It had to get done then and there.
Thankfully, the Barnhart team of expert movers came and handled it flawlessly. They commissioned their dual beam counterweight cantilever system to do the job and managed to get everything settled in just one 16 hour shift. For such a large part, the team consider that a success.
