A crop protection chemical processing company located in Billings, Montana was having trouble with the exterior glyphosate pumps seizing up during low temperatures. It was determined that steam injection at the mechanical seals of the pumps would resolve this issue.
We determined the best tie-in locations for efficient material usage, accessibility and installation. The steam and condensate lines were connected to existing plant services. This project required modifications as well as fabrication of new pipe supports. They were integrated with the existing system to provide a seamless finished product.
By offering integrated services of structural fabrication and piping installation, Montana Ironworks was able to control the project schedule for procurement, fabrication and installation.
Coordination of this project included working with the mine operations and environmental teams to ensure there was little to no impacts on operations.
This work was performed while the facility maintained production with no effect on operations. Montana Ironworks procured and installed materials in a timely manner to meet the client’s schedule. This project was completed safely on time and on budget.
