Custom Sheet Metal Fabrication – One service we take care of for seamless facility maintenance

February 10, 2015

Unlike some service companies who are very two dimensional and have issues difficult for them to overcome when they come across a problem during the course of their work,   Pumpcoat ~ PCI Contractors doesn’t balk when it runs into some complications on the job.  Here are a few examples of Sheet Metal Fabrication that we have been able to provide for our customers:

Air Park Building Doors:  Last Fall, a bad storm had come through the area and damaged one of the metal buildings at a local airpark. The doors had been nearly torn off and were badly mangled.   PCI sent a Field Service Professional out soon after and took the appropriate measurements for new doors. Through one of our affiliate machine shops, new custom doors were cut, and PCI installed them with a very quick turnaround, getting the building back in working order.

Cooling Tower Distribution Trays: PCI was in the process of a Cooling Tower rebuild, when it was found that the distribution trays (large pans underneath the towers that hold the cooling water) were rusted out. They were too far gone to be salvageable with our normal means of epoxy rebuild material. Our Field Service team took measurements and we had new trays made to order in a short amount of time. The trays were given an epoxy top-coat to help withstand future rust and erosion, then installed into the tower. The total Cooling Tower job was still finished on time, with a very minimal increase in the original estimate.

Cooling Tower Louvers: Another Cooling Tower PCI was repairing had severe corrosion issues with the air intake louvers on front.   Our Field Service Team measured and diagramed a set of replacement louvers which were then fabricated at our affiliate shop.  They were installed when the tower was put back together and functioned perfectly. The new louvers added efficiency to Cooling Tower as a whole.

Jet Enclosures: PCI Contractors were servicing a Power Generation’s Jet Enclosures. This is a small unmanned facility with several buildings that housed jet turbines and equipment used to produce additional power for the grid. Many of these buildings had begun to show external wear from the environment.  A few of the buildings sported metal awnings above the doors as additional protection from the elements.  The awnings had begun to rust severely.  PCI measured and fabricated new awnings on site as  part of the total maintenance package provided to the customer for that facility.

Pumpcoat ~ PCI Contractors has the ability to provide a full complement of services relating to facility maintenance. From metal issues to coatings to mechanical equipment like cooling towers or heat exchangers, PCI’s service people are well versed in solving problems.
