This is the scope of what the project entailed:
Above are the main tracks of the transfer deck, assembled with their drip pans installed between the tracks.
The purpose of the pans are to capture and drain any residual wood preservative that may drip off the treated wood products as they are removed from the autoclave.
These particular tracks are just over 100′ in length and were aligned with a tolerance of +- 1/16″ over its entire length.
For those who work with welding metal together, you know this is no easy feat.
Above are various manufactured parts that will be used in the transfer deck.
These parts will be assembled into the deck’s drive system. These assemblies will move the deck transverse to the autoclaves, which are often referred to treating cylinders in this particular industry.
The photo above shows our manufactured tram cars partially assembled. Our employee, Evan Ganey is welding out one of the tram’s bottom supports.
The trams cars are used to transfer the treated wood products into and out of the autoclave,
both before and after the wood has been treated with wood preservative.
These cars are currently midway through the assembly.
The results of the finished transfer deck system project were quite beneficial for the company that hired us.
They were able to:
