We were approached with a project to change out (2) SIX FOOT diameter elbows along with some associated piping.
The problem was that with the heat the equipment had been exposed to, it wasn’t certain to what degree the elbow had grown and if it was even a 90 degree elbow anymore.
We were able to use our 3D scanning technology to scan the elbow and provide an exact replacement for what was there.
All of the fabrication was done prior to arriving on site, and we were able to remove the old equipment and install the new equipment within a small window of opportunity during a plant shutdown.
The new elbow was not a true 90 degrees and it had a slight lateral bend as well. The scan was so precise that we could even see the dents from sledgehammers in the elbow.
The new equipment fit perfectly and the project was completed ahead of schedule.
