ALCO’s hook-up and assembly shop is a state-of-the art building that is designed with efficiency in mind. With an under-hook height of 45 feet, ALCO can assemble almost any size of modularized oil and gas plant. Just like ALCO’s vessel fabrication facilities, this shop has its own skilled work force that is committed to producing a top-quality product. Pipe spooling is completed in a dedicated workshop shop and is manufactured according to the requirements of ASME B31.1 and 31.3.
ALCO performs on-site stress relieving for all vessels and pipe spooling. This ultra-modern PWHT furnace is comprised of two (2) – 12’ wide x 12’ high x 40’ long sections that can be operated individually, or combined as one 80’ long unit. Each furnace section has two burner assemblies fitted with 3HP medium velocity blower at 1400CFM. The furnace temperatures are monitored using thermos electric recorder that displays the temperature of each thermocouple. Performance of the furnace is verified and regularly calibrated to ensure reliable results in strict accordance with the requirements of CSA B149.3 and is CSA.
