Fertilizer Conveyor Platform Repairs

CHALLENGE

We were approached by a customer needing a fertilizer conveyor platform to be repaired. One of their requirements was to improve the safety of the platform.

SOLUTION

Our Repairs & Maintenance Division had our field crew inspect the conveyor platform. Our field team replaced ‘mild steel’ with stainless steel on the platform to create a safer work environment.  The fertilizer conveyor platform is approximately 35 feet in the air increasing the need for making the platform as safe as possible.

Tell us a funny or embarrassing story while  you were at work.

When Angela and I searched for, what we thought was a live cricket, for over 20 minutes (even timing chirps to see if it was some kind of joke).  It drove us crazy until Angela googled “Cricket Pranks” and found the exact sound we were hearing.  Turns out the guys hid a cricket card underneath Angela’s desk for it to go off at random times!
