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.

Roof Access Stairs

Our Customer was looking for a safe way for their employees to access the roof for maintenance. We were able to work together to come up with location on the building to place stairs and do away with the ladder access they were using. From engineering to fabrication to coatings and finally to assembly and installation, we were able to help our customers keep their team safe!

Parish Center Handrail Project

Often times we work with manufacturing and industrial clients to fabricate handrails for their work spaces.  We always enjoy the opportunity to build handrails that are not only functional but add to the aesthetics of a new building project.  These handrails were fabricated in our Poseyville shop, powder coated by our Coatings team and installed by a few team members at Sts. Peter and Paul Catholic Church in Haubstadt, Indiana.  Great work by all of our team!

Loader Access Platform

When our customers have new machines or plant layout we work closely with their team to make sure they have safe ways to access machines for breakdowns and maintenance.  This project is a great example of our customer putting their team’s safety first when installing new equipment in their plant.   Cool fact for this project:  It is PE stamped with a seismic design category E rating, which will prevent fail during a major earthquake.  This facility falls on a major fault line here in the Midwest.  Hats off to the engineering team, fabrication team and the coatings team on a job well done!

Pallet Guarding Project

Nix Metals had a customer needing a support system to keep their employees safe in the event of a racking system fail in a highly used walkway.  Our engineering team designed a guarding system that would work in their plant.  The fabrication team built the guarding and then it went to Nix Coatings for powder coating.  Our field services team worked at the customer job site to erect and install the guarding.    Congrats to all involved in this successful project!
