Fabricated stainless steel Catalytic Converter w/ Pipe Bundle.
A customer approached us about doing this job out of stainless steel with the stainless pipe bundle being made out of a special seamless tubing. The timeline was critical as the customer had a two day plant outage scheduled and they needed this unit installed during that time. We were given 4-5 weeks to complete the project but the special tubing had a 3 week lead time meaning we had just over a week to complete the job once the material arrived. We threw tons of guys on it and worked some crazy hours to make the date happen
