Accumulator Tower for Metal Coating Process

Structural Steel Tower

This project consisted of constructing two similar towers. The entry side is pictured and the exit side can be seen in the distance. This new customer to Swanton Welding requested the project to be finish painted before it was delivered. These structural steel towers were assembled in the field and required very little need for touch up to the finish paint.

Project Start/End Date: 8 weeks total build time
