Truck Dump Project

Truck Dump Project

 

Swanton Welding fabricated two truck dump platforms. These are used in various industries where semi or other large trucks are driven onto a platform for unloading.  After securing the truck, the platform is raised high into the air, and the load on the truck is transferred via gravity into a bin or hopper. 

Our client builds a lot of these, so this was not necessarily new to them.

Swanton was a top choice to complete the work due to our proximity to their job site which is in Michigan. When completed, these truck dumps are very large. Swanton Welding was at a significant advantage over other competitors who were further away, which would cost more for delivery.

Catalytic Converter

Catalytic Converter

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
