MMW is currently cutting 16 foot diameter fume ducts from heights up to 90 feet. After cutting began, our crew discovered steel supports inside of the pipe that they were cutting. They quickly adapted to the situation and came up with a plan to cut the support inside. They started cutting small windows on the pipe to be able to get the equipment inside to cut out the steel support.
Midwest Mobile Waterjet (MMW) recently successfully completed a 300,000 million steel storage tank demolition at a papermill in Florida. The tank previously contained white liquor and was located in a turpentine handling area of the plant so a strict “Cold Cutting” requirement was in place. MMW utilized one of its portable 50,000 psi abrasive waterjet cutting system to successfully perform the work and cut the tank into pieces small enough for the crane to safely lift out of the area.
Midwest Mobile Waterjet recently provided waterjet cutting equipment to the Nairobi, Kenya based company, Belgravia Services so they could safely remove the floor of a petroleum storage tank for repairs. The work was performed at Belgravia’s Ndola, Zambia branch at the Indeni oil refinery. MMW also supplied training for safely operating and maintaining the cutting equipment and Jet Edge ultra-high pressure waterjet pump.
