150 Ton Bulk Lime Bin


     We recently fabricated a 150 ton "Load Out Bin" for Graymont, ( Havelock Division).
It was 60 feet tall by 28 feet in diameter and weighed approximately 50 tons..
     Following are some photos showing the process.

       
First the support columns were put into place.




Cone pieces were cut to shape, bent, brought to the site,
hoisted into place then welded together.



The cone was inverted, raised into place on the support columns. The upper section was then fabricated on the ground and is almost ready to lifed into place on top of the cone.




Staging is in place ready for the welders to receive the upper section
