Taking on complex fabrication projects
Ontario manufacturer leverages state-of-the-art facility to compete on quality, design and service
Over the past several years, fabricator Alps Welding Ltd. has investment in a state-of-the-art 55,000-square-foot fabrication facility in Woodbridge, Ont., allowing it to manufacture custom equipment up to 18 feet in shipping envelope and weighing up to 70 tons.
Alps produces custom process equipment for sectors such as water treatment, steelmaking, petrochemicals, and oil and gas.
“We can produce equipment for a wide variety of specialized applications, including items that are suited to low-temperature or high-corrosion environments,” according to the company. “Our huge facility means we can easily handle jobs of almost any scale.”
For example, Alps Welding produced a carbon steel flare drum recently for a major integrated oil company. The vessel weighed more than 155,000 pounds, and had a shell 15 inches in diameter and shipping envelope of approximately 18 feet by 18 feet.
“We fabricated the drum, including the complicated internal components, and shipped it by truck from Southwestern Ontario to Montreal. But before we prepared the vessel for shipping, we partially insulated it to cut down on the work required at the site,” the company explains.
Part of the company’s success relates to its full-service portfolio, including design, assembly, installation of electrical and instrumentation components, and more.
