Replacement of Aluminum Melting Furnace
R.T. Patterson successfully completed the replacement of a Aluminum Melting Furnace, the rebuilding of a Holding Furnace, and the repair and/or replacement of Casting Pit equipment as required. Our actions included modifying three sets of furnaces in the Ingot Plant to ensure uniformity and improvements. We utilized Autodesk Inventor 3D modeling to design the replacement furnace and created detailed drawings of all its components, including ancillary equipment. Additionally, we developed technical specifications for equipment procurement and installation. Our team evaluated bids, made recommendations for purchase orders and contracting services, and maintained a comprehensive project schedule. We provided round-the-clock construction assistance during a 45-day outage, ensuring a smooth and efficient process.
