Large Stacked Tray Tower


Hooper Welding provided complete design and manufacture of a Stacked Clad Tray Tower to a major refinery in the United States in 2009. This Stacked Tray Tower was constructed from SA516-70N complete with 316L clad and weld overlay. It was 108” ID and over 120 feet in length. Construction took 8 months from receipt of material to construct the 1.375” thick tower.

Hooper Welding provided full value service by not only manufacturing and testing this tower to ASME Section VIII, Division 1, but by coordinating the complete logistics plan. Too large to travel by rail or road, the plan involved specialized loading and coordination at the Port of Hamilton, Ontario. Special arrangements were made to load the ship, and the tie-down operation was completed in record time. From load out to delivery at the customer’s dockside, took 10 days complete.

Hooper Welding not only lived up to the challenge of manufacturing a complex tower, but providing the logistics to fulfill the requirements to ship, and deliver a quality product to the customer’s requirements.
