PSR provided technicians, an array of tube cutters, tube production pullers, tube choppers, support equipment and custom rigging systems to the Spirtas Wrecking Co. to detube 6 large condensers located at the 500 megawatt Ameren -Venice Power Station.
To separate union pulling crews were supplied with automated tooling and pulled 60,000 cupronickel tubes as well as the cut tube stubs from the backside tube sheets in approximately 40 days.
Our tube removal technology and technical support services greatly reduce material extraction costs, handling efforts and increase the value of scrap compared to alternate recovery methods. The project was completed to the satisfaction of the customers in early November 2010.
