February, 2011 PSR completed the detubing of 3 retired condensers located at the old 452 MW Florida Power Corp/Progress Energy PL Bartow Generating Station. ST Petersburg, FL.
Prior to demolition of the plants superstructure two seprate pulling crews/pulling lines extracted 23,500 Cupronickel tubes and 18,300 SEA-CURE high chromium stainless steel tubes over a period of 5 weeks. Removal of the front water boxes and use of gas powered man lifts to lift the men into position against the tube sheet greatly expedited pulling production of the extra long tubes.
The detubing work was part of a larger demolition project being undertaken by Frontier Industrial Corp. of Buffalo,New York. PSR jointly participated in the project by providing all necessary process tube removal tools, support equipment, tool technicians and supervision oversight to facilitate Frontier's labor crew in the extraction, chopping ,weighing and packaging of the 41,800 scrap tubes.
