Setting Tanks Through the Rafters

September 7, 2017

lifting tanks into the rafters

The rafters at our SFG shop are 38' above the floor. This tank is 37' tall and taller than our cranes.

It was built lying down and very carefully sat upright for hydrotesting, inspections and passivating interior and exterior surfaces.

What you don't see in these images is the crane outside, dropping cable through the roof to raise the top of the tank up close to the rafters. The second crane inside steadied the bottom of the tank. Actual time of the video footage is 30 minutes.
