South Plainfield, NJ, United States, 2005/11/16 - Dallas Contracting Co., Inc., a specialized contractor recently completed the salvage of used equipment and demolition of several structures from a former insulation manufacturing company in NJ..
Dallas Contracting Co., Inc. (Dallas Contracting) was contracted to perform both interior and exterior demolition services as well as salvaging used equipment. The inside of the first floor of the building required interior demolition of all equipment, piping, electrical conduits and a complete gut-out of the boiler room. The outside wrecking work consisted of removing several storage tanks, a silo and dust handling equipment and associated ductwork.
The interior demolition work began by first removing all piping, catwalks, duct work and electrical conduit. This was accomplished by laborers with sawsalls on scissor lifts. A skid steer was also used to help load out the scrap steel and debris. Demolition in the boiler room consisted of removing the old boiler, several compressors and all conduit and piping. This work was accomplished using laborers utilizing torches on a scissor lift while a skid steer loaded and removed the materials.
The removal of the above items was done first to make it easier to rig out the salvageable equipment from the building. Equipment that was saved consisted of eight (8) 500-gallon reactors that were previously used by the manufacturer to make foam. Ancillary pumps and motors were also salvaged. The reactors were carefully rigged out of the facility and placed on trucks to be inventoried for sale. Dallas Contracting was able to offset some of the cost of the project to the client through the sale of this used equipment.
Exterior demolition work consisted of removing five (5) storage tanks, one (1) silo, a pre-fabricated steel canopy and dust handling equipment and ductwork. The dust handling equipment and ductwork was demolished using a Komatsu PC 220 excavator with a grapple attachment. Laborers with sawsalls on a high reach were also utilized to facilitate the demolition work. Two of the outside tanks were not salvageable and were demolished due to their age and loss of structural integrity. The outside steel canopy was also demolished using the Komatsu PC 220 excavator with grapple attachment. However, the 32-foot silo and two 12,000-gallon stainless steel tanks were salvaged for sale as used equipment. The silo was dismantled into several pieces, for ease of transport, using a crane and high reach. The salvage of this equipment was also used to offset some of the cost of the demolition work to the client.
The work was completed in two (2) weeks without incident or injury.Dallas Contracting Co., Inc. is an expert in demolition and equipment salvage.
