The Gator is a remote controlled tank cleaning unit we built for
Veolia Environmental Services. It is driven into large tanks to clean the walls of hazardous materials. Its infrared lights cut through the dark and mist while recording all operations from the safety of a control booth.
This is a test of the unit running up a ramp and squeezing through a manway as it would enter a tank in the field.
The Slot Cutter is used to square up the walls in potash mines. Its unique cutting head with a 16 foot cutting blade, can spin 360º and fold over to travel through the mine.
In a hot-job shop you never know what will come through the doors.

Old Hatch Boiler Box
Take these worn boxes that attach to the sides of boilers. We needed to reuse some of the components, but build new, stronger frames.
These new Boiler Boxes will fit just like the old ones, but last a lot longer.

A boiler gets hot, really hot. And when it does, the walls expand.
To help control expansion, one solution is to cut slots in the walls and weld “Expansion Folds” over top of these slots.
Welded Expansion Fold
This gives the plate a little more room to expand as the pressure builds in the unit. They are placed around the plate helping it expand as it heats.

This is the first field test of the remote controlled potash loader in a coal yard in Ashland, KY.
This is the first test of the unit in an actual potash mine in Canada.
