Complex Rigging in Pharmaceutical Plant - NJDescription:R. Baker & Son recently performed a rigging project to install two large lyophilizers on the second floor of a large pharmaceutical plant.
Because some pieces were as large as 60,000 lbs., the floor had to be reinforced along the route in which the loads were to be rigged before work could begin.
A structural engineer helped the Baker team design the support system to shore up existing steel members and approved the final drawings, and the floor reinforcements were constructed.Specs:
