install two large lyophilizers
Complex Rigging in Pharmaceutical Plant - NJ

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.

R. Baker and Son All Industrial Services, an expert rigging, demolition, machinery moving and equipment relocation contractor, recently completed the relocation of the USS Intrepid's propeller at the USS Intrepid Sea, Air & Space Museum in New York.

Under a previous contract, R. Baker & Son All Industrial Services (R. Baker & Son) had previously staged the propeller while a steel display frame was being fabricated. The propeller is solid brass, weighs 28,000 lbs and is 15 feet 6 inches from blade tip to blade tip.

This next phase of the project required R. Baker & Son to lift the propeller from a horizontal position into a vertical position and mount the propeller onto the frame. The frame then needed to be relocated to another part of the carrier for permanent display.
