|INDUSTRIAL HEAT EXCHANGERS &
Adamson Global Technology Corp. we have modern, industrial-sized equipment
to get the big jobs done to your specifications. Our head machine can
turn out heads up to 14' diameter and up to 1" thick. The Haeusler
Plate rolls can roll 2 1/2" thick x 10' wide plate down to a 10'
diameter. They can also roll down to a diameter of 24" at 10' wide
and 1" thick.
There are 70 automatic and semi-automatic welding machines including Hobart Cyber-Tig 300 for tube-to-tube sheet welds. Adamson's Staff Welding Engineer assisted in developing this technology. We have a fully computerized six spindle drill with a 96" wide drilling and milling capacity that can drill up to 2" diameter holes through 5" plate. We also have a single spindle tape controlled drill with a 13'6" diameter bed with a drilling capacity of 11" thick. At Adamson we can drill a true hole through 9" thick carbon steel! Our 400-ton brake has a throat width of 12'. We utilize engine lathes of 24" and 14" and turret lathes of 60" and 24" diameters.
Horizontal and vertical boring mills to 72" in diameter are also available. For use in the manufacturing of heat exchangers, we have electronic and air operated tube expanders for 1/2" to 2" tubes plus a hydraulic tube bender that handles tubes up to 1-1/4"OD. The finest welding equipment operated by expert welders is available for use at all required stages of the manufacturing process. In our Quality Assurance Department, non-destructive testing equipment includes; liquid penetrant, ultrasonic, Brinnell hardness testing, magnetic particle inspection equipment consisting of Y5 yokes, and several X- ray units. Pressure-testing equipment includes Hydro Max, PSIG 5000 and Air Max, PSIG 100.
|Scope of Fabrication and Services|
and Tube Heat Exchangers, Pressure Vessels, Towers, Columns, Feedwater
Heaters, Reactors, Condensers, vaporators, Desuperheaters, and Storage
Hoppers-Bins, are customer fabricated to your specifications. Duplicates
of any units previously supplied by Old Dominion Fabricators are also
available. Mechanical and Thermal design functions are offered through
our in house consulting services by way of B-JAC International. B-JAC
Internationalprovides the state of the art in computer optimized thermal
and mechanical designs. Using a powerful intuitive software package
with interactive capabilities, we can quickly pose any number of "What
If" cases to evaluate different variables before selecting a final
design. Design standards include: A.S.M.E., T.E.M.A., AD Merkblatter
- DIN, CODAP, and others.
Global Technology Corp. are specialists in fabricating process shell
and tube exchangers of all types and sizes for the chemical and petrochemical
industries, refineries, utilities, the paper industry, etc. We can meet
your specifications and solve your unique problems. We meet all ASME
and TEMA (B,C, and R) requirements. Send Adamson your specifications
and we will work in partnership to provide the highest quality equipment
at a competitive cost.
size or type of pressure vessel you require, Adamson Global Technology
Corp. has the expertise, the facilities, and equipment to produce. We
strictly conform to all requirement of ASME (Sections I,IV, VIII Div
1) as well as AWS, and AWWA. We can produce units (tanks, columns and
towers) up to 14' diameter, utilizing up to 3" thick material and
a final lifting capacity of 95 tons. Let us serve your needs.
Adamson pressure vessels are of ASME welded construction. All threaded
openings, manholes, and nozzles are reinforced and installed by fusion
welding. Vertical or horizontal construction can be provided as required.
There are many construction codes governing design and fabrication of
tanks and pressure vessels required by industry, civilian and military
divisions of the federal government, states, and municipalities. The
majority of these codes are related to either the American Society of
Mechanical Engineers (A.S.M.E.) Boiler and Pressure Vessel Code or the
Underwriters' Laboratories, Inc. Standards for Storage of Hazardous
Liquids. Adamson is certified by the A.S.M.E. for production of fired
and unfired pressure vessels and boilers; and by the Underwriters Laboratories,
Inc. for production of tanks containing hazardous liquids. Adamson is
also qualified to produce tanks to other exacting specifications and
can qualify for additional special codes as required. In
addition to manufacturing tanks from steel, Adamson will design and
fabricate, to desired requirements and specifications, al types of storage
tanks and pressure tanks constructed of Cu-alloy, stainless or other
types of corrosion resistant material when requirements warrant their
American Society of Mechanical Engineers (A.S.M.E.) has established
rules governing the design, construction, labeling, inspection, and
installation of pressure tanks. The A.S.M.E. code symbol is your assurance
that a tank strictly conforms to all applicable A.S.M.E. specifications.
A Manufacturer's Data Report (certificate of inspection) must be verified
by an authorized independent inspection agency and must be supplied
with each A.S.M.E. stamped tank.
|PAINTING AND LINING|
can supply tanks painted in accordance with virtually any industrial,
military, or civilian painting specification. All Adamson tanks, unless
protection is otherwise specified, receive an industrial shop coat prior
has been used as a corrosion deterrent for steel water tanks for many
years and has given satisfactory results in thousands of cold water
installations. Although the protection cannot be considered as permanent
as that of cement or epoxy lining, and is not suitable for extended
operation much in excess of 100 F, galvanizing does extend that tank
life considerably at a reasonable cost.
lining is applied to the interior of steel pressure vessels to provide
protection against corrosion. The Adamson Dura-Flex cement lining is
designed to develop a high strength bond between the tank and the lining
and to safely withstand handling during shipment and installation. The
lining imparts no odor or taste to water and will withstand temperatures
up to 212 F.
linings are one of the modern alternatives to glass lining and phenolic
lining. They have been widely accepted and have provided excellent results
in eliminating corrosion in steel vessels containing water or other
is a two part system consisting of Dura-flex undercoat covered with
a solvent free two-component heavily cross-linked polymerized topcoat
which will provide a hard, durable, nontoxic inert finish. This coating
conforms to AWWA, USDA, FDA and, if required, NSF standards for potable
water and is unaffected at temperatures up to
200 F (tested at 73.4 F for NSF).
tanks are constructed so that the tank contents contact only non-ferrous
surfaces. To accomplish this, the 3# per square foot sheet copper lining
is electrically welded to the steel tank at every seam of the lining
and at every connection and opening. Every connection and opening is
electrically welded to the outer steel shell. Thus, the lining is strongly
and permanently attached to the outer reinforcing shell, the surface
of which is completely sealed off from corrosion forming air and water.
The result is a copper tank constructed inside of, and reinforced by
a steel outer
tank effectively giving a double walled construction. An inspection opening is provided to monitor the interstitial space
and detect any leak in the inner copper shell without removing the vessel from service.
is a two component, instant setting polyurethane developed to protect
potable water tanks. It will not impart any taste to the contents of
the tank and is approved for contact with potable water by various authorities.
Urethane can only be applied to tanks 60" in diameter and larger
with no internal trim.
complete line of Adamson welded steel supports is available. The three
most commonly used pressure vessel supports are: angle legs or base
rings for vertical tanks and saddles for horizontal tanks. Saddles can
be supplied with threaded bosses for pipe legs.
