A U.S. supplier of leaf spring suspension systems was experiencing issues with the quality control and turnaround times of its provider of electrocoating (e-coating) services.
A global commercial vehicle supplier was searching for a strategic partner with the expertise, capabilities, and capacity to serve as the sole metal finishing vendor for its operations in Texas.
A leading, global supplier of commercial aircraft seats consistently faced the challenge of fulfilling orders requiring fast turnaround times.
When commercial aircraft were grounded by the FAA for corrosion of seat components, the supplier of the defective parts faced the challenge of replacing them very quickly to return the aircraft to service.
One of the challenges in the design of a power plant substation is how to maximize its potential while maintaining safe conditions for workers and the surrounding environment.
AZZ Galvanizing – Crowley was proud to help with the construction of a recreational aquatic center, and was recently recognized for its work on the project by the American Galvanizers Association for Excellence in Hot Dip Galvanizing.
Aging electrical infrastructure is something that all utilities and industries face. Dealing with the consequences of failed or failing equipment requires forward planning and the right technical support.
When natural disasters strike, the resulting power outages can adversely affect both businesses and homeowners. In such situations, major utilities are under extreme pressure to restore electrical power supplies as quickly as possible.
This is a suburban bridge with high traffic volume passing over and under. De-icing solutions and salts have been applied regularly over the years.
Substations often require new equipment to upgrade or expand existing facilities or replace damaged systems. This often requires interfacing to equipment from varying manufactures and technologies of existing equipment.
Many of the same challenges presented by a retrofit project are also encountered when expanding existing stations. There are various interfaces to be designed and restrictive outages schedules that must be adhered to.
Hydroelectric generating stations often require transmission of power over large vertical distances. Transmitting power at transmission voltages rather than generation voltage, is more economical.
Every station layout design has certain physical boundaries to which the transmission components must adhere. If the space available precludes the use of air-insulated bus and a lack of available land prevents continuous transmission line at ground level or below grade, an elevated bus system provides a potential solution.
Buried installations offer the advantage of lower installation costs in open areas. Trenches can be used when crossing roads or installing in areas where water tables are close to ground level.
The plant, located in the Middle East, is designed to recycle concrete products. The facility is subjected to constant UV rays, 120 degree plus heat, sand storms, as well as the abrasive conditions created by an aggregate crusher.
Ski lifts need to be built to withstand cold winter conditions and the abrasive dings and dents often incurred to recreation equipment. This is the main reason why the ski lift at a resort was hot-dip galvanized (HDG).
With scores of silver seating rows spanning far into the distance, racetracks are cherished attractions for any community. Rust from corrosion only dulls the city’s charm. For decades, the only corrosion protection used to protect the massive collection of steel used in this structure was paint.
This suburban community, known for its natural resources, has a history of taking a long term view of community development. Establishing parks and creating quality, recreational and open space opportunities is a high priority for the city.
Spanning eleven active railroad tracks, the oil bridge needs durable protection from the rough, corrosive industrial environment of the railway system.
Committed to longevity and quality, one of the largest tractor trailer manufacturers in the US approached AZZ in need of protection for their rear frame and bumper assemblies.
The trailer manufacturer prides itself on building tough trailers built for tough duty. In 2010, they made the decision to start hot-dip galvanizing their trailers to provide a competitive advantage.
As an established innovator in the trailer industry, the manufacturer noticed corrosion was impeding their charge to provide high quality, durable, long lasting products to their customers.
Located in the harsh environment of a limestone quarry, the aggregate screening plant must withstand constant bombardment of small and large pieces of limestone rocks.
It is a dirty job, but somebody has got to do it. A tough, hardy little powerhouse, the dredge works up and down the Mississippi River on the east bank to provide access to the cruise terminals.
