Brahma Installed a new furnace in an existing smelter facility in Columbus, MT for Stillwater Mining. Our installation included new modifications to a material feed system and controls.
Brahma’s biggest challenge on the project was installing the new furnace inside an existing building without the use of an overhead crane. To overcome this challenge, Brahma designed and constructed a unique large capacity monorail system that allowed all hoisting to occur within the existing structure.
During construction Brahma identified alignment issues that would have resulted in premature failures if left uncorrected. Brahma corrected the existing issues allowing moving components to function properly.
When issues outside of our control affected the schedule, Brahma implemented a night shift and adjusted its workforce to meet the needs of the client.
