Dallas Contracting Co., Inc., (website: http://www.dallascontracting.com) a specialized contractor providing demolition services, onsite concrete aggregate crushing, equipment salvage and scrap metal recycling to various industries, recently completed the removal of an old rotary dryer and re-installation of a new rotary dryer at a chemical and process plant in New Jersey.


South Plainfield, NJ -- (ReleaseWire) -- 07/10/2006 --Dallas Contracting Co., Inc. (Dallas Contracting) was tasked with the removal and re-installation of a 43 foot by 4-foot diameter rotary dryer (weight approximately 20,000 lb) during a chemical and process plant maintenance shutdown. The old dryer was cribbed and rigged in one piece utilizing two forklifts, one 10,000 lbs and another 15,000 lbs. Once the old dryer was removed, additional items were also removed including associated piping, concrete stanchions, hot end and wet end seals, two (2) guide rollers, drive base, pinion gears, gear box, motor, four (4) trunions and bearings. Oils were drained, captured and placed into drums for disposal. The old dryer was composed of 3/16 stainless steel and was eventually cut up offsite for scrap metal.

After removal of the old rotary dryer, Dallas Contracting installed the new rotary dryer. This included rigging the new dryer in place and installing new trunions (four total), guide rollers, drive base, reducer, motor and pinion gear. In addition, the hot end and wet end seals were reinstalled. Dallas Contracting worked with the manufacturer’s representative to properly set drive gear clearance and steer the dryer with the trunions.

Dallas Contracting was able to meet the project’s demanding safety requirements and time frame. All work was completed within the two-week shutdown by working night shifts and also on weekends. The project was completed on schedule and without incident or injury.
