In-Field Modifications ~ Custom Stainless Steel Laboratory Equipment
during installation to save the equipment, therefore saving our customer time and money. What was a potential monetary disaster that would have been
the result of closing operations until new equipment could have been fabricated and a second install trip could have been made to install the new equipment
was completely avoided by the expertise and hard work of the SFI install team.
the top shown below was too long, the left side column notch was 8″ short, and the right side sink was not centered to the existing plumbing. In addition
the duct work for the down draft unit had been installed prior to the top which also had to be modified on-site.
able to achieve this is because when SFI has install or field welding we send experienced fabricators that work in our production shop daily along
with SFI’s enclosed trailer of equipment and tools that are put together to handle most any situation or circumstance that may occur. SFI does not
sub-contract out this type of work which gives us a leading advantage when encountering complicated situations.
