Heavy Industrial AK Steel Caster Emergency Repair

Emergency shutdown to perform repairs around the clock over a holiday weekend preventing excessive production downtime.

Inside the Project

Kokosing was called in on an emergency repair to replace a worn outboard shaft bearing on the Basic Oxygen Furnace. A temporary frame and jacking system was installed to raise the 1,000 ton furnace in order to replace the bearing.

Why it matters

Emergency maintenance of the basic oxygen furnace was required to prevent further damage of the adjacent Bull Gear that would have resulted in excessive production downtime. Kokosing performed the replacement around the clock over a two week period to get our client back to full production.
