Why was Mark Steel chosen to build the largest above ground thickener in North America? Well, we are sure that it involved a number of factors, including price and the ability to meet tight deadlines.
Possibly, the most significant factor was that both structural and plate fabrication could be handled at one shop. Rather than involving several fabricators and making multiple calls to insure coordination, our client could oversee the entire fabrication at one facility.
Another key factor was our ability to perform large trial assemblies at our facilities. This served as an important safeguard for both our engineering firm client and Mark Steel.
Since that project, Mark Steel has fabricated several more thickeners, but it is important to note that we have also built autoclaves, anode furnaces, floatation cells, chutes, hoppers, and ductwork.
