Refax, Inc. was contracted by a steel producer in Northwest Indiana to fabricate a fume hood. The primary function of a fume hood is to capture gases that are produced when alloys are injected in molten steel for specific types of product. Refax worked from customer supplied 2D CAD prints. The fabrication was built completely out of A516 Grade 70 steel. The entire project was completed with our company's abilities involving burning, bending/forming, fitting, arc welding per AWS standards, and our quality control process. The hood had to be fabricated in two separate pieces, an upper section and a lower section.
The dual part fabrication was due to transportation and installation limitations. This required us to match mark parts to ensure minimal fit up issues for onsite installation. There were no such issues.
