Mesa was contracted for the installation of a new coater technology. The coating is applied as a gas which is absorbed by the glass during the just-formed sheet phase, while the glass is still molten. The new coater was added to the existing glass line in a very dated facility.
Mesa’s scope of supply was to provide four process skids for the process additives. Structural, mechanical, electrical, instrumentation and controls engineering and design, as well as the systems integration for the skid components were also provided by Mesa. The skids were fabricated by Mesa, including structural steel, process piping, and electrical and controls wiring. Mesa was also responsible for pre-operational and functional testing.
Other elements of the project included:
- Procurement of all purchased components
- Fabrication of all appropriate components
- Electrical panels, process instrumentation and electrical wiring
- Pressure testing, equipment cleanup and shipping
