Sofidel America

September 2021

Problem

We were asked to replace the warped refiner base for Sofidel America located in Haines City, Florida.

Strategy

Prior to the project taking place, we reverse engineered the existing carbon steel base to manufacture a new one in order to minimize the downtime for the customer.

Then, we arrived on site with all the materials and a new base. We removed the refiner from the carbon steel base so we could install a sole plate to place the new Stainless steel refiner base. We adjusted for correct elevation and proceeded to form and pour high strength Epoxy grout.

Outcome

We connected the refiner to the base, installed the electric motor, and performed a precision alignment. The project was complete in four days.
