Replacement Tank in 7 Days

One of our customers had an emergency – a tank that had been failing for some time, finally was no longer usable. Typical story where the accounts/finance department isn’t really interested in the engineering/maintenance teams’ request for budget allocation for equipment that needs to be replaced before it is too late and there is a disaster – even if that disaster is only loss of production [I say “only” in the context that someone didn’t get hurt].

We were able to measure up and fabricate a replacement in 7 days [Sure we could have done it in less with 24 hour shifts but it wasn’t that urgent].
