AISC Painting And Blasting For Steel Stacks

A unique advantage of choosing to partner with T BAILEY, INC. is that our grounds hold both a fabrication facility and a state-of-the-art coatings facility. 

Our large coatings building had dedicated rooms for each step in the coatings process — a surface prep room, a paint room, and a heated drying room. The rooms are arranged in a large bay where rails in the floor allow T BAILEY, INC.’s coating experts to quickly wheel products through each stage of the coating process. This enables us to blast, coat, and dry steel stacks with maximum efficiency and turn-around time. 

Our blasting and AISC painting services include: 


  • Washes to remove oil, salt, and other contaminants from the steel. 
  • Machine and manual blasting to prepare steel for coating.
  • Stack metalizing (including zinc and aluminum). 
  • High-temperature paints and simple primers (including urethanes, epoxies, enamels, and vinyl ester coating). 


Quality Control And Testing Processes For Industrial Steel Stacks

From the start of fabrication, all the way through to coatings, we are committed to quality control and ensuring that the products we deliver will withstand the test of time. T BAILEY, INC.’s testing and quality control processes are led by our in-house AWS Certified Welding Inspectors. 

Our testing and quality assurance process includes: 

  • Visual inspection and step by step monitoring of all processes to ensure the best possible quality 
  • Radiographic Testing (RT)
  • Ultrasonic Testing (UT)
  • Dye Penetrant Testing (PT)
  • Magnetic Particle Testing (MT)
  • Heat treating and stress relieving
  • Hardness Testing
  • Impact Testing 
  • Positive Material Identification (PMI)
  • Full blast and lining profile measuring 
  • Dry film thickness testing
  • Environmental monitoring and reporting
  • Adhesion Testing
  • Lining continuity (holiday) testing

When you receive an industrial stack from T BAILEY, INC., you are receiving the result of a dedicated fabrication process and quality control process that we have spent nearly 30 years perfecting. Our experts ensure that your stack is crafted from the highest quality steel and is able to withstand the rigors of your job site for decades to come. 


Industrial Steel Stack Fabrication Process

T BAILEY, INC. is your one-stop-shop for industrial stacks. Our production process generally proceeds in the following steps: 

  1. We start with detailing. Come to us with the stack designs and our detailers will detail them per your drawings. 
  2. Cutting and rolling. We’ll cut the steel plate with our CNC plasma cutters and then roll it into cylinders. 
  3. Welding and assembly. Our expert welders will seal the longitudinal seams of each cylinder and then weld the cylinders together to form stack sections. 
  4. Hardware fitting. Some steel stacks require hardware. This could include manways, nozzles, stiffener rings, lifting lugs, and helical strakes. 
  5. The final step is blasting and coating. Our industrial coating division will prepare and treat the steal per your specifications.
