Our Steel Plate Fabrication Services
Steel plate offers many advantages over competing materials. For example, shop-built and field-erected tanks constructed with steel plate are significantly stronger than tanks assembled from concrete or aluminum.
Our steel plate is durable, long-lasting, won’t break or crack, and is an ideal material for a wide variety of applications, including:
- Shop-built tanks
- Field-erected tanks
- Pressure vessels
- Casing & piling
- Penstock & bi/trifurcations
- Industrial steel stacks
- Steel ramps
- Pile cap frames
- Dolphin caps
- Steel fenders
- And many other civil, industrial, and military applications
To help you understand the full scope of what T BAILEY INC. can do for you, here is an in-depth breakdown of our steel plate fabrication capabilities:
Codes & Standards
We fabricate in accordance with API 650, AWWA D100, AWWA C200, UL 142, UL F921, UL 2085, ASME Section VIII Div 1, ASME U-Stamp, ASTM A252, and all other applicable codes and standards. T BAILEY INC. is also ASME NBIC R-Stamp certified, enabling us to perform repairs and alterations on already completed ASME pressure vessels.
Design & Engineering
We offer comprehensive design and engineering services for tanks, reservoirs, and pressure vessels. Simply let us know the capacity you need. We’ll run performance, strength, and cost calculations to help you determine the kind of tank you need and whether a single large reservoir or multiple smaller tanks are the best solutions for your storage need.
As for casing, piling, penstock, and similar applications, we don’t supply start-to-finish design services but offer engineering support. For example, we can provide geometry assistance, CAD modeling, and performance calculations.
Fabrication & Construction
Our dedicated crew members are skilled in all aspects of steel plate fabrication and complete the entire fabrication process in-house, including cutting the plate to size, rolling, forming, drilling holes, conforming, joint prep, and welding assembly.
All our welders are AWS D1.1 certified and are skilled in a wide range of qualified welding procedures, including submerged arc welding, stick welding, gas metal arc welding, dual shield welding, and more.
As for the equipment used by our steel plate fabricators, our expansive facility houses:
- Several 20-ton overhead bridge cranes
- Plate bending rolls capable of rolling 2.75” x 10’ wide steel plate
- CNC plasma cutting machines
- 11’ x 50’ water table cutters
- Forklifts capable of lifting up to 55 tons
- RT hydraulic cranes with a 60-ton capacity
And many more pieces of equipment, all dedicated to helping us deliver large and complex steel plate projects on time.
A huge advantage of partnering with T BAILEY INC. for steel plate fabrication is that our fab shop is equipped with an in-house industrial prep and coating facility. This enables us to move parts straight from fabrication to coatings, promoting efficiency and reducing costs by eliminating the need to transport parts to a third-party coatings company.
Our paint shop features advanced automation to help us deliver on tight schedules. This includes tank and vessel turning roll sets, holding parts weighing up to 100-tons, and an innovative automatic blasting system.
Quality Control & Testing
T BAILEY INC.’s steel plate fabricator is committed to providing the highest level of workmanship. To this end, all our processes are monitored by a dedicated AWS Certified Welding Inspector, a CWB Certified Welding Supervisor. Before shipment, all products are subjected to rigorous testing and inspection in accordance with the applicable codes and standards.
To help you keep costs as low as possible, we can ship steel plate projects via barge or truck. Each method comes with its own set of advantages, and we’ll provide you with a cost breakdown to make the best decision for your unique situation.
In addition to steel plate fabrication, coating, and delivery, T BAILEY INC. also provides start-to-finish site preparation for tank, reservoir, and pressure vessel projects. This includes site grading, tree clearing, security installation, foundation and pump house construction, and other necessary site work.
