Bevel Tech Group, Inc. uses the National Center for Construction Education and Research (NCCER) as a means of certification because NCCER develops standardized construction and maintenance curricula and assessments. The NCCER certification is nationally recognized by industry and holds craftsmen to the highest standards. Bevel Tech Group, Inc. has recently ascertained candidate status through NCCER so that we may become an NCCER Accredited Training Sponsor and an Accredited Assessment Center. This is another step Bevel Tech Group, Inc. has taken towards our commitment to providing a highly trained, certified staff who in turn will provide work of the highest quality to our customers.
Bevel Tech Group, Inc was recently awarded and completed a job in South Louisiana for a major fabricator to precisely check five 20-ft diameter flanges using our FARO Vantage laser dimensioning tool. The job scope included measuring the flatness and circularity of the bolt circle of the five 20-ft diameter windmill transition flanges to the supporting tower. The customer needed precise verification that the flanges maintained tolerances after welding on the pieces were completed.
In the event the flanges would have exceeded the maximum tolerance range, Bevel Tech Group, Inc would be contracted to machine these flanges, in place, at their 80-ft high location on the deck platform high on the tower.
Due to the tight time frame, Bevel Tech Group, Inc had tooled up and was ready to machine the surfaces of any or all five 20-ft flanges. Our large flange facing machine was custom modified beforehand so that we could be immediately ready to perform the job, if needed, and still meet the strict deadline. In the end, all five flanges were within tolerance and the job remained on schedule for the Customer.
A client of ours recently called us and said that a brand new 40 inch stainless steel spool piece, elbow, and flange were damaged at their job site while attempting to set up the spool piece for installation. The new gasket surface was scarred badly enough that they did not want to attempt to install the pipe spool without getting the flange and gasket surface repaired.
After the call, the Client delivered the large spool piece to our shop that afternoon and we immediately grabbed our 58 inch OD flange facing machine and started the repairs for them. We were able to resurface the flange face and gasket area and made sure the raised gasket surface met proper specifications. The Client was able to pick up the spool piece the next morning, resulting in less than an 18 hour complete turnaround from site to site. Needless to say the client was quite happy with our work and repair time.
