Cerro Matoso - Columbia, South America
The Cerro Matoso project was a six-module, self-cleaning M-Pulse baghouse system, including inlet/outlet manifolds, support structure, stair tower, and an enclosed penthouse for the top load modules.
What made this project stand out from others was the adding planning and logistics needed to fabricate and procure all the individual pieces and components at IAC’s manufacturing facilities in Kansas, then containerize everything for shipment to Columbia, South America where a local steel fabrication and erection company, without experience in baghouse systems, was to install this engineered baghouse system.
The M-Pulse baghouse and related structures were fabricated as flat panels, structural steel members, stair tower sections, duct work sections, clips, brackets, fasteners, etc. in order to stack logically into containers. When the flat panels and pieces were being fabricated and painted, a detailed “match marking” plan was used, and these markings were applied to the parts and identified on the field installation drawings, bills of materials, and packing lists.
Miscellaneous equipment such as hoists, electrical cabinets, sheet metal penthouse building, man doors, pneumatic valves, switches, sensors, level indicators, touch up paint, etc. were also purchased and loaded into the containers.
IAC organized and coordinated the logistics with the customer’s worldwide logistics company as well as with US Customs and Colombian Customs agencies. The containers were shipped in numbered, sequential order so that they arrived at Cerro Matoso in que to match with the fabrication schedule.
IAC designed the M-Pulse baghouse system, documented the installation and assembly process, systematically loaded, and documented the contents of each container, and coordinated the shipping of the containers so that the installation team in Colombia could assemble the complete system.
The success of the project was aided by IAC’s bilingual staff keeping lines of communication open with the customer and their experienced steel fabrication and erection company. The field crew was able to open the proper containers and follow the detailed installation and assembly drawings. The customer was impressed because the complete system was installed properly, started up on schedule, and has continued to perform just like IAC said it would.
The baghouse yesterday had one month of continuous operation. Personally, and in name of our team and Cerro Matoso, I want to say thanks to IAC, your experience, quality standards and all the effort of your team that was performed in our bag house project execution, thanks a lot."
