Rock Hill Mechanical Corporation has fabricated many large Equipment Modules, Pipe Racks, and Pip Spools for many Ethanol Facilities across the Midwest. Many of these large Modules were made up of several smaller component modules. During the Ethanol boom, the General Contractor would be working on typically three to four new facilities a year. They typically had 5 large multiple component modules per facility. RHMC typically receives a PO to complete 3 to 4 “R2” modules at a time, as well as 3 to 4 “R4″ modules. We typically would fabricate the piping, assemble the structural steel, install the equipment, paint and insulate the piping and equipment, and dry fit the modules. RHMC would also pre-wire the power wiring and controls wiring as required. Once the owner approved the dry fit, RHMC would dis-assemble, prep for shipping and shrink wrap the modules for shipping. The typical module component consisted of 45′ long x 12′-6” wide x 12′-6 tall and weighed an average of 40,000 to 50,000#.
RHMC would store these modules at our fabrication facilities until the site was ready to accept them.
