Rock Hill Mechanical Corporation has fabricated many large Equipment Modules, Pipe Racks, and Pipe Spools for several 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 typically be working on three to four new facilities a year. They usually had 5 large multiple component modules per facility. RHMC would receive a PO to complete 3 to 4 “R2” modules at a time, as well as 3 to 4 “R4″ modules. We 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 was of 45′ long x 12′-6” wide x 12′-6” tall and weighed an average of 40,000 to 50,000 lbs.
RHMC would store these modules at our fabrication facilities until the site was ready to accept them.
