This month WHECO Richland repaired a Jib Strut for a customer from out of state. A new replacement was no longer available which made a repair the logical way forward. Both main chords on the strut were damaged and one was beyond straightening. Samples of the chord material were taken to determine the availability of matching material. Once known an OSHA Compliant, Engineered Repair Procedure was crafted and accepted by the customer.
WHECO Richland first removed the damaged chord section and replaced with a new piece. The rest of the chords were tuned to straight and other miscellaneous repairs performed to return the piece into a certifiable and safe condition.
Return to the Customer
After completing all necessary repair steps, a third-party inspector was brought in to verify the welds after which the engineer signed off on the repair. The finished piece was then painted to original colors and returned to the customer. All of this was able to happen within 15 days from the initial start date putting the job strut back into the income stream.
