Finished units up to 400 HP can be test run prior to shipment.
Blast and Paint Facility
Per customer request, this area is responsible for the painted finish on all equipment and parts. Many steel components are also blasted between the burning and welding process to remove heavy deposits of mill scale from the steel plate.
Our state-of-the-art blast and paint facility is equipped with a High Wheelabrator Air Blast Booth and a High Global Finishing Booth. Additional features include a media reclaim with dust collection, elevated curing ability with 160° F heating system, and an explosion-proof finish dispensing room. McLanahan can provide standard SSPC-SP3 preparation and water base coating or an SSPC-SP6 and epoxy coating.
