Fabrication of an Oil Reservoir Hydraulic Tank for the Power Transformers Industry
Fabri-Tech has been an industry leading provider of custom fabricated tanks for more than 50 years. Our experienced engineering team and full service, modern manufacturing facility enable us to deliver custom solutions that consistently exceed customer expectations.
Our wide range of skills and equipment were put to use fabricating the hydraulic oil reservoir tank shown here. Used in the manufacture of a medium power self-cooled transformer, it featured overall dimensions of 1,425 mm in length, 994 mm in depth, and 582 mm in height. We utilized various thicknesses of hot rolled pickled and oiled steel plate for its construction, and fabrication methods included shearing, cutting, punching and bending, as well a variety of machining processes. Assembly operations included execution of defect free, uniform welds that ensured the integrity of the finished product. We applied an epoxy primer for rust protection and to allow maximum adhesion of the protective gray urethane paint finish.
We built this high quality reservoir tank to within ±1.0 mm tolerances and with leak-tight, durable construction that would withstand the extreme stresses of its intended application.
