Galvanized Steel Pipe Rack for a pharmaceutical company

Galvanized Steel Pipe Rack for a pharmaceutical company


A pharmaceutical company in France installed a new chilled water system at one of its plants.  As part of the installation, a pipe rack was required to arrange the utility pipelines and cables between the equipment and a building. The hot-tip galvanized steel rack was subcontracted to our group and was about 20m long, 8.5m high and was fixed to the ground at two points.
