This flare drum had a 15′ diameter shell, and was approximately 18′ by 18′ in shipping envelope. This was the biggest unit that Alps had undertaken to fabricate at the time. A very sophisticated piece of equipment, with complicated internals, the vessel weighed over 155,000 pounds when it was complete. We fabricated the vessel and partially insulated it prior to shipment in order to save work at the site. We shipped the vessel from Southwestern Ontario to Montreal by truck, to the end user, a major integrated oil company.
