Brookhaven National Laboratories Long Island, NY Shrink Wrap
ASI was hired to complete shrink wrapping on a very delicate and important move of a Scientific Cryostat from Brookhaven National Laboratories located on Long Island, NY that would be shipped by truck and by barge. The shrink wrapping had been contracted to another well-known shrink wrapping company from Florida and 11 days from the move the shrink wrapping company decided they were not going to show up.
A call was placed to ASI to inquire about the possibilities of getting a crew up to New York from MD to do the job. ASI was happy to help the customer out. The cryostat was removed from the building and ASI went to work. The task was to protect the cryostat from any salt spray during its time on a shipping barge. This included the sensitive pumps and gauges located on the front.
The cryostat measured over 50 Ft. in diameter. The red skeleton was designed and built by the shipping company.
ASI personnel installed padding over the required points and wrapped the cryostat in a single day.
The shipping company was elated by the professionalism of the ASI crew and made comment that they were happy to have found us and that our work was superior to the company they had used in the past who ultimately left them hanging only 11 days earlier.
The cryostat’s journey would take it north through the great lakes and down the Mississippi to Indiana.
