Pantex erects nearly 400 piping metal supports

Workers at the Pantex Plant are in the process of erecting nearly 400 metal supports that will be used to hang approximately 4,800 linear feet of new steam and condensate piping. The steam lines, which are as large as 14 inches in diameter, will run from the onsite steam generating plant to scores of buildings, where the steam will be used for various processes.

The $10 million project, which began construction in September 2012, will replace trenched steam lines with elevated lines that are less prone to corrosion. The project is being executed by a pair of local small businesses and is on schedule for completion in September.
