Project: Saltcake Tower and Calciner Dismantling
Year: 2016 Duration: 1 month
Weyerhaeuser contracted with Hayden Wrecking Corporation to dismantle a saltcake tower and calciner at its facility in Oglethorpe, GA. Both structures were in close proximity to structures that were to remain in place. Hayden Wrecking lead trained demolition craftsmen utilized manlifts, cutting torches and a hydraulic crane to dismantle the saltcake tower at the higher elevations. Hayden Wrecking then utilized a Ultra-High Demolition Excavator equipped with a rotating shear to dismantle the saltcake tower to the ground. Due to the thickness of material Hayden Wrecking lead trained demolition craftsmen utilized manlifts and cutting torches to dismantle the calciner and were further assisted by its Ultra High Demolition Excavator equipped with rotating shear. The salvageable material generated from the saltcake tower and calciner were taken to a recycling firm and Hayden Wrecking assumed the salvage value of the materials.
