Large ASME Reactor Moves


Hooper Welding recently completed manufacture of the heaviest reactors ever constructed by Hooper, and maybe ever constructed from start to finish in Canada. The Reactor has been completed and moved to our staging yard in Oakville, where it will be fired in a furnace over the next few weeks.

How big is big? This Reactor is 162"ID and over 140' overall length. It weighs over 1,350,000 lbs. and is constructed of 5.5" thick SA387-22-2 with 347SS weld overlay.

Later this summer it will ship on the largest rail car in the world, the 36 axle, CEBX-800 Schnabel Rail Car.
