Sulzer Pump Overview

  • KDW designed/built a 350,000 gallon test pit for the client's oversized pumps.
  • The excavation of the 30-foot deep hole required proper back slope, which had to be engineered in order to maintain safety for our people to work at the bottom of the pit.
  • The pit has a 2'6" thick concrete slab, 2'3" thick concrete end walls and 3'6" thick concrete side walls.
  • At 30 ft below natural grade at the bottom of the pit we installed a 30 ft long x 8 ft diameter pipe in the ground.
  • This pit was used to test the client's oversized pumps, the largest of which will pump 350,000 gallons of liquid per minute.

Working with KDW to build our state of the art High Bay/Heavy Lift Fabrication Shop was nothing short of pleasurable and professional.  Their knowledge of construction techniques is amazing and every sub-contractor that was used did impeccable work. We could not have chosen a more competent General Contractor on our million dollar expansion project.

In 2013 WIKA Process Solutions LP and GAYESCO INTERNATIONAL LCC started working with the KDW team to design & build our brand new manufacturing facility on a 13 acre lot in the Pasadena ship channel area. From start (concept & initial renderings) to finish (January 2015 moving in) the KDW team supported us in every step of the way.
