Remove and Replace

Remove and Replace

Innovation that sets a new standard for what's possible.


Every component in every plant has a finite lifespan.

It's a fact all industries have to live with. When a heavy component needs to be replaced, whether due to failure, plant modification or expansion, the challenge is to remove the old and replace with the new in a manner that emphasizes safety while minimizing plant disruption and downtime. Often, space constraints make the procedure all the more challenging, requiring the entire logistical process of lifting, removal, transport and replacement be exceptionally well planned and coordinated.

This is where Barnhart excels. We specialize in providing innovative solutions for removing and replacing tough to reach plant equipment in congested industrial sites. Barnhart has developed unique custom tools that allow our network of professionals to create solutions that best optimize project schedules and manage costs. In fact, over the past four decades Barnhart has developed rigging techniques and equipment that have revolutionized the way components can be lifted, upended and transported - safely and efficiently. And we have done so for a broad range of industries and a wide variety of plants.

Barnhart's vast experience and expertise, along with our rigorous safety standards, assures you of the most efficient and cost-effective component replacement during an outage, shutdown or turnaround. As one of our customers put it: we make the impossible, possible.

The Barnhart Advantage

Save Time and Money

Sometimes the "way we've always done it" isn't the fastest, most cost effective, or even the safest. Check out Barnhart's innovative approaches that might move you from the old way to the best way.

Minimize Disruption

More cranes, more people, more equipment usually doesn't just mean more money it also usually means more interruption. Our ideas seek to minimize or eliminate disruption to normal operations at your site.

Innovative Solutions

By involving our engineers and rigging experts early, Barnhart develops custom solutions that can save you time and money. Early involvement often allows us to see options that others can't and create innovative solutions that may not be at the back-end of a project. We can make a huge difference by working as a partner to initiate a well thought-out, logical plan that safely reduces downtime and overall cost.

Barnhart Toolbox

Barnhart gives you access to custom designed and fabricated specialized rigging that cannot be found anywhere else — tools specially engineered to safely save you time and money. Barnhart also has one of the largest crane inventories in North America. When our inventory is combined with out national network of branches and other rigging tools there are very few jobs we can't handle.
