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.
