Certain design projects require more than a standard cylinder product. We can work with you to design a custom cylinder to satisfy the needs and challenges of your application. Our custom rolling process allows us to provide our customers with round cylinders at a competitive price. The capacity of our hydraulic drive process is 3/4 inches thick and 10 feet wide, and 17 inches in diameter. Thicker plates can be rolled at less than 120-inch widths.
Custom Plasma Cutting
Gladwin Tank Manufacturing has installed a 2011 MultiCam plasma burning table with a cutting area of 8′ x 16′. The table uses Hypertherm’s newest high-definition cutting technology. The plasma system is an HPR260HD that allows us to cut 2.5-thick plate steel with nice edges. We can pierce through 1.25″ easily and have pierced 1.5″ thick 316L with it. The cut-edge finish on the stainless plate is clean using exotic gas mixes, and the plasma system produces weld-ready parts. This system fills the gap between regular plasma cutting and waterjet cutting. This results in the end product being close to waterjet cut sizes – and edge results with faster cut speeds than conventional plasma cutting. This may be the perfect solution if you want higher quality parts than the traditional burning of plasma but don’t want to pay waterjet prices.

We do Hy-Torc Stealth portable unit torquing to the specified torque for the service gasket. All vessels we ship out that have permanent blind flanges with a service gasket installed will have the studs torqued to the required ft-lbs to seat the gasket. This extra service is standard on all permanent flanges we install. We have hand-use torque wrenches that are verified and calibrated on our Apex Torque tester up to 600 ft-lbs, and when the job gets big, we use the Hy-Torc Stealth portable unit.
