Raw plate Rolling

The bobtail shell starts as a flat sheet of plate steel. It enters the plate roller to be formed into a barrel.

Design & Manufacturing

Once we have a round shell there are various steps, tests, inspections, and processes before blasting.

Finished Bobtail

After the bobtail has been manufactured it gets blasted, cleaned, two coats of primer, and then it gets painted.
