postheadericon The Strength of an Army

Ever since we arrived, Dan Ritter and I both contemplated  how we were going to remove a bad oxygen plant on a raised deck and replace the unit with a new Kaeser compressor; each weighing well over a ton. Where there is a wish, there is a way! We spoke to one of the facilities guys and he arranged for a small army of hospital workers, fundi’s (skilled mechanics and even a delivery person all of which came to our aide. We had a multitude of obstacles; with only a hand truck the team removed the larger of the units (1250 lbs) so that the raised deck could accept the new unit.  The process took the team about an hour to replace both and the new oxygen plant was back in service in four hours.
