Over the years, A-Tech has been contracted to perform various projects. Initially, A-Tech was contracted to provide a solution to the steel mill for modifying throttle cylinders to handle the harsh environment. At first, the cylinders were failing about every 7 days. After evaluating the system and the symptoms, the seal design and composition was changed. These changes resulted in the same cylinders lasting up to a year before requiring replacement. This saved the company over $70,000 for the first year.
