Mon 4-4-2016. Kerchoff Steam Tunnel. Day 2 with 2 men. Remove 2 decommissioned steam lines 550 linear feet.
500 feet have asbestos insulation wrapped in tar paper and tie wire, now candy-caned with plastic.
Estimated 80 individual glovebags to create gaps of insulation so pipe can be cut into 6-foot sections to fit
the cargo van, to make the turn from tunnel to manhole, and not be too heavy to handle. Today 20 glovebags were
installed in 6 hours. So say, total 6 man-days to hang the bags, 6 man-days to remove, and 3+ man-days
to cut and remove the sections. With 3-man crew dedicated to this job, estimated 5 more days to complete.
Physics crawl space. Remove section of non-asbestos pipe insulation.
