Subject: [DCHAS-L] Protecting Vacuum Lines during renovations

We have a building wide lab renovation project starting up that involves ventilation upgrades and installation of sprinkler systems. A number of these labs have glass vacuum line systems that are 6-12ft long, some containing various mercury containing
components. Due to the size and intricacy of the systems, there is a significant hazard involved with dismantling them and the labs would like to leave them in place and have them protected in some fashion.
Does anyone have any recommendations to have them crated in place or whom would be the best type of company to reach out to? I wouldn't trust a standard crating company with this project and we are currently reaching out to the local scientific gas blower
that made the systems for his suggestions.
Thoughts would be appreciated.
