Congratulations to Joe Rios, Carlos Hernandez and the rest of the Smokin’ Welders team who cleaned up big at a cookoff hosted by the Associated Builders and Contractors Texas Gulf Coast chapter.
We entered 3 teams in this year’s cookoff which collectively won the title of Grand Champion. The individual Red-D-Arc teams dominated the contest with the following results in the various categories:
Fajitas – 2nd, 3rd and 4th place
Chicken – 4th, 5th and 7th place
Brisket – 1st, 4th and 10th place
Ribs – 1st, 4th and 7th place
The annual cook-off was held to raise money for Veterans and The Back-Packs for kids program which sends food home with school kids that need food for the weekends. The contest also helps support the Dream Center which provides kids in need with shoes, clothes and school supplies.
We tried to get Carlos to share some of his recipes, but he was hesitant about giving up his winning secrets.
Great job guys. Thanks to everyone who helped the RDA Smokin’ Welders win big.
Industrial paint booths require periodic cleaning in order to maintain productivity and quality. On average, paint booth cleaning intervals range between 6 to 12 months. Typical cleaning methods involve hand scraping and wire brushing. Awkward angles and hard-to-clean areas like seams and bolt heads make this time consuming process very challenging.
To help our customers address this challenge Red-D-Arc has developed a Dry Ice Blasting Paint Booth Rental Package. This turnkey solution includes dry ice blasting machines, dry ice, high pressure air (if required), synthetic coatings (to limit future paint adhesion on booth interior) and on-site operating and safety training.
Red-D-Arc supplied three 125 kVA power generators and one 70 kVA power generator to the recent Stars and Thunder music festival. The generators were used for lighting and backstage power throughout the entire 8 day festival.
Stars and Thunder music festival took place in Timmins, Ontario June 24th-July 1st 2017 to celebrate Canada’s 150th birthday. The festival spotlighted Canadian groups such as Michel Pagliaro, David Wilcox, Sass Jordan, Tom Cochrane, April Wine, as well as some international acts like Keith Urban.
Red-D-Arc offers a full line of engine-driven, parallel ready generators including diesel generators, natural gas/LPG bi-fuel gaseous generators and diesel/natural gas dual fuel generators for rent, lease and sale. Learn more about Red-D-Arc power generators.

Red-D-Arc was featured in the December/January issue of Tank Storage Magazine in an editorial titled “Rental welding equipment for storage tank fabricators”. Tank Storage Magazine is an industry leading publication, reporting exclusively on the bulk liquid storage tank and terminal sector.
The storage tank construction industry is highly competitive and fabricators gain a significant advantage by leveraging Red-D-Arc’s rental fleet of automatic tank welding equipment. Red-D-Arc supplies specialized automatic storage tank welding equipment to companies in the tank fabrication industry for projects all over the world.
Along with our specialized tank welding equipment comes a highly knowledgeable and experienced team of Red-D-Arc technicians. Sayer Hendricks – storage tank welding equipment specialist at Red-D-Arc is quoted in the article: “A fabrication company without prior knowledge of the equipment, is able to rent a turn-key tank welding automation system and increase their welding productivity by 40-50%. With on-site training, service and support, our customers are up and running quickly and making 100% x-ray quality welds without fail”
