Niplast has identified a real need in the market for the in-situ completion of chemical storage tanks, where the delivery of factory completed storage tanks is not possible, but the same design and quality of factory finished tanks is required.
The manufacturing processes employed by Niplast mean that factory completed and tested tank subassemblies can be transported to a customer’s site before being welded to other such subassemblies. In this state these component pieces are themselves quite flexible and they can therefore be moved carefully through narrow spaces and into the nominated location for the forthcoming SITEBILT® tank.
The nominated area is in essence turned into a controlled and clean fabrication area for the duration of the site build process. The subassemblies are tested before leaving the Niplast factory and again upon arrival at site. Two of the main welding processes within the design code BS EN 12573 are fully transferable from factory to site, as are the in-process non-destructive testing regimes.
Niplast is then able to provide the customer with a design code compliant, fully-tested and certified chemical storage tank that could not have been installed if factory manufactured.
Examples include the replacement of hydrofluoric acid Niplast ® storage tanks 20 years old in small water treatment plants where the roof was completed following the tanks’ original installation. All components for these replacement tanks passed through a standard 2m high personnel door.
A 60,000 litre capacity polypropylene SITEBILT® tank was constructed by Niplast ® technicians for a leading UK detergents manufacturer which also incorporated a highly intricate fully draining internal conical base, pictured here.
Please watch the short animation here which demonstrates the SITEBILT ® methodology.
