One of our long term clients contacted us to investigate a problem with a leaking bulk holding tank in their raw materials holding area.
We inspected the tank onsite and found the hot water jacket had failed and imploded the bottom section of the vessel. As all the tanks in the tank farm were originally positioned and then the area was enclosed made it made it impossible to repair the tank in position. We completed a cost comparison to either remove and repair the existing tank verses manufacturing and installing a replacement tank. The decision was made to replace the damaged tank, the new tank needed to be designed to fit exactly into the same position which had minimal clearance between the other tanks and equipment around it and all the connections for services were already in place.
We designed, manufactured and delivered the replacement tank which fitted perfectly into the required position and is now ready to go into production.
