Advanced oil tank corrosion protection for a major US oil company

Advanced oil tank corrosion protection for a major US oil company

Hempel A/S

A major US oil company was experiencing corrosion in its sour crude oil tanks. Chemicals and water in the oil were creating severe pitting and corrosion issues at the bottom of the storage tanks. They contacted Hempel looking for a long-term protective lining solution.A poor lining system can result in substantial losses. Tanks and vessels left out of service for repair, cost owners valuable time and lost revenues. Hempaline vinyl esters have been designed to resist against acids, caustics, strong solvents, oil and water, protecting assets and maintain the purity of the content of the tank.To combat corrosion in the customer’s sour crude oil tanks we recommended our Hempaline Defend 500 vinyl ester mat reinforced to line the tank bottom and also the bottom 4 feet of the wall surfaces.The high-performance scheme was applied following grit blasting and consisted of a single coat of Hempaline Prepare 120 primer. A first coat of Hempaline Defend 500 was then applied and whilst wet, a 450 gm/m2 (1.5 oz/ft2) chopped strand mat was incorporated into the coating. Following a light sanding to remove any upstanding fibres, a second coat of chemically resistant Hempaline Defend 500 was applied.

ABG blueroof - Green Extensive, Huddersfield University, UK

ABG blueroof - Green Extensive, Huddersfield University, UK

ABG

The design in this project was to have a Green Roof and warm roof system The aim was to place standard green roofs which retains water but allows most of the rainfall to run into buried SuDS tanks. Following consultation with ABG the design was changed to the ABG Blueroof system. The primary advantage of the system is that utilising the roof construction for water storage reduced the need for underground attenuation tanks. The simplicity of the design allowed for attenuation capacity and green roof installation at the same time saving the client time and money.

With LivePicture GO you can add a splash of vertical greenery in a playful way to your living, learning or working environment. You don’t even have to have “green fingers” for the care of the plants; the water detector indicates when the reservoir needs refilling. The water supply within the tank is sufficient to provide the plants with water for ± 4 weeks. The capillary action within the plant cassette provides the plants with just the right amount of water they need.
Gardens Sorted

Gardens Sorted

Lindab Ltd

Eco conscious barn conversion Landscape Design company Gardens Sorted specialise in renovation and bespoke garden installations. This project is a former farmyard and threshing barn conversion, the brief was to follow sustainable principles, the artifacts used around the garden are largely reclaimed, reused or recycled agricultural items.The client gardens by organic principles therefore the need for non-PVC galvanised rainwater goods was paramount. Chris Bligh, designer and installer at Gardens Sorted describes the installation: ”The rainwater solution required the high roof gutters to be deep profile, maintenance free, non-blocking outlets, and a long elegant downpipe into the storn water drain accross the yard. The addition of a rainwater diverter at the lower section afforded connection to a pressure water hose under grounded to two bends emptying into a reclaimed galvanised water tank. The hose is always full of water to the height of the tank. The important value of this is that the client can then dunk a large watering can into the deep water at waist height.” Chris adds that Lindab’s Rainline products are very good and he was grateful for a high standard of customer service.
StormCrate is a Runaway Solution at Coventry Housing Development

StormCrate is a Runaway Solution at Coventry Housing Development

Brett Martin Plumbing & Drainage

For this new housing development in Coventry, surface water management was a key consideration to prevent any future flooding and Brett Martin’s StormCrates were used to create an underground attenuation tank for the temporary storage of stormwater which would reduce the demand on the built drainage. The development of 15 new homes was built on an area susceptible to flooding during periods of bad weather. 180 StormCrates were used to create a 54.5m³ underground storage tank, constructed in three layers at a depth of 2m beneath the entrance road, to offset stormwater run-off from the developed area.

Condair has a gas at BAT Southampton

Condair has a gas at BAT Southampton

Condair Limited

Condair has supplied two gas-fired humidifiers capable of delivering up to 480kg of steam per hour to British American Tobacco’s R&D facility in Southampton. Seeking an energy efficient alternative to their existing 10 year old live steam humidification system, the Condair GS gas-fired humidifier proved the perfect replacement as it provides high capacity steam generation with low operating costs, offering 65% cheaper steam than electric humidifiers.Two Condair GS humidifiers were installed, each capable of delivering up to 240kg of steam per hour to two AHUs feeding a test area which needed to be kept at a constant 22°C with 60%RH ±5%. Steve Hemsley, Head of Commercial at British American Tobacco, commented, “To date the humidifiers have enabled us to maintain the desired conditions in our close conditioned environments.”Condair GS gas-fired steam humidifiers have a high quality, compact construction with state-of-the-art safety features, a user-friendly design and a variety of flexible options which makes them simple to install and straightforward to service and maintain.The humidifier incorporates a 360° flame encircling the burner. This maximises the thermal transfer to the heat exchanger resulting in a thermal efficiency of over 90%. The Condair GS therefore reacts very quickly to a requirement for humidification whilst minimising gas consumption and emissions. Steam output can also be consistently controlled from outputs as low as 10kg/hr.The stainless steel heat exchanger has large flat surfaces that dislodge scale during normal operation. This scale falls to the bottom of the water tank. The large flat surfaces of the heat exchanger make it easy to remove what little scale is left behind. Also, as the heat exchanger remains mostly scale-free, the efficiency of heat transfer to the water is maximised. To further reduce scale build-up in the boiling chamber, a low volume of fresh water is continually added and high mineral content water removed. This not only decreases scale build-up but improves humidity control when compared to other gas-fired humidifiers that occasionally stop steam production and run a complete tank drain to combat scale.Alongside the humidifiers Optisorp short evaporation steam lances were also supplied to distribute the steam inside the ducts. Made from stainless steel, giving a long service life, the OptiSorp steam distribution manifold offers evaporation distances up to four times shorter than standard steam pipes. Multiple distribution pipes provide steam across the entire duct at a very even concentration. The pipe’s outlets have tiny tubes that take the steam from the centre of the pipe where it is at its hottest and driest, assisting rapid absorption.
Condair humidifiers at the National Army Museum

Condair humidifiers at the National Army Museum

Condair Limited

Condair has recently supplied and installed three Condair RS resistive steam humidifiers to maintain the humidity around the exhibits and archives at the National Army Museum in Chelsea, London.Optimum environmental conditions are required to ensure the perfect preservation of military artefacts that are made of a wide range of materials, some of which date back to the English Civil War.Mike O’Connor, Deputy Director at the National Army Museum, commented, “Precise climate control in our galleries and stored collections, across both temperature and humidity, plays an important role in preserving the nation’s military heritage. Our collections include an array of exhibits, from the cloak Wellington wore at Waterloo and Lawrence of Arabia’s dagger to modern day grenade launchers and drones. Metals, textiles, wooden objects and paintings can all be affected by high or low humidity, so a stable environment ensures longevity and avoids costly restoration work.”The three Condair humidification systems were installed in weatherproof enclosures on the roof of the museum as part of its recent £24M refurbishment project. As well as resisting the London weather, the Condair enclosures incorporate a heater and fan unit to ensure the internal conditions remain within the humidifier’s recommended operating range. So, just as the humidifiers help the museum preserve its exhibits, likewise the enclosures do the same job for the humidifiers.The Condair RS resistive steam humidifier is the ideal choice for heritage applications due to its responsive control and innovative scale management system. It can operate on mains water, as it is at the National Army Museum, and provide ±3%RH control, or on RO water and offer a close ±1%RH control. A humidifier that gives rapid response and close humidity control is important for museums that can be empty one minute and full of tourists in from the rain the next.A patented scale management system on the Condair RS allows in-house maintenance teams to undertake routine scale removal, safely and quickly, without even needing to open the humidifier’s main cabinet. A scale collector tank is located under the boiling chamber, into which scale falls during operation. Scale removal is a simple process of draining the unit with the push of a button, disconnecting the cooled collector tank and emptying it.The National Army Museum is the leading authority on the British Army and its impact on society past and present. It displays thousands of pieces across five themed galleries with a special temporary exhibition gallery, event space, a café and children’s area, Play Base. Admission is free to the permanent galleries and the Museum is open to the public between 10am and 5.30pm, daily.

Creamery production facility uses FasTop

Sherwin-Williams

Wensleydale Cheese has been made in Wensleydale, Yorkshire since 1150 when monks settles and lived at monestary at Forsnear Hawes. Today cheese is till handcrafted with the original recipe at the two Wensleydale Creamery sites using milk from local cows.Wensleydale Creamery required floor finishes throughout production floors which would be hygienic and very durable to provide a long term solution. Excellent chemical resistance was required against regular spillages from dairy produce such as whey.Dairy production procedures mean that floors are subjected to heavy duty use and impact from fork lift trucks and storage equipment.SystemThe system chose was FasTop TG69 polyurethane floor screed which has been applied throughout the two creamery sites. The system provides a completely seamless finish which is ant-slip even in wet conditions and which can be cleaned to the exacting conditions required in a modern food factory.Coved skirting has been formed around perimeters of all production and storage areas to create a 'tanked' finish which can be cleaned with hot water processes such as steam cleaning. The product has been tested and certified by Campden BRI as a non-taint product and is certified by HACCP as a food grade material.

Commercial to Residential Basement Conversion

Commercial to Residential Basement Conversion

Delta Membrane Systems Ltd

Commercial to residential, it may be last orders for some of our great British pubs, for other’s its discovering exciting ways of transforming commercial structures into luxury residential dwellings.  The growing trend of converting old inns offers new homes a unique history whilst being packed with character and features.Delta Registered Installers, Advance Property Preservation Ltd were engaged to assist on a troublesome vaulted basement to a property, based in central London which had already been converted into high living accommodation.Just off the basement area were two large vaults around 12m long. Made from brick barrel construction, this below ground space had previously used for storing kegs of ale!One of these vaults had previously been converted into a spa area with jacuzzi and steam room, the other was used as a storage area. The owners had previously had the storeroom tanked with a Type A, render system, however this approach repeatedly failed, allowing for substantial water ingress which was causing damage to items stored in this area.With Structural Waterproofing one of the major contributors to project failure lies with the design. When hiring contractors, ensure the design, procurement of materials and installation is undertaken by one specialist will naturally reduce these known and associated risks. A specialist contractor will always be able to offer quality assurances.

Condair Humidifies Polestar Sheffield

Condair Humidifies Polestar Sheffield

Condair Limited

A Condair ML Solo high pressure humidification system has been installed in the litho platemaking area at Polestar print company’s award-winning plant in Sheffield. Designed to suppress and disperse electrostatic charges when protective film is removed from the plates, Condair’s low-energy humidifier maintains a relative humidity of 45% in the area. The project was carried out by Cambridgeshire-based HVAC and process engineering specialist, Arcade.Polestar Sheffield produces 2.5 million high-quality catalogues, magazines, brochures and newspaper supplements every day. Part of Polestar Group, the company produces many well-known titles including Cosmopolitan, Radio Times, Woman’s Own, Country Life and many Sunday newspaper supplements.With a strong focus on printing excellence and productivity at Polestar, the new humidifier installation provides an effective solution to the problem of electrostatic charge generation when protective paper is removed from the litho plates. By reducing and dissipating the electrostatic charge, the paper and plates are easier to handle, it prevents the attraction of dust and reduces the risk of spark generation. The Condair ML humidifier delivers ultrafine sprays directly into the air, which rapidly evaporate to maintain a relative humidity of 45%RH, the level required to counter the effects of static electricity.Joss Williams, Arcade’s Senior Project Manager, said, “The humidifier meets Polestar’s requirements and the customer is happy. Previous experience of Condair as JS Humidifiers has been good”. When it came to this installation, the versatility of the system and working knowledge of the installation team proved important. Joss Williams continues, “The guys that attended site changed the design to suit the site location with no issues in relation to price. The installation was of a high standard and looks good”.The Condair ML Solo is a low energy, cold water spray humidifier, requiring just 5% of the energy used by equivalent steam humidifiers. This fits well with Polestar’s strong environmental credentials, which seek to minimise its impact on the environment through initiatives such as recycling and wastewater management.Ten spray heads are located in the platemaking area, with a capacity to deliver up to 48 litres of pure, demineralised water into the air each hour. Effective moisture distribution is ensured from the twin jets on each ML Solo unit by a low energy, low noise fan. Operating in complete safety at 70bar, the jets are fed with mineral-free water produced centrally by a Condair MLPRO100 pump and reverse osmosis treatment station. The system features a stainless steel, oil-free, high-pressure pump, RO water purification and UV water sterilisation, so low maintenance and pure, hygienic sprays are guaranteed. Pipework is in stainless steel and high grade corrosion-free flexible hoses.Arcade’s work at Polestar Sheffield has included the installation of two chillers, inverter-controlled chilled water pumps, pumping stations, tanks and over 3km of stainless steel pipework, with Condair undertaking the installation of the humidification system on behalf of Arcade.Condair’s ML Solo humidifier is widely used in the printing industry around the world, particularly in paper storage, press halls and print finishing. An environment of 45-55%RH effectively deals with problems caused by dry air such as tight edges, paper curl, misfeed and web breaks, and effectively disperses ‘static and dust. In an industry where temperatures can get high, the cold water humidifier also offers the benefit of free cooling - up to 33kW from a system like the one at Polestar. It is also widely used for humidification and evaporative cooling in many other industrial applications such as woodworking and textiles, commercially in horticulture, in applications such as supermarkets to maintain the quality of fresh vegetables, and in offices.The spray head operation is virtually silent, introduces no dust to the atmosphere, is hygienic and requires only infrequent and straightforward maintenance. With a choice of colours, jet configuration and outputs, with adjustable brackets for directional orientation, they can be ceiling- or wall-mounted and suit many situations.

Canada Water Library, London

Canada Water Library, London

Technal

Spearheading an ambitious programme of regeneration, Canada Water Library resembles an inverted ‘ziggurat’ – a terraced pyramid of successively receding storeys – that partly overhangs the Canada Water basin.The £1.4m building sits at the edge of a civic plaza and a stretch of open water. The expanding pyramid form integrates a compact footprint at ground level with progressively wider floors above. The building is clad in light bronze anodised aluminium panels with sequined perforations, interspersed with recessed curtain wall screens. This design gives the project a sculptural appeal and a striking visual effect.Finished in bronze anodised aluminium, the structural sealant glazed facade and commercial doors were specified for the ground floor. A Visible Grid Facade has being used for the strips of curtain walling to the three upper floors, with top hung concealed vents and aluminiumdoors providing access to the balconies.The library forms part of the vibrant quayside at Canada Water - a historic Docklands that was once a bustling port. It was designed to exemplify the importance of the library, education and community facilities for local people and focus on the new phase of regeneration.

Yorkshire Water Security Shutters

Yorkshire Water Security Shutters

Hart Door Systems Ltd

Hart Door Systems has worked with a number of UK water companies to improve site security and efficiency. In particular the need to secure remote and often unstaffed but vitally important sites. Water sites have particular needs which require reliable and secure doors and the engineering expertise that Hart offer.The challenge This Yorkshire Water had 3 existing un-secure horizontal doors. These manual operation doors had fallen into disrepair and presented a security risk. Automatic doors were required to provide efficiency and security. The solution The Hart solution was to install its roller shutters, fitted in a customised way to suit the environment and to ensure security, ease of installation and minimum disruption. One of the things Hart has significant experience in is fitting doors that add security features but without the need for additional structural works. Disruption was further minimised by working in collaboration with the main construction contractor, scheduling the work to fit in with not only the day to day operations, but other work happening concurrently.Because of Hart’s experience on sites such, existing vital operations were worked around – which continued during the removal of the old doors and installation of the new. The success Several more SR rated doors are planned at the same site, so that the company can replicate the success and the improved security that has been provided.Hart has gained invaluable experience working with various water companies installing high specification SR rated security shutters. These doors meet an established set of standards to prevent unauthorised access and have been tested and shown to minimise the threat of certain intruder attacks.For those sites that need constant access by people and / or traffic, the Speedor brand of doors can provide additional high speed operation. Speedor and SR doors can be used in combination to give complete flexibility and the best of both worlds.

KWC DVS Limited

Winchmore School has completed a washroom refit specifying Franke’s Uridan waterless urinal pods. The Uridan system is available exclusively through Franke Sissons in the UK and Ireland and is manufactured from glass reinforced plastic which is far more resilient than ceramic and provides reassuring security against vandalism. Adrian Bailey, Facilities Manager at Winchmore School explained, “We wanted a waterless solution to reduce water use and maintenance costs. There are other water-free products available for this type of installation but we wanted assurance it would stand the wear and tear of secondary school pupils and be completely odour free.”
