Chemical Storage Facility Benefits from FRP

For decades, FRP tanks have been used as the material of choice for the containment of chemicals, whether that be storage in the form of tanks or transmission in the form of pipes, that are used in the water treatment and waste water treatment industries.

The ability to tailor a specific resin blend to suit different chemicals and the cost effective manufacturing process mean that it is hard to go past FRP as the most appropriate option. Why then would you design the infrastructure in these areas from materials that don’t have the same level of corrosion resistance.

The advances in manufacturing processes have now meant that “structural composites” are becoming more common place in highly corrosive environments.

“Non-Conductive” FRP Grating

Safety of employees and contractors is paramount for any company. High and low voltage electricity, if not respected, is one such risk that can have significant, if not fatal outcomes.

Traditional methods of construction and more so “materials of construction” have evolved over several decades so that now designers have a viable “substitute” to conductive flooring in switchrooms.

Hierarchy of hazard control is a system used in industry to minimize or eliminate exposure to hazards. It is a widely accepted system promoted by numerous safety organisations. This concept is taught to managers in industry, to be promoted as standard practice in the workplace. When considering the heirachy of hazard control, it would not be possible to eliminate the hazard however the second best method of hazard control is substitution.

Shearing Shed gets a FRP Minimesh Grating Upgrade

The client approached FRP Engineering to assist with the rebuilding of the shearing shed on the property. Shearing sheds are a long term investment and the farm owner was keen to rebuild this one to stand the test of time. He came to the experienced team at FRP Engineering with a plan to find the best possible walkway grating for the project.

The key requirements for the FRP Flooring were:

  1. Must be strong enough to take the load of sheep and shearers;
  2. Must be hardwearing so it lasts many seasons;
  3. Must be slip resistant;
  4. Must not corrode in the harsh environment;
  5. Must not ‘catch’ the hooves of the sheep but must allow for easy clean down.

The experts at FRP Engineering set to work finding a type of walkway mesh that would comply to all the client’s requirements.

Eventually the client settled on a Minimesh style grid mesh flooring with a larger mesh configuration for easy clean down. FRP Engineering was able to use its extensive network of suppliers to get this product fabricated to the exact dimensions to allow for easy installation with minimal cutting and wastage.
