The customer had identified that both stainless steel tanks were losing water. This meant that part of the treatment process was interrupted.
K&G was contracted to investigate the fault to establish the exact cause, write a report, submit a quote for expected works and finally complete repairs and bringing the facility back online.
As this was a confined space entry, we had to provide three confined space engineers along with all confined space entry equipment.
The tanks were pressure tested and leaks and weaknesses in the tanks were highlighted. Once identified, K&G removed the damaged stainless steel and fabricated new panels in our workshop. These were then installed and welded within the tanks. Again the tank was pressure tested and found to be sound.
We then worked closely with our partners at a crane company and commenced the lifting of the membranes back into the tanks. We were then able to refill with water and the job was complete.
The customer was then able to begin identifying any problems with other aspects of the functions of the tanks.
Having used K&G on a number of projects from planned work to reactive work, they are fast becoming an essential tool in my toolbox. Their team are responsive, professional and skilled and I wouldn’t hesitate in recommending them to anyone.
