A mobile service offers a number of advantages where ready-filled filters are delivered to site with pre-fitted connectors, valves and pipework to allow them to be plumbed straight into the waste stream undergoing filtration treatment. When the filters are spent they can be exchanged using a dedicated vehicle that can deliver a replacement filter at the same time. The challenge presented to ThermTech was to design and manufacture a filter container that could be transported in the horizontal position and raised into the vertical operating position on site.
ThermTech started the challenge by carrying out a detailed inspection of the transport vehicle and recording all the necessary measurements. This enabled the design of the new filter vessel to be created with a perfect match between the hydraulic loading arms and the heavy-duty location lugs on the vessel. This aspect of the design was essential to providing safe loading and unloading process that would provide many years of reliable service. Mobile process silos must be designed in such a way that improves both efficiency and safety.
