Raw Material Storage Tank Farm—Solvent Storage Facility
Design, Build, Install & Commissioning of a Hazardous Area Raw Material Storage and Transfer system for an Industrial Paints Manufacturing Company in Cheshire.
The existing Tank Farm had come to the end of its Safety Storage Life, the proposal was to design and build a new Solvent Storage Tank farm and demolish the existing facility.
A change-over strategy was completed to minimise the impact on production was developed to ensure the change over of each tank was completed in a safe and effective manor.
A New Bunded area was designed and installed adjacent to the existing facilities. The new Tank farm installed and the contents of each of the old tanks transferred into the new.
The Control system incorporated a Tanker Unloading HMI which allowed Raw Material to be fed into the relevant Storage Tank via a Pigging System. For Transfer to product a demand would be received to the control system, the outlet valve would open and the transfer pump started. This Tank Farm Installation was used by the HSE as a Case Study.
