Water Utility Company

Project objective

To create a controlled flow of treated water around the service tank

Project description

Once the old baffle curtains had been removed and repairs made to the existing stainless 316L baffle plate, installation of the new baffle curtains could begin. The new prefabricated 1.5mm Flagon GeoP/AT baffle curtains are shipped to site and placed inside the tank to the exact positioning of the old curtains. To place these in the tank, the baffle curtains are hoisted up from the floor into a vertical position and then each curtain is fixed to an eyebolt from the soffit by a baffle strap which are used for tensioning.

The baffle curtains are fixed to the floor slab using a 316L stainless bar and fixings which provides a positive seal and reduces short circuiting. The curtain panels are individually pulled up and welded onto the newly installed curtain using hot air welding techniques.
