Bespoke Acid Storage & Dispensing Units

Corvault – Pallet / IBC Stores

The clients requirements

For this bespoke unit we showed the customer pictures of previous units we had done in the past and they liked the idea of the rolling floor concept.  They had a requirement for segregated bunds, insulation and heating because these chemicals have got to be kept between 5°C and 25°C.  They also had a requirement for chemical dosing pumps and equipment plus re-modelling of a lot of their existing pipework to improve safety and a full chemical safety audit and training was also necessary.  The main emphasis in the situation was safety.

The customer also needed safety signage and plastic bunding.
