WHAT WE DO
V-FRAME in the Agribusiness industry
In the agricultural sector we often come across bulk storage of cattle feed, chemical fertilizer and wet by-products silo’s. These silo’s also require inspection or repairs from time to time. Even for smaller tanks (< 9 meters in diameter) we have a solution to give access to inspect or make repairs.
The V-frame can be used in silos and tanks with a diameter of 9 up to 20 meters. It can be adjusted to the specific required diameter so it will fit perfectly. The better it fits, the easier it gets for the inspector, cleaner and/or welder to move around within the tank or silo to perform their work.
How does it work?
The V-frame will be transported to the location in parts (fits a medium sized van). These parts will be assembled near the tank and brought inside the tank using rigging from either an inspection door or hatch on the side, the bottom or the top. We require a minimum gap of 10 centimeters on top of the tank using fixed anchor points or our Vortex. When the V-frame is installed, we will guide the inspector or technical staff onto the V-frame. They can perform their work and we will keep a close eye on their safety. When the job is done, we will guide them safely back outside the tank.
