WHAT WE DO
V-FRAME in the energy industry
In power plants, flue gasses are cleaned in various ways. Cleaning with the electrostatic filter generates filter dust. This dust is stored in a silo and processed further. This silo needs to be inspected on cracks and constructional damage. The V-frame is an easy tool to provide the inspector access to the inside of the silo in order to perform his work.
The V-frame can be used in silos 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 to move around within the silo to perform his 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 silo and brought inside the silo 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 silo using fixed anchor points or our Vortex. When the V-frame is installed, we will guide the inspector onto the V-frame. He can perform his work and we will keep a close eye on his safety. When the job is done, we will guide him safely back outside the silo.
