Circular tank covers

circular tank covers - Covertechnology.com

Cover Technology has been working in the environmental and industrial sector for years and has developed a series of permanent and movable EFFLUENT TREATMENT PLANT COVERS (some patented). These covers are suitable for both circular and rectangular treatment plants. The EFFLUENT TREATMENT PLANT COVER construction consists of an aluminium and steel frame covered with technical PVC fabric or sandwich panels. The choice of materials allows shipping low weights and compact volumes, rapid assembly and impressive resistance to weather loads. The key feature of the EFFLUENT TREATMENT PLANT COVER is its excellent resistance to corrosion and the capability for adapting the structure to existing systems with no need for construction works, saving both time and money.

Width Minimum 10.00 metres / Maximum 50.00 metres
Length Standard modules 05.00 metres / total length infinite
Side height Minimum 02.50 metres / Maximum 09.00 metres
Wind resistance Minimum 25 m/sec / Maximum 41 m/sec
Snow resistance Minimum 60 daN/m² / Maximum 400 daN/m²
Cover fire resistance class Self-extinguishing – Flame Retardant Class 2
Operating temperature -30 °C  /  +70 °C

The EFFLUENT TREATMENT PLANT COVER structure is of modular design, allowing:

  • DIFFERENT CONFIGURATIONS (movable covers for circular treatment plants, fixed covers for circular treatment plants, movable covers for treatment plants, foundation-less covers for treatment plants and odour barrier covers).
  • INSTALLATION ON DIFFERENT SURFACES (asphalt, concrete, dirt, or sand) thanks to a special anchor system (with threaded bars, plates and nails or spiral bars)
  • DESIGN WITH A SPECIFIC SNOW BEARING CAPACITY, ranging from 60 kg/sq. m for the basic structure up to 400 kg/sq. m for areas with very high snowfall
  • CE MARKING of the structural components in compliance with the EN 1090-1:2009+A1:2011 standard thanks to Cover Technology’s accreditation.

It is also important to note that structures are designed and constructed in compliance with the Italian Ministerial Decree dated 14.01.2008 (known as the Technical Construction Standards or NTC2008 with return time Tr 50 years) and in compliance with the Eurocodes.

The supporting frame consists of extruded aluminium alloy profiles, creating a lightweight structure that withstands all weather conditions. Roofs and side walls are in flame-retardant, waterproof, very tough, PVC fabric. Naturally, there is a very wide selection of materials to suit the different uses and locations of structures. The main materials used in construction of the EFFLUENT TREATMENT PLANT COVER structure are:

Main structure components Aluminium alloy profiles
Base plate elements Hot-dip galvanised steel
Cover Modular sheets of Class 2 Flame-Retardant PVC / Sandwich panels
Side walls, if required Modular sheets of Class 2 Flame-Retardant PVC / Sandwich panels
Doors or openings, if required Large vertical folding doors for aircraft / Vertical folding doors for vehicles / personnel doors
Metal cables Plastic-coated steel cable
Supporting surface Plinth not required
Anchor systems for concrete surfaces Threaded bars fixed with structural vinyl/epoxy resins
Anchor systems for firm ground and asphalt surfaces Steel nails driven into the ground
Anchor systems for loose ground Continuous spiral coils or rods

Apart from the STANDARD PVC sheeting, the cover may be in:

  • PVC fabrics with blackout treatment for sun protection
  • Thick PVC fabrics (strong cover)
  • Low-emission (silver-coated) or insulated PVC fabrics
  • PVC fabrics with special coating

Low cost, quick installation, elimination of maintenance, minimal construction and simplified building permits are just some of the benefits that even large-sized Cover Technology fabric buildings are able to offer. Cover Technology has installed a large number of CIRCULAR TANK COVERS, both for permanent and temporary (mobile buildings) applications. Fill-in the form to request more information
