Quality tank construction
AWC constructs its tanks out of highly corrosion-resistant marine-grade, 5086 aluminum alloy. This construction eliminates the need for corrosion-protection coatings and prevents premature failures, which can occur with poor surface preparation or coating failures. Sacrificial anodes are used to further increase protection against corrosion. All fasteners in contact with the aluminum are 316 stainless steel to minimize galvanic corrosion. Stainless steel tanks are also available upon request. Our process equipment components can also be supplied for installation into site-constructed concrete tanks or retrofitted into existing tankage. In these circumstances, AWC can provide tank dimensions and other civil criteria.
Electrical systems and control panels
AWC designs, builds, programs and commissions fully integrated automated control and electrical systems. Our systems feature:
- Integrated UL and CSA approved MCC’s and control panels
- Fully automatic operation with advanced instruments and controls; provides automatic backwash initiation and sequencing
- Remote monitoring, control and SCADA options
- Industrial quality PLC’s with simple plug-in, pre-programmed modules for reduced training and technical support
We offer a full range of chemical mixing and dosing systems, including solution tanks, mixers, dosing pumps and safety equipment.
Advantages of AWC ST Plants
Our plants are fabricated with marine-grade aluminum alloys that provide superior resistance to chemicals and corrosion, resulting in longer life.
Our ST plants are pre-assembled and pre-tested in our controlled facility, often saving 50 percent or more over in-situ construction. They can also be integrated into pre-engineered building systems for increased savings and reduced schedule.
Our ST plants are quiet, simple and easy-to-operate with minimal operator input. Inlet flow is set at a constant rate for uncomplicated system operation. In addition, the plants are supplied complete with chemical dosing, water quality instrumentation, automatic controls and monitoring systems customized to meet local needs. With minimal installation and connection requirements, projects run smoother and start up faster with fewer mix-ups.
