APD has unique New Zealand so­lu­tions

DEMM Engineering & Manufacturing - - PLASTICS -

Lo­cally-owned Ad­vanced Plas­tics and De­sign (APD) is only one of two com­pa­nies in New Zealand with an ap­proved Code of Prac­tice to fab­ri­cate Chem­i­cal Stor­age Tanks to HSNO Stan­dards. APD can pro­vide HSNO com­pli­ant tanks up to 60,000L for a range of class 5, 6, 8 and 9 chem­i­cals. APD pro­vides so­lu­tions in plas­tics and strives for high qual­ity and cus­tomer ser­vice within the in­dus­try.

When a church in New Lynn (Auck­land) more than dou­bled the f loor space of its fa­cil­i­ties by plac­ing an­other build­ing on its land and con­nect­ing it with the ex­ist­ing build­ing, it was re­quired to in­stall 20,000 litres (20m3) of stormwa­ter detention ca­pac­ity due to the in­crease of non-per­me­able sur­face cov­er­age on the site. APD was se­lected as the tank sup­plier and APD Stor­mLite un­der­ground stormwa­ter tanks were spec­i­fied to sat­isfy the stormwa­ter detention re­quire­ment.

Two 10,000 litre (10m3) tanks, each weigh­ing 375 kg, were de­signed to be in­stalled as a con­nected pair to achieve the re­quired vol­ume due to site re­stric­tions. Tanks were de­liv­ered to site by HIAB crane truck and lifted into their fi­nal po­si­tion on site by a digger once the ex­ca­va­tion work was com­pleted.

An even more se­ri­ous so­lu­tion was needed as part of the up­grade at the Waikato Wa­ter Treat­ment Plant. Brian Perry Civil is re­plac­ing five of the bulk stor­age chem­i­cal tanks with HazSure Chem­i­cal Tanks, which have been de­signed in ac­cor­dance BS EN 12573 for fab­ri­cated tanks and APD’s ap­proved COP 4-2.

The tanks, which will store sodium bisul­fite, sul­phuric acid, cit­ric acid and sodium hy­drox­ide, range in size from 1,800L to 11,500L and all tanks have a side en­try man­way for ease of ac­cess, due to site re­stric­tions.
