IFM assisted a local village with a complete re-bed of their Water Treatment Facility filtration train. The filtration train consists of three vessels, operating in order of GAC (granular active carbon), Clarifier, and Depth Filter. The work completed on each vessel included complete evacuation of the tanks, spent media disposed of per client request, full tank inspections including pictures and a full written summary, and finally re-bedding of each vessel with the correct layers of under-bedding and filtration media. IFM technicians worked diligently to fully place each vessel back on line to allow the WTP full operational capacity as quickly as possible. Base work was completed in four days, followed by TC collection, and plant was operational in six days.
Do to the location of the filter tanks within the WTP building, scaffolding was required to access each tank manway. IFM included this set-up and tear-down work as part of the complete project, along with the vacuum truck to evacuate each tank.
The complete project was orchestrated with a due-diligence to insure that the second train remained online to allow continued/ uninterrupted processed water to the village. For more information please see attached case study.
