Area of the surface in contact with the water on the inner surface is minimized by using NPU’s at the external zone instead of tension bars used in the inner part of the tank during manufacture of the classical tank. So, tank life will be extended.
The circle used outside the buffer tank increases the durability of the tank and balances its position thanks to the NPU supports. A high level of strength is provided via use of sheet metal at appropriate thickness (from 4 mm to 8 mm).
The quality of the sheet metal used is ST37, the international standard. Special oil sand is used fthe bottom of the buffer tanks manufactured, and the tanks produced in line with the layout and design information provided by the Timfog engin ers serveat greenhouses smoothly fmany years.
Oil sand, obtained by adding a certain amount of industrial oil to the amount of sand used, fills in the gaps between sand grains, and avoids occurrence of foreign particles such as humidity, corrosive acids in that area and also prevents corrosion of the plates under the bottom surface of the buffer tank.
An average of minimum 20 cm fireproof rock wool insulation material is used depending on the climate conditions.
The air above the water level within the tank must be deoxidized constantly fnot leading to oxidationcorrosion. Therefore, a nitrification system at high quality standards is used.
All the tanks suffer from highly quick expansion and vacuum pressure while filling and discharging water. Thus, it’s extremely important to check sudden pressure changes withing the tank. Especially, the deformation and collapse of the tank resulting from the potential pressure changes in the tank might lead to extensive damages and loss.
One of the limited number of simulated buffer tank manufacturers in the world, Timfog Engineering makes production at international quality. All sheet metal and construction designs ftank manufacturing are made by TIMFOG engineers. During design process, Water pressure and other tests are performed in a computer environment before manufacturing.
All project details and all assembly details required during installation are shared with the customer.
TIMFOG buffer tanks are manufactured with high hardware components. (Manholedischarge valves-inner stair-outer stair -filling system -roof railing).
All the tanks produced by the Timfog engineering (rm are simulated by 3D modelling by engineers before production is started. Thanks to this simulation modelling programs,we observe all hydrostatic and hydrodynamic reactions before the tank is manufactured and started to be used. Thus, all technical problems that may occur during tank manufacturing and all the problems that may be dangerous are predetermined. Also, it simplifies the construction process and ensures the establishment of a more efficient physical and operational system.
