Two Room Chemical Feed Building With Containment Basin FloorCase Study
The control room houses the main PLC (Programmable Logic Controller) panel that drives the operation of the chemical feed systems, the 480V and 120V power distribution panels for the feed, and the building's automation systems. Instead of a containment basin floor, the control room has a 1/8” diamond plate floor powder coated in a neutral gray color. This room has a one-ton air conditioning unit to prevent the electrical components inside the panels from overheating during the summer months.
The shelter was manufactured wood reinforcement in the walls for hanging heavy equipment and 2” foam in the roof and walls for an R-Value of 15. Each room contains emergency exit lighting, while the exterior has security lighting above the doors. The entire building is mounted on a steel base skid with lifting eyes for moving the enclosure. The base skid allows the client to place the building on an existing concrete pad with minimal civil changes to their existing infrastructure.
The Shelter Works Experience
This chemical feed building with separate control and pump rooms is another example of how Shelter Works can provide multiple solutions within a single enclosure. Wagner said that collaborating with Shelter Works "truly felt like a partnership. Working with the custom nature of our equipment, Shelter Works teamed with us seamlessly to make the necessary changes and revisions during the submittal process to help keep the project on track." The result is a fully customized product to meet the end user’s needs.
