Most work is done at ground level reducing risks of accidents. This is the safest and most preferred method for storage tank construction, discarding the need for a tall boom crane.
The jacking system dispenses with elaborate scaffolding requirements required to provide access for welding at heights, since now all welding is done at ground level.
Since welding is done at ground level and not at heights, better quality is ensured and risk of accidents is “LOW”
Work at ground level increases productivity thereby reducing the number of manpower required.
Welding inspectors can now conduct ultrasonic or other non-destructive tests on welds at ground level, facilitating ease of inspection and hence better quality control. No more climbing up to precarious positions for welding inspectors !
New shell plates are to be erected ground level instead of being hauled up to about 30 heights or more saving precious construction time for alignment of plates. All time required lifting of men and material to heights is eliminated. Construction work is practically unaffected by or snow, since most work is done under the of the tank itself.
- JACKING SYSTEM USED THE WORLD OVER
USA, Latin America, South America, Europe, CIS, Africa, Middle–East, Australia, Asia ….. Storage tanks have been erected in practically every part of the world using Hydraulic jacking system.
Along with this the top downwards tank erection considerably cuts construction time and cost. As m
ost work is done at the ground level permitting faster erection times along with reducing the risk of accidents. Requiring no crane, the process needs lesser manpower, saving money, time, and efforts.
