lime storage and handling system - Spirotech-SRD

Following on from Spirotech-SRD Group’s successful service contract with South West Water to maintain its silo lime installations on over thirty sites, Spirotech was successful in winning a contract through one of its main tier contractors to manufacture, supply and install a lime storage and handling system – including storage silo, lime conveyor, volumetric feeder, lime screw mixer assembly and centreless sludge conveyors at Ernesettle Sewage Treatment Works near Plymouth.

Lime storage and handling system – designed and manufactured in-house

The design was undertaken using Spirotech’s state of the art 3D design software and manufactured totally in-house at the Sawtry factory. The design satisfies the needs of the customer’s stringent WIMES specifications required within the water industry.

The full lime storage and handling system was installed by the fully qualified installation team at Spirotech-SRD Group Ltd and included the provision of detailed method statements, lift plans and the lifting control required within BS7121. Spirotech’s in-house technical installation team prepared all the relevant documentation ensuring that the installation is carried out in a controlled and effective manner with the minimal disruption to the day to day running of the plant.

On schedule, on time and on budget

The installation of the lime storage and handling system was conducted over a three-day craning period, reducing the site disruption to a minimum, within a heavily constricted site construction area. Spirotech-SRD Group Ltd completed the mechanical installation on schedule, on time and critically on budget. The plant will shortly be commissioned and brought into service and the old silo system removed from site.
