At Kenway, we are proud to have completed our first installation of FRPI-certified tanks!
As a member of the Fiber Reinforced Plastics Institute, Kenway manufactured these tanks utilizing the organization’s strict FRPI guidelines. The rigorous four-step process ensures that customers receive the exact project they sign for and for which they have paid.
The 9’ tall x 7′ tanks store 15% sodium hypochlorite for use in the wastewater treatment process at the North Hudson Sewerage Authority in West New York, New Jersey. Kenway’s in-house engineering group designed the tanks to solve a unique challenge: the tanks located inside of retaining walls where buoyant forces would try to lift the empty tanks off their anchor lugs. Our solution was a balsa-cored bottom on the tanks that securely resists any buoyant forces.
This challenge gave everyone at Kenway a great opportunity to flex their mental muscles. We would appreciate the opportunity to work on more projects similar to this one, so please let us know if you have your own engineering challenge.
