We are seeing a shift away from Carbon Steel Tanks to Stainless Steel. WHY? It’s all about WOL ‘Whole of Life’ cost, which delivers longer service life, lower maintenance requirements & less disruption to your business. Consider these cost implications for your business operations. What’s the life expectancy of your tank’s interior coating? What is the cost to re-coat your tank? Does your tank have insulation or cladding that will need to be removed for the re-coating to occur? How long will you need to shut down the operating area surrounding your tank during the re-coat? Review our case study for a comparison of the performance potential.

Furphy Engineering is the only Australian manufacturer to use laser welding techniques to manufacture Advanced Thermal Exchange (ATEX) dimple plate. Used as a heat transfer system within tanks, heating or cooling fluid flows through the cavity between plates, creating a temperature controlled interior surface for tanks, ducting or custom designed structures. This Case Study details the cost benefits and energy savings achieved with ATEX. More information: https://lnkd.in/bKcudgQ
