PROJECT PROFILE

LOCATION

Nashville, TN

COMPLETED

2018

PROBLEM STATEMENT

Cargill required coordinated delivery of fiber-reinforced polymer baffled tank with nozzles, agitator motor support, and maintenance access structure for introduction of highly concentrated acids into a wastewater treatment system.

TIMELINE

ADVANTIC SCOPE

Advantic engineered the agitator support and access structure to meet project and code requirements, generated PE-stamped design documents and calculations for local permitting authorities, fabricated the structure, and performed field installation support. Further, Advantic procured a filament wound FRP tank from a reputable supply chain vendor.

TECHNICAL APPROACH

Advantic structural engineers utilized fiber-reinforced polymer structural profiles to meet Code-prescribed strength and serviceability criteria for the support and access structure. Design included dynamic considerations for the agitator. Further, Advantic engineers specified, coordinated, and managed the quality plan for the FRP filament wound tank to ensure compliance with Cargill and ASME RTP-1 design standards.

ECONOMICS

By integrating design and supply of the coordinated tank and structure, Advantic eliminated the risk of scope gaps and coordination, and ensured quality delivery of an advanced materials solution for the corrosive environment.
