There are many tanker access situations that require the operator to have free access to the entire tanker top. This can mean walking along the top of a round barrel or ISO container with varying designs of walkway and manhole positions and associated trip and fall hazards.
The Tanker Enclosure System has its own integral walkway built into the structure, giving it greater rigidity and enhanced safety. It is integrated with a folding stair unit which can be manually or pneumatically operated.
The enclosure is available up to 12 metres long with aluminium construction. The system can be designed to be used for inspection purposes or with a number of loading arms. The System is supplied with flip up floor panels so that access to all areas of the tanker is independent of tanker walkways.
The System is powered by twin pneumatic cylinders to give a smooth and simple up/down movement over 1.5m. Essentially, it offers the same levels of security and assurance as the Multi-Modal, but without the ability to tilt at each end.
The system is automatically supplied in accordance with ATEX and is operated by a single, simple deadman switch from the platform level. Like the Multi-Modal it can be fitted with switches to detect the tanker and stop the downward movement.
Similarly it can be supplied with a parking switch that the client can use to connect to a traffic management system.
