Whether it is a floating cover for potable or raw water containment, Water-Lines can help design, specify, source and install.
With access to a patent modular float system utilising FPA we can deliver stand alone odour control covers, or an insulated system where a heat retention capability is required. Or, by overlaying this float system with a biogas collection system (and the necessary network of collector pipes) then topping this sandwich off with an upper membrane, the cover can function as an anaerobic digester.
- Good thermal insulation properties
- Simple low maintenance design
- Allows rain & snow melt to pass through system
- Resists wind uplift forces
- Good odour control
- Converts to bio-gas collector system
- Systems for potable water and effluents
The system comprises of a series of bespoke modules which are interconnected to form a large covered area. The modules can either be installed to an empty lagoon, or interconnected and "floated" into position on an existing filled lagoon.
The modules are manufactured from FPA, a Flexible Polypropylene Alloy which encapsulates a rigid insulation medium to create a buoyant connectable pontoon. The system incorporates a network of anchors that allow the cover to rise & fall with the lagoon levels whilst resisting wind uplift forces. The system gives good thermal retention properties and requires no electro-mechanical components.
An optional gas collector membrane can be installed should anaerobic digestion be considered which incorporates a network of gas collector pipes to harvest biogas production.
Benefits of the patent system are:
- Simple low-maintenance design
- Excellent performance characteristics
- Wind-lift resistance
- Precipitation drains through system
