Case – Little space for entering between the tank and ceiling
A customer came to us with the following problem. They have a number of tanks, these tanks comprise at the top a manhole. Sometimes the tanks will be entered among other things for maintenance and cleaning. In addition, it should also be possible to save the person who is in the tank in case of an emergency. In itself, this is not an exceptional situation, however, is in this case the space between the top of the tank (containing the manhole) and above the ceiling is very limited. In practice, it was therefore not possible to enter the tank in a safe manner. It was not possible to rescue someone from the tank should that be necessary.
Our engineers have practically approached the problem and the solution sought in a mobile rack that can be placed next to different tanks. This rack is equipped with a Persons Winch (MRW) and STAR Series Fall arrest block with rescue function. This configuration allows the colleagues – responsible for employees who enter the manhole – to descend them in a controlled manner and moreover, to save them in case of an emergency. The stand is also equipped with a customized version of the Rescue Slide. The Rescue Slide allows still in an ergonomic way between manhole and ceiling despite the tight space to enter the tank.
