We had a customer who needed to enter a fermenting vessel for inspections and potential repairs from above. To be clearer, they didn't need to enter one vessel, they needed to enter each of their 165 vessels. The problem was, the tanks were within 3 feet of the ceiling and there was only smooth concrete above the hatches which the owner didn't want to drill into so simple anchor solutions were out.
This is not a unique story. We get requests like these all of the time. Often the solution is to modify the overhead structures to place anchors but isn't always feasible and, in some cases. individual permanent anchors that have to be inspected and certified become more expensive than can be absorbed.
Enter the Advanced Tank Pod System from Capital Safety to help us solve these issues.
When you have minimal overhead clearance, when you need to need a solution that lets you work on the top of a tank or if you need to protect the structure you are working in, this is the tool for the job. Not only that, if you don't have a stable platform that is large enough to accommodate a davit or tripod adjacent to the hatch entry, why not work directly on top of the tank instead?
In the case of our brew tank customer, they chose to connect a 50' SRL and a 100' winch to the tank pod which let them not only access the tank safely and under control but it also allowed them to have redundancy in the case of any issues with either fall protection system.
