Process enclosure container.

Process enclosure incorporating two lifting beams allowing heavy equipment to be handled for servicing, etc.. Exact positioning of various apertures for connections of the process equipment to external systems meant that a complex roof framework was required for the mounting of the beams in exactly the correct position for lifting. High ventilation through put with fans.

Containers for Ford stand at Motor Show.

Within the field of unusual requests we were asked to supply and were happy to oblige with 40ft containers to the Ford Motors stand of the 2004 Motor Show at the NEC (the Thunderbird theme). The units were subsequently also used for the Paris Motor Show. We worked with the customer to paint the units a suitable colour that was then specially lit on the stand.

Blast retardant containers.

Converted from standard 40ft steel shipping containers to protect workers on refinery sites during maintenance shutdowns, these units are designed to withstand a 5PSI chemical blast. Across the four units we converted in this project we installed over 1 kilometer of steel section! We also provided our customer with full technical records for steel, welding standards, etc.

Din type apertures.

This unit is destined for the Middle East and we provided laser cut plates for the customer to connect an internal water treatment system to other equipment and vessels. We can also have plates spot faced should applications require it. This unit also required a specialized paint system and so the unit was fully shot blasted to SA2.5 and painted with a customer specified paint system with full manufacturer inspection records for inclusion in a technical file that was supplied with the unit.

Sound attenuation container.

Due to noise restrictions on the site where this 20ft unit was to operate we fitted it out with sound attenuation paneling and louvres. In this case the forced ventilation fan was also silenced.

Secondary gaskets.

This unit was for a very cold operating environment and we not only lined the 20ft double-ended container with high performance insulation, but also built in secondary gaskets to refrigeration specification to assist with the overall insulation of the unit.

Control unit container.

This unit was to container electrical equipment cabinets, so we installed Unistrut in the floor and around the walls for secure fixing of the units, given that these also had to withstand the dynamic forces associated with transportation. We also supplied forced ventilation with plenum mounted fans in order that heat generated by the units could be expelled. We are also able to supply air conditioned or, in extreme cases, refrigerated units for equipment operating in very hot regions such as the Middle East and Africa.

A-frame container unit.

The customer wanted the versatility of a 20ft container and a hook-lift A-frame so we combined the two. This unit has a permanently welded A-frame chassis attached to it. If a customer needs to be able to separate the two we can supply an A-frame platform with twistlocks that a container would attach to in the same way as to a vehicle trailer.

Site Office Container.

A very common request is to convert containers to site offices, mess room, or storage cabins.

Armoured and normal personnel doors are commonly fitted into the sidewalls of the container. However, in the example below the customer decided to use the original doors for security and had an internal bulkhead fitted just behind them, with a wooden internal door.

You can have as many windows fitted as required to your container conversions and we supply security shutters that make the box more vandal/thief resistant.

We have stud lined the walls and roof, infilled with ISOWOOL insulation and over-laid this with plastic coated white-face plywood.

Electrics are an option but most requests include a minimum of some 13 amp sockets and strip lights.

Sound and vandal proof containers.

We were approached by a blue chip customer requiring a vandal-proof shell for mobile generators, which were also insulated for sound deadening to improve the attractiveness of their product in the mobile generator rental market.

We created 10ft unit conversions from standard containers, fitted custom design louvered vents for air in-let and out-let that also reduced noise emissions, insulated the box for sound proofing, installed a mounting structure for the generator unit to be held securely in place, and ducted the air-out and exhaust outlets direct to atmosphere, leaving a box that was extremely quiet and virtually anonymous as a generator unit.

Thefts of generators and fuel, and damage to the generators themselves have now stopped and more customers are specifying ‘armoured’ generators as a result!

Mill house Container.

A large project management company asked us to convert a 40ft container into an integrated mill house and control cabin to their design.

We constructed two 5ft doors to give an overall 10ft doorway to install the mill, put in a bulkhead to separate the control cabin from the mill room.

A large raw material silo was to be mounted over the top of the mill feeding raw material into the mill for processing (at 3,500rpm!). We built an integrated silo frame into the structure of the container, which also became the door posts on the one side. This approach enabled the load of the silo to be carried on the bottom rails of the container, which are the main load bearing structure of a container.

The silo sub-frame is designed and built to withstand the forces of 100 mph winds on the silo attached it.

20mm thick steel mounting plates were inserted flush into the floor and welded onto the floor cross members, onto which the mill was mounted.

With other various duct ports, we then completely sound insulated the main mill room in fire resistant materials that were built and fitted to withstand many years of vibration, without any deterioration.
