Hydraulic Lift Tightness Test-
As a condition of the recent sale of an automobile dealership, verification of the tightness of the service department hydraulic lifts was required. The buyer wanted assurance that the lifts were not leaking in to the soil below the floor slab.
Futuretech Design devised a method of determining the existing condition of the lifts. A 12-hour test was performed to determine their leak rate. The picture above shows the lifts during the test.
The test showed that several of the lifts were in need of repair. Corrective action was taken and the sale was completed with no further delay.
Ground Water Remediation Equipment-
The rebuilding of service stations is a common site
around the U.S. The scene usually includes large
underground fuel tanks sitting on the site ready to be
installed in to huge holes in the ground. This renovation
work is typically the result of state or federal
environmental regulations. And it purpose is to replace
leaking underground tanks.
Although the old tanks can be readily replaced with
ones much less likely to leak, an un-contained amount of
gasoline or diesel is sometimes left behind. In cases
where leaks have continued for a long time before being
detected, the surrounding geological formations can be
saturated with the residue.
Futuretech Design has developed a class of recovery
and treatment systems to remove the fuel deposits and
dispose of them in a prudent manner. These modular
systems use a variable vacuum source to gather the un-contained fuel and saturated ground
water for treatment.
Pure fuel and oil is separated from the water by
decanting. The fuel is then drawn off into drums for safe
disposal. The water is treated by air stripping to remove
the dissolved hydrocarbons. These ground water
remediation systems include a carefully arranged recycle
condensing spray to reduce the system's air emissions.
A dedicated control computer reports the system's status
to the operators at a central location.
