The Engineers at Drax power approached Philford Design to design a platform that would enable them access to north & South Dust Valves positioned in the roof space of a dust bunker.
Drax were experiencing problems gaining access to two dust valves poisoned in the roof space of a bunker which were approximately 4 metres from the floor.
Our Project Design Engineers were asked to survey the area and design a bespoke platform to enable access for maintenance. The platform also had a winch well to enable the safe operation of lowering & lifting of the dust valves.
Our scope of works comprised of: - design of the platform, manufacture and installation of the platform.
Our platform comprised of a bolted structural frame, which sat on a concrete floor, open mesh grid panels, handrail and self closing gates. This was just one of many of our projects that we have now successfully completed for Drax Power.
