Water Treatment Equipment Enclosures for Power Plant Applications
A case study
A leading water treatment OEM (Original Equipment Manufacturer) tapped Falcon Structures to develop a containerized equipment enclosure for power plant applications in the U.S.
This OEM provides conventional to highly technical water treatment solutions for the energy, utility, and municipal markets. They are known as an innovator in the industry for creating cost-effective, energy-efficient, and environmentally-sustainable solutions.
Key Challenge: Tight Budget
When Falcon met with the OEM, they asked us to help them overcome one key challenge: Creating a financially feasible domestic water treatment equipment enclosure solution that typically costs half the amount when built overseas.
The Solution: Create a New Spec List and Find New Building Materials
After gaining a solid understanding of the OEM’s goals and technical requirements, Falcon’s engineering team created a cost-effective, industrial equipment enclosure solution.
We defined a new spec list, found alternative building materials, and designed an equipment enclosure that met all functional needs. These initiatives allowed the OEM and its client to reduce overall project costs.
Key features of Falcon’s proposed water treatment equipment enclosure solution included:
- Climate control system to maintain desired temperature.
- Full seam welded, epoxy coated, metal tread plate flooring for liquid containment.
- Multiple pass-through access points to accommodate pipes and electrical.
Falcon’s containerized solution checked all of the boxes for this leading water treatment solutions provider, including overcoming budget concerns. Moving forward, the new shipping container equipment enclosure design will be among the preferred solutions for the OEM’s water treatment systems.
