Before you consider installing a second timber treatment plant, investigate whether you are getting the maximum production out of your existing plant.Dolphin Bay can undertake a plant optimisation study and, depending on the results, help you to optimise the treatment process flow, and / or re-engineer those aspects of the plant that need improvement.
The result will be that your plant achieves maximum output, and maximum turnover for your company.
Your Dolphin Bay sales representative can assess the production levels you can achieve with your plant design, and how these could be improved.
“Plant optimisation studies, and technical improvements that follow, are an important part of our technical service offering to our clients, in our effort to do all we can to ensure their long-term success,” says Bertus.
Our sales representatives are finding that many treatment plants are designed without input from a treatment chemicals expert and, as a result, are not engineered for optimal production.
Our sales representative visits clients across the African continent, and recently assisted with a number of plant upgrades. The results were extremely successful. In the most recently example, a client was achieving only two treatment cycles daily before the improvements, and is now achieving four – a 100% increase in production levels.
Our sales and technical advisors will assist you with the planning and improvement process. First, we will discuss the project and assess the priorities and costs with you. After we have agreed upon a plan, the Dolphin Bay team will be actively involved in the project management, to ensure that the plan is implemented successfully.
Dolphin Bay’s technical experts have come to the conclusion that nine plants out of ten that are designed without input from a treatment chemicals expert, will experience problems. “This is a staggering proportion, making it a priority for us to assist our customers,” says Bertus.
Dolphin Bay has conducted plant optimisation studies, and the subsequent plant upgrades, for several clients. Typical improvements have included a new process flow for the plant, bigger pipes, the addition of extra tanks, and new pumps.
To avoid the trouble and cost of these upgrades, and the inevitable loss of production time, Dolphin Bay recommends that you obtain advice from a Dolphin Bay timber treatment expert before opting to buy any particular plant, or consider installing a second plant.
“It is crucial to get things right before you place the order, so that you know exactly what you will get, and how it will perform,” says Bertus.
“We are able to help our clients to achieve the best possible plant design. And of course, if you have bought a plant that is not performing as well as it should, please contact us, and we can help you find a solution.”
