CE, for storage tanks
Tankwelder is a series of self-propelled 3 o’clock welding equipment primarily developed for on-siteerection of large storage tanks, silos, blast furnaces and similar cylindrical objects. It is available as asingle-side version and a double-side version. Usually it is designed to travel on the top edge of thetank shell. As there are different ways of building tanks, one machine in the series is designed totravel on a rail which is temporarily fixed to the shell or on a stand-alone ring outside the shell.Operator safety CE approvedThe operator of each machine (if a double-side version) rides in a cabin, where he supervises andcontrols the welding process with the control panel within easy reach. The cabin, whose floor levelunder the carriage is variable to suit the height of the plate, is built as a cage to give the operator(s)maximum safety and comfort. For weather protection the cage can be covered by curtains. The cabinof a double-side machine is equipped with step ladders and a joining bridge at the top to facilitate forthe operators to climb onboard. The bridge also has guard rails for the safety of the operators.
