Home Case Studies Valve Enclosures Provide Safe Operational Access At Chemical Storage Facility


Valve Enclosure

DOW Chemical Company’s chemical storage facility in Dubai recently identified a safety requirement to protect the main deluge valves within a chemical storage area from potential fire and explosions. The valves were located in an open and exposed area adjacent to the main chemical storage facility.

Invicta’s Durasteel division in the Middle East were tasked with designing 3-sided Durasteel barriers which had to be completely free-standing, wind resistant and weather-proof, and maintain their integrity within potentially harsh chemical atmospheric conditions.

Our solution was to build free-standing Durasteel valve protection enclosures constructed from 80mm x 60mm x 3mm steel channels with a single sheet of Durasteel bolted to the exterior surface.

Each enclosure was completely installed within 1.5 days from start to finish and now provides the valves with the blast and fire protection required to ensure continued and safe operational access in the event of a fire or explosion.

Site supervisor, Louie Aguilar, commented “it was a very fast installation, completed incredibly quickly by a very professional team and we are extremely pleased with the outcome.”
