RSA-Talke's state-of-the-art chemical logistics - Dubai (ARE)
This new location combines all the services needed to handle, store, clean, repair and test tank containers. Apart from handling empty tanks, there is a large depot, which includes modern firefighting equipment protecting the area where loaded tanks are stored.
With the first stage completed, RSA-Talke is now ready to start operations. The second phase will include a dangerous goods warehouse and a drumming facility.
The cleaning system was designed and installed by Gröninger. It features two drive-through lanes that are subdivided into four cleaning positions. The drive-through bays are the first of their kind in the UAE and especially designed to clean containers that are mounted on chassis’. This eliminates the need for lift-on and lift-off services and increases the turn-around time of the container. In addition the bays will eventually be used for tank containers from the depot.
Six multi-purpose positions are equipped for (latex) cleaning and heating. The containers are placed on a trolley and manoeuvred into position by a forklift. A special Gröninger Latex Circulation Unit is installed to circulate an alkaline based chemical to clean containers that are contaminated with latex and/or resins. Two positions are equipped with standard high pressure rotor jets. Four positions are dedicated for heating services where steam or electricity can be used. The steam system is controlled by a temperature sensor to protect the tank from overheating.
In order to comply with local waste water regulations and to reduce the consumption of water, which is a valuable commodity in the UAE, a comprehensive waste water treatment system was designed. The system includes various treatment stages, leading to water that can be partly reused in the cleaning system.
