M48 - Liquid transfer pumping - N Gauge

Details

Comes in kit form and requires construction and painting.



Industrial water treatment facilities cover a multitude of activities as part of the purification process before water can be returned to rivers and municipal drainage systems after use in manufacturing processes. Sometimes used water is recycled for local reuse but further processes must take place to eliminate possible health risks. When oil and other chemicals/metals are removed they are held in individual tanks until economical batches can be transferred to tank wagons and road tankers or tank-containers for shipping to the specialist for further purification, the slurry transfer process would take place at the transfer pumping station where several draw-off points would exist, each point designated for a specific type of slurry. Pumps would exist often in pairs should one fail and electrical control boxes for power supply and switch-gear operation. Small crane jibs are sometimes installed to help lift hoses to high level or to lift out a pump should replacement be necessary. The relating interconnected pipework and valve equipment is also very complex covering supply from a multitude of storage tanks. A small bund wall is usually present to retain any leakage and a grating provided for operator safety keeping them up at working level and off the wet and oily concrete base.

We have selected a triple point Liquid Transfer Pumping Station with pipework to the multi-pump arrangement terminating at and just above the bund-wall, it being possible to place these next to the storage tanks they serve, these being available as a separate kit. They can also be used in multiples should you with to create a more complex distribution centre. A small crane-jib and electrical control boxes are included as is the grating within the bund-wall. These are suitable for N-Gauge 1:148 to 1:160 scale size modelling and if required could be elevated to a higher level. If required, addition grating type walkway, pipework and fittings can be introduced to further interlink with other processing plant especially if tanks are to be located further away. With the majority of pipework from these tanks having a relatively small bore, we suggest 0.5mm brass-wire or similar be used, although our pump selection kit may be useful, available separately. The painting is straight forward with individual parts needing only one colour, with pipework orange and or dark grey, the grating black with top rubbed over with sandpaper to bring back the metal-silver colour, the pumps blue, electric & valve boxes grey and crane and valve Shut-off levers yellow, however colours given are not exact being a matter of choice. We also suggest bund-wall base-plate including blocks be painted a hint of green-beige to represent concrete.

Model can easily be used in a variety of other industrial settings or as a stand alone item.
