Because of the way the system was designed, the building had to be constructed of three completely separate compartments. One room housed the chemical feed system itself. The second room protected a water heater necessary for the system. The third compartment contained a SCADA system that had all the computers, instrumentation and controls necessary to properly monitor the system and communicate back to the personnel in charge of the systems. This was no problem for Shelter Works, as every building is custom-engineered to fit exactly what each individual application requires.
In addition, the building itself needed to be chemically resistant, as ferric chloride would be used in this process. Ferric chloride can be corrosive to metals, but Shelter Works’ fiberglass construction provided the perfect solution for this project.
