Assemble Formwork On The Ground
REDI-RADIUS forms assembled on the ground at full height in 12′ (3.6 m) wide gangs
Construction of Anaerobic Digester Tanks
As the demand for renewable natural gas (RNG) increases, many farm operations have begun installing anaerobic digesters to process animal waste as a source of green energy. JP Tank, of Eldorado, Wisconsin, was contracted to install a pair of these digesters at Shiloh Dairy in Brillion, Wisconsin.
Most Efficient Approach To Forming A Curved Concrete Wall
JP Tank was able to assemble the REDI-RADIUS forms on the ground at full height in 12′ (3.6 m) wide gangs.
Assembly of Curved Formwork Wall
Once the forms were assembled, they were picked flat and set on a shaping table made with EFCO SUPER STUDS to set the required curved formwork. Once the shaping was complete, they were picked from horizontal to vertical and set in place.
Opportunities To Increase Efficiency
EFCO Engineering and Field Service teams are always available to review and discuss the formwork solutions prior to each project to address any potential issues and identify opportunities for increased efficiency.
