The New Aquatech Pressmain A-Pod: a Packaged Plant Room

One room mounted to a steel skid

APOD_MG_5282_2016The A-Pod unit will provide the water services to a building through a combined booster set and a break tank, both inside one transferable pod.

Designed as a single piece item with two sections, one for stored water the other for a booster set, the unit can be delivered to site where, once positioned, it requires the simple connection of mains pipework, outlet pipework to services and electrical supply, making it a “plug in and play” unit.

The internal compartment for stored water is accessed by a lid mounted lockable manway. Tank sizes are available from 1,600 – 10,000 L nominal storage capacity.

The booster set is stored in the dry compartment and the internal wall has the inlet and outlet connection within it. The overflow, warning pipe and screened spill-over weir terminate through the wet side wall to outside so do not normally require any additional pipework.

Aquatech Pressmain have recently installed an A Pod at Union House, Hayes, Middlesex. The Union House is a block of 5 floors of serviced offices ran by Avanta. The challenge was to save space for the plantroom without the expensive option of structurally reinforcing a roof floor to support the tank required. The engineer opted for an A-Pod outside the building; the available space was found without any parking lot sacrifice and the planning permission was obtained.

Once the A-Pod was delivered, the installer was able to connect swiftly to the building’s pipework and today the system runs smoothly offering ample water flow to the tenants.
