Secondary Containment for Transformer Bund

Spray Applied Seamless, Monolithic Bund Liners

Impervious secondary containment bunding is now a legal requirement in Australia especially around tanks, storage vessels and other plant that contains liquid that can be dangerous or hazardous to the environment.

Bund Liners that meet EPA Requirements

Bunds should be designed to contain spillages and leaks of liquids used, stored or processed above ground and to facilitate clean-up operations. As well as being used to prevent pollution of the receiving environment, bunds are also used for fire protection, product recovery and process isolation.” http://www.epa.sa.gov.au/xstd_files/Waste/Guideline/guide_bunding.pdf accessed 01/10/2014

Rhino Linings RhinoGuard 2195, a Hybrid Polyurethane, is the ideal solution for long-term sealing of bund areas and protection against attack by transformer oil.

For this particular project, special cleaning techniques were developed to remove transformer oil that had already been spilt and seal the concrete before coating with RhinoGuard 2195.   This ensured that the transformer bund would contain all spilt oil/water mixture during the remaining life of this infrastructure.

No More Leaks, No more Fines by Authorities

Lining bunds like this demonstrate to the EPA / State / Federal authorities that a company has made a concentrated effort to contain any leaks saving them hundreds of thousands of dollars in future possible fines.

The work was carried out by Sydney based Rhino Linings Approved Applicator Australian Protective Coatings.

Solutions for Water & Waste Water Containment Problems

Experiencing Difficulty When it Comes to Containing Waste Water?

Inferior sealants and lining alternatives for your water channels require constant and costly monitoring and maintenance. Look beyond those short-term solutions and join thousands of satisfied customers in more than 65 countries that have utilised the innovative products of Rhino Linings Australasia to contain their waste-water and avoid time-consuming and costly spillages.

Rhino Linings Australasia Pty Ltd is a trusted brand, best known as the manufacturer and supplier of spray applied membranes used in road vehicle and marine vessel protection as well as a wide range of industrial applications. However, what you may not be aware of is the cost-effective, long-term containment solutions that we can provide for the water and waste-water industries.

THE COLIBAN WATER AUTHORITY CASE STUDY

The Coliban Water Authority in Victoria had a problem. Large volumes of precious water were escaping through the old, deteriorated concrete base and earthen irrigation channels in the Bendigo and Ballarat regions. The location of the channels was also proving to be a challenge, as they wound through the delicate National Parks and specialised farmlands of North Eastern Victoria.

With sensitive environmental considerations and difficult terrain preventing vehicular access, it appeared that Coliban would be drawn into a long and costly channel restoration process while absorbing the cost of water draining from the compromised channel system. What a waste of time and money!

Fortunately, Rhino Linings Australasia Pty Ltd had the solution. Our polyurethane spray system was perfect for lining the failed water channels.

Lightweight and durable application equipment meant that the remote location and difficult terrain proved no problem for our product technicians.

With just one application of our remarkable elastomer, the integrity of the channels was restored, effectively preventing further loss of valuable H2O and increasing the transfer flow rate considerably.

The Coliban Water Authority was so impressed that Rhino Linings has since been their first choice when confronted with other wastewater concerns.

Rhino Linings Used in Restoration to Keep Street, Basements Dry

Ontaria, Canada: A major Belleville Traffic Artery and Buildings at Less Risk of Flooding.

By Luke Hendry, USA

Quinte Conservation is nearing completion of the $700,000 restoration of its flood wall between the Moira River and Cannifton Road.

The work is being done above the McLeod dam just north of College Street East. Quinte Conservation operates an electricity generating station at the dam.

Bryon Keene, Quinte Conservation's water resources manager, said the result will be a long-lasting solution that will keep water where it should be: in the river.

"This is like a levee," said Keene as he stood on the floodwall. "This will be really great flood protection."

The PVC liner installed along the dam wall in 1978 had decayed and was damaged over the years, he said. That caused problems with a drain system in the headpond - the area where the water gathers before passing through the dam. Water has also been seeping through the liner.

Water made it into the basement of one Cannifton Road business in the spring of 2008, when there was widespread flooding in the Moira watershed and others.

Rod Bovay, Belleville's acting director of engineering and development services, said the upgrade will put to rest the city's concerns.

"There was some concern with some groundwater seeping and getting into the basements on the east side of Cannifton Road," Bovay said, adding the city also wanted to ensure the busy street itself wouldn't be affected by flooding.

The city and conservation authority have always worked well together, Bovay said, and for about two years had been working together on the issues.

He said the changes mean Quinte Conservation and the city - and therefore residents - will be satisfied.

"They'll be able to keep the pond at the level they need but hopefully we won't have any impact on the properties on the east side," said Bovay. "We're happy to see it get done."

Keene said the new design should protect public and private property even from high waters of a so-called "100-year flood."

Once completed it will look merely like a rocky slope, but he new system will be a big improvement, Keene said.

"We feel it's going to give us a whole lot longer (floodwall) life," said Keene.

A fabric lining is placed in a shallow trench, then sprayed with a polyurea coating. Gravel and later larger stones will be layered above that.

"It's not going to harm the environment because it's 100% solids. It's not easily biodegradable," said Ron LoPresto, technical director for manufacturer Rhino Linings.

The lining is manufactured by Rhino Linings Corp. Technical director Ron LoPresto said the installation is similar to lining "a gigantic truck bed" 1,030 feet in length. Jim and Shari Sauer's Trenton company - currently nameless after a shift in focus - was applying the polyurea Wednesday.

LoPresto said the lining should last for a few decades. "The minimum would be 20 years," said LoPresto.

Keene said the hope is for a 40-year lifespan."From here on it'll just be annual maintenance," he said.

The restoration is to conclude in the first week of September; the water level will be raised gradually, reaching its usual level by mid-September. Keene said energy generation will resume at about the same time.
