Cunningham Covers manufacture a protective covering system for both steel tanks and concrete tanks and we supply these to many industries such as renewable, water processing and agriculture. These covers have many advantages for these industries so are a must for any new tank installations or for any retrofitted tanks.
We have been commissioned to manufacture and fit these covers right across the world so we have many years experience in this type of system. These have been manufactured as standard but we can also modify them to suit our clients needs to solve the specification problem. Our job is to make your life easier and bring a solution that will save you money long term with a cover that stands up to any environment.
For the agriculture industry; they store slurry in their stores which require protective covers to prevent rainfall entering the tanks and filling up the tank. By adding these protective covers too over ground slurry stores, farmers and anaerobic digestion plant owners can increase the actual slurry storage of the tank by as much as 15-25%. (Storage is a big problem for farmers when it comes to slurry so spending money on a huge tank to store water doesn’t make much sense, using a Cunningham tank cover means you store more slurry and less rainwater.) (The nutrient content is also improved with the use of roof covers due to the slurry not being diluted with rainwater.)
A protective cover also reduces odours and loss of ammonia by 80-90%. It keeps nitrogen in that could otherwise be lost to the environment and reduces the cost of spreading rain water normally collected by the tank.
We can make the covers for any size of slurry tank. The system uses a centre beam to hold cover in place. Vents in the cover allow gases to escape.
This cover enables end-users to comply with the environmental permit for intensive farming. Environment agencies now recommend that all slurry stores are now covered.
For water treatment plants having a roof to protect their storage is a must for keeping contaminants out. The cover doesn’t come in to contact with the water but sits over the tank’s frame with a support pole. During the treatment process having a storage tank that can be considered free from containments is imperative and helps with increasing their overall storage during this process.
