Exhaust Filter House in New Top Coat Facility
Ford Motor Company Australia Ltd
Ford commissioned Pexim Australia to solve a problem of fallout from the clear coat exhaust stack located on the factory roof (20m high). The matter was of great urgency considering its environmental nature. Within 60 days , Pexim Australia designed, manufactured and installed a new filter house on the Top Coat Facility Roof, complete with neccessary services (power, lights, sprinklers, storm water etc). Hot dip structure, filter house constructed from cool room panels, custom designed filter modules, exhaust ductwork with sampling ports for EPA, access walkways and ladders. To achieve installation during a very limited downtime (Christmas shutdown), the facility was partly assembled in our factory. It was then transported and assembled completely at the Ford site. In the end, as a complete structure it was lifted with a 140 ton capacity crane to the TCF roof. This approach also provided a very safe working site for our crew. The final stage of the installation consisted of an access walkway, handrails and building of the filter house enclosure around the filter frames.
