When we consider factors such as lifetime costs, return on investment and maintenance requirements, the terms ‘low cost’ and ‘cost-effective’ often prove to be almost polar opposites, however they normally tend to be used interchangeably.
With operationally challenging environments such as the water treatment sector, maintenance implications alone can quickly negate any initial cost savings made by opting for the lowest cost installation.
However, with fixed bridge scrapers it is possible to have the best of both worlds. The A&J Fabtech range of fixed bridge scrapers includes full and half-bridge units designed to offer the most cost-effective option – affordable design, supply and installation combined with minimal maintenance throughout the bridge’s whole working life.
Affordability comes by virtue of a modular design, which means that fixed bridge scrapers can be rapidly built and easily adapted to meet specific process requirements. Affordability is further aided through the availability of a full range of complementary accessory components. The fact that A&J Fabtech carries out all the design, manufacture and factory testing of various components also helps to guarantee long term reliability.
The full range of options on A&J Fabtech fixed bridges includes various below water level construction materials, weir and launder cleaning equipment, supply and installation of GRP on-tank features, scum control equipment and complete design and supply of the electrical equipment.
A&J Fabtech can offer a full turnkey solution incorporating all products and services, from site survey and equipment specification, through design and manufacture, to electrical and mechanical installation, after-sales and ongoing maintenance.
