Rigorous Factory Acceptance Testing

All Cloacina package plants and equipment are factory-assembled, filled with fresh water and rigorously tested as a complete and operational system before they leave the factory. Some of our Factory Acceptance Testing (FAT) protocol includes:

    • All tankage is checked to ensure it is constructed to the exact specifications of the drawings
    • All inside and outside welds are checked and determined to be leak free
    • All interior tank compartments are determined to be leak free
    • All pipe penetrations are determined to be leak free
    • All tank compartments are cleaned and determined to be leak free
    • All welds are cleaned and passivated (Cloacina uses a chemical and electrical passivation process)
    • All exterior walls are determined to be leak free
    • All exterior penetrations are determined to be leak free
    • All electrical equipment is rotation tested
    • All electrical equipment full load amps are verified and recorded for baseline establishment
    • All tank compartments are determined to be free of slag and then passivated inside
    • Controls system alarms, trending, notifications and set-points are verified and recorded
    • If applicable, the hatch door is assembled and is determined to be leak free
    • All exterior welds on the tank are brushed and free of spatter and slag
    • All manual processes are performed and adjusted for ease of operation
    • Initial set-points for all equipment are logged
