In 1995, the City of Rome, New York had Enduro launder and tank covers installed over its sludge thickening tank for odor control and to inhibit algae growth. After 21 years of use, David Marino, Working Supervisor for City of Rome, says: “Very satisfied. Excellent product. They have been practically maintenance free for 21 years and still look like new.”
Providing uniform access to the process, the Enduro Launder Covers are flat and walkable with integrated access hatches. The primary tank cover with profiled ribs exceeded the load requirements and need for intermittent foot traffic. Enduro has since expanded its tank cover product line to include flat covers with removable and walkable panels.
A key requirement for the FRP launder and tank cover was the ability to stand up to the corrosive nature of H2S gases and constant exposure to a wastewater environment. The City of Rome and Enduro Composites are pleased the FRP products have met and will continue to meet this requirement for years to come.
