Biogas Plants Shell System

The use of tensile systems in industrial facilities is one of the most effective methods of reducing energy costs and construction waste and making the building more sustainable. The use of fewer raw materials in these systems helps to maintain sustainability and reduce the negative impact on the environment. These structures contribute to LEED certification for green building and environmentally sound building design through their use of materials and resources, indoor environmental quality and innovation in design and technology. Industrial facilities are constantly exposed to moisture and harsh chemicals. These factors will cause metal coatings to corrode quickly and require frequent maintenance and replacement. PVC Membrane fabric lasts longer in corrosive environments. PVC fabric will never rust, even if it is constantly exposed to moisture.

The breathable texture of the fabric creates a climate sensitive building envelope. Fabric tends to retain heat and cold better than conductive building materials such as metal. This results in less condensation forming inside the structure, eliminating perspiration and moisture build-up. It eliminates corrosion caused by moisture accumulation and keeps the stored material dry. The very good gas permeability of the Biogas PVC Membrane material prevents bad odors during storage of raw materials subject to fermentation.
Flexible design options in suspended tensile membrane structures help to blend seamlessly with the function of the building and the surrounding area and to cross large openings with minimum weight. A visually impressive and modern structure is created. Large-scale, wide-span structures with high entrances and without columns can be designed quickly. Ultra-strength building systems that operate statically under high snow thickness and wind loads in all climatic conditions are created.
Architectural modeling, static analysis, structural analysis and wind tunnel test modeling, manufacturing models and details of the systems are completed in a complete, error-free and most technological way with DLUBAL RFEM software.
Since the static analysis of the membrane coating and carrier steel structure is calculated as a shell system in one go; the results are determined at the closest values to the reality, unlike traditional calculation methods. Subsequent revisions and additions to the project are realized in a practical way. There is no need to check all project files one by one, the revision is automatically processed in all details and calculations.
It can be installed in about a third of the time of conventional metal roofing. Suspended tensioning treatment plants are constructed in less time and at less cost. The facilities in the suspended tensioning system do not rust throughout the life of the building and require less maintenance. Service life is long.
Due to the absence of corrosion, the building life will also be extended.
PVC Fabric allows natural light to enter the building through the walls and ceiling.
is the only building material. There is no need for artificial lighting inside the building during the day.
This will save energy from ongoing energy costs. Facility
The bright atmosphere inside prevents the formation of mold and bacteria, which are very common.
Since it blocks UV rays, it reduces cooling air conditioning costs.
Biogas Membrane products comply with the European REACH directive (Registration, Evaluation and Authorization of Chemicals). Internationally recognized ISO 9001 quality standard in Germany
and complies with ISO 50001 for Energy management.
