Thread: Condo rig

  1. #1

    Default Condo rig

    Hey here's a picture of one of our condo rigs. I want to add another 8gpm cold machine to it, but running out of space I also would like to possibly add bigger gas tanks

    Has anyone ever stacked machines, what I am thinking is have my welder build a rack/stand not quite all the way over the front two machines, but half way over and then that space under up near the water tank add larger gas tanks. I wonder about vibration with them being stacked

    Can I also run more than one machine off a gas tank? I have a fear of that much gas and that many machines so close to each other. any ideas or thoughts??

    I have some space in the back, but I really want to save that space for other 5's of chems and stuff

    you could probably get one big gas tank to run all three machines. I dont know about stacking them that sounds a little scary.

    Tell ya what, Drop it off at my place I will will figure something out for you. I'll get it back to you around Oct.

    this tank is only 30" tall you could easily build a frame/deck above the tank. I like these tanks because they offer a low center of gravity and look sweet to.

    this will be the layout of my next commercial rig

    Stack the machines, one 20-30 gallon gas tank behind them. You may even talk to your welder and see if he will make you a metal tank just make sure to have a vent on the tank. On one rig I have a 35 gallon diesel tank and 20 gallon gas tank. That will last about 4 nights and everything runs out of fuel at about the same amount of time including the van, chemical tank, and generator. Works out really well just not a fun fuel bill when you refill everything

    Jeff you can stack them just make sure you have enough space between them to change filters and maintenance the machines on the bottom. You can also run all of the machines off of one tank just make sure it has adequete ventilation or it will choke your fuel flow.

    Jeff,
    Make sure when you stack machines you have the water flow to the intakes of the machines,you may have to pump the water up that high. Just my 2 cents.

    Thanks all, I have had machines a little elevated from water no problems, do you think I will have problems putting machine up and water supply .

    As soon as I rework my other enclosed trailer I will be working on this one

    Man my enclosed is getting eaten alive by 12%. I keep 3 55 gallon drums at the front of it and have the hand pump, but chem is always going to spill. I think I need to switch from drums to a tank. I redid half the floors, half the walls and put in Line X 2 year ago and its all eaten up real bad again. I like the drums because sometimes I will have 3 drums of 12% or just 2 and the third will be degreaser as needed

    These pics are from a couple years ago, before the LineX was applied, man in about a year it was eaten up, now its going right through the outside of the trailer. I was going to line it with some heavy gauge Stainless but Its pretty pricey stuff . I may just have to go with the tank

    Jeff,
    The spills will certainly get you, but the gasses that are put off by the 12% will also eat the trailer alive. Venting is very important as well. The thin guage of the trailer walls will not do well. One of the ways to prevent that it to coat the interior of the trailer with an industrial coating made for chem resistance. This is the wood but also the interior metal parts. As far as the floor goes, when you put down a new floor, get the best plywood that you can find, prime it both sides and edges, caulk it in place and then coat with the lineX or what ever you choose to use. I have had great success with Herculiner, it is MEK based and so far indestructible under pretty harsh conditions.

    Mike hit the nail on the head! Look to the left in the first picture, the rust and corrosion on the cage around that tank is from gas exposure.
