Below are some frequently asked question, please feel free to browse and learn about various aspects of our work. This page will be updated continuously. If you have any question you would like to see answered here send them over in an email!

  • A dry bulk system is a method used to transport and handle powdered or granular materials, like grains or cement, without the need for liquid medium. It typically involves storage silos, conveyors, and transfer equipment, facilitating efficient movement of materials in industries such as agriculture and construction.

  • A clarifier is a component of a water treatment system designed to separate solids from liquids through a process called sedimentation or clarification. It works by allowing suspended particles in water or wastewater to settle to the bottom of a tank while clear water rises to the top. This separation process helps remove impurities and pollutants from the water, making it cleaner and safer for disposal or reuse. Clarifiers are commonly used in municipal wastewater treatment plants, industrial facilities, and other applications where water clarification is necessary. Clarifier can be of either field weld or bolted construction. CTS offers a fully Bolted Elevated Clarifier, click here to learn more. Bolted Elevated Clarifiers

  • An above ground storage tank (AST) is a container used to store liquids like petroleum, chemicals, or water in industrial or commercial settings. They're typically made of steel, fiberglass, or concrete, and come in various shapes and sizes. ASTs are regulated for safety and may require regular inspection and maintenance to prevent leaks and environmental risks.

  • Bolted tanks and field welded tanks are two common types of storage tanks used in various industries. The primary difference lies in their construction methods. Bolted tanks are assembled on-site using prefabricated panels or sheets made of materials like steel or fiberglass. These panels are bolted together to form the tank structure, allowing for easier transportation and installation. On the other hand, field welded tanks are constructed by welding together individual steel plates or sheets at the construction site.

  • A millwright is a skilled tradesperson who installs, maintains, and repairs industrial machinery and equipment in settings like factories and power plants. They assemble machinery, adjust components, and perform maintenance to keep equipment running efficiently and safely.

  • The synchronized jack system is a method used to lift heavy loads evenly and precisely. This system employs multiple hydraulic or mechanical jacks s controlled by a central control unit. Each jack is synchronized with the others to ensure that all lifting points move simultaneously and evenly, preventing tilting or uneven stress on the load.

  • Storage tanks are designed for liquids and gases, such as water or oil, while storage silos are tall, cylindrical structures used for bulk solids like grains or cement. Top of Form
