A facility with an LPG loading terminal was in a location that got slippery and muddy during the harsh Canadian winters or when it rained. The terminal also had trip hazards and was wearing out hose prematurely. Through Northern Platforms, our Canadian distributor, they were able to work with the customer’s budget and provided a turn-key solution that was installed in a single day. In addition to an ErectaStep platform, this solution included a hose retriever system to keep excess hose raised off the ground. The hose retriever keeps the loading hoses off the ground and makes it easier and safer for the truck operator to load the truck. Additionally, it prevents safety hazards, kinks, tangles, and prolongs the life of the hose. The hose retriever base plate and hose support were installed directly to the ErectaStep platform.
Even though our ErectaStep is a patented prefabricated modular system that is easily assembled on-site without the need for special tools, this platform was prebuilt offsite and trucked in to reduce site logistics and decrease installation time.
Now the operator no longer has to fight with the hoses during loading. The upgraded LPG terminal with the hose retriever is easier to handle and the aggressive stamped platform surface provides the operator with a positive traction environment, even under extreme weather conditions common to Canada.
