WEST MONROE, LA, Nov. 13, 2009 -- TIGG Corporation was awarded the contract for the West Monroe Municipal Water Treatment System Upgrade, valued in excess of $500,000. This milestone project for TIGG signifies entry into a new market as well as establishing new capabilities for steel tank and pressure vessel fabrication.
After a detailed assessment conducted by local authorities, the City of West Monroe, Louisiana upgraded its municipal drinking water facility to accommodate a growing population and to meet drinking water standards for color. TIGG designed, fabricated and assembled a complete multi-media filtration system to remove treatment solids and to process a flow of 1.7-2.6 million gallons/day. The system consists of five separate 150 psi vessels, a carbon steel pipe rack (including interconnecting piping for influent, effluent and backwash flows), and automated (air actuated) valves to allow forward and backwash flows through the system.
TIGG put their manufacturing capabilities to the test with the West Monroe Municipal Job. For the first time, they produced 10 ft diameter steel pressure vessels at their ASME code shop in Heber Springs, AR. "We've grown comfortable with manufacturing pressure vessels up to eight feet in diameter, but this is the first time we accepted the challenge of fabricating 10 ft diameter tanks. We were all pleased with the results and the opportunity to demonstrate our growing fabrication capabilities," commented Georgiana Riley, President of TIGG Corporation.
TIGG Corporation has been engineering and manufacturing steel tanks and pressure vessels as adsorbers and filters for over 30 years. Building on this experience they are now offering to build these units to customer specifications for a wide range of applications.
TIGG Corporation, headquartered in Oakdale, PA (near Pittsburgh), designs and fabricates systems that use activated carbon and other purification media to treat water, wastewater, air, and process streams. They are also manufacturers of steel tanks and pressure vessels. TIGG Corporation is a certified Woman Owned Small Business. Website: www.TIGG.com or www.TIGGtanks.com
