The Trelawny VL303 Low Vibration Needle Scaler has once again been put through its paces in yet another mammoth challenge; maintenance works on the 18th century Flatholm Lighthouse in the Bristol Channel. MPS Contracts, a company specialising in maintenance and painting works, were awarded the contract to repaint the lighthouse. The project provided many challenges not least the location itself; “Flatholm Island is a very
important Bird Sanctuary so work was limited to non-breeding times and heavy materials had to be transported to and fro by helicopter” said project manager for MPS Contracts Stephen Miller “MPS Contracts specialise in awkward access projects, such as lighthouses.”...

GOODYEAR TYRES

Long Reach Paint Removal (18)

The Trelawny SPT Long Reach scraper is the perfect tool for removing built up deposits from floors, walls and machinery in industrial plants and factories. A recent product demonstration saw the tool put to work removing rubber build up from the floors of a Goodyear tyre factory. The factory’s manufacturing processes lead to a large build-up of rubber that needs to be removed from the floors. Current manual methods are slow, ineffective and labour intensive necessitating long clean up periods and reducing productivity. The Long Reach made simple work of the job, the 102mm scraper blade quickly cutting through the built up material leaving a clean floor ready to resume production...

U.N Ro-Ro is a Turkish shipping company. Established in 1994, they operate 12 vessels which transport freight to European countries from Turkey. The cargo deck has freight trucks and trailers weighing between 20 and 40 tons loaded and unloaded onto the ship. The manoeuvring of trucks and trailers as well as salt water coming onto the deck damage the surface as shown. The aim of this project was to resurface the decks and give it a brand new look and feel. They decided to use Trelawny’s TFP200 because it was designed with a 200mm cutting width, increasing the surface area that can be treated at one given time, its precise screw type scaling head adjustment, and its easy to manoeuvre design...
