TF Design | Thermodynamics Fluids & Design | Green Energy

TF Design designed and constructed Aluminium Access Ramps for forklift access to rotary kilns for maintenance and repair purposes.

Client Requirements:

  • During maintenance and repair, access to rotary kiln required for loaded forklift.
  • Access ramp to be installed by forklift. Ramp weight limitation dictates use of structural aluminum.
  • Space limitations due to burner pipe position.
  • Sufficient access to platform and alternative access points.


  • Initial meetings and concept formulation.
  • Detailed structure design including FEM analyses.
  • Final site interface checks against design before manufacture.
  • Manufacture and site implementation.
