Mobile Container Laboratory Definition and Solution
-FAQs about containerized laboratory, and some popular science tips
What is a mobile container laboratory?
The containerized laboratory is a modular laboratory reconstructed from shipping containers. It is characterized by being very sturdy and able to withstand greater pressure. The container laboratory can basically be installed in the factory, and the finished products can be transported to the work site by shipping vessel and truck. The advantages of this kind of mobile containerized laboratory are that it can be reused, is easy to disassemble and assemble, has superior performance, stability and firmness, good shockproof performance, relatively low cost, and very safe.
Is the container laboratory safe under thunderstorms?
Lightning occurs approximately 40 times per second on the earth. In the face of lightning of 3 million volts, is the metal box of the container laboratory safe? Regarding a closed metal space encountering a thunderstorm, according to Mike Faraday's theory: a metal box-shaped building is the safest place. When the electric charge is directed to a closed metal container, it will flow evenly around the periphery without passing through the container. It's the same in the plane.
Compared with traditional buildings, what are the advantages of container laboratories?
1. Containerized laboratory modular building, low cost, less than 30% than traditional buildings
2. The factory prefabrication reaches more than 80%, which reduces construction and decoration waste by about 99% compared with traditional construction methods
3. Modular splicing construction, fast, short construction period, saving more than 40% of construction time than traditional buildings
4. There is no requirement on the foundation, just flatten and harden
5. Standard shipping container, sturdy and durable, two times higher than the safety factor of conventional buildings, weather-resistant steel, special anti-rust paint surface, resistance to strong winds of 10, and earthquakes of 8
7. Compared with the brick-concrete structure building, the usable area has increased by 4%
8. Compared with brick-concrete structure houses, water consumption is only 1/30
What is a 3R principles of mobile containerized laboratory?
3R Principles of Mobile Containerized Laboratory
Removal: Reuse, easy to disassemble and assemble
Reliable: anti-corrosion, waterproof, resistance to 8 magnitude earthquake
How to heat and sound insulation the mobile containerized laboratory?
Depending on the environmental climate of the project site, the selection of thermal insulation materials will also be different.
For the requirements of heat and sound insulation, the interior of the container is sprayed with polyurethane foam and 50-100mm glass rock wool board is installed to prevent moisture and corrosion, heat and sound insulation. Air-conditioning should be installed indoors in hot areas. In cold areas, it is necessary to install floor heating, etc., and the outer layer is covered with decorative materials, such as Ou Song board, gypsum board, cement fiber board, polymer assembly board, etc.
What is the difference between weathering steel used in shipping containers and ordinary steel?
The mobile containerized laboratory of Qingdao Decent Group is transformed from shipping containers. The biggest advantage of shipping containers is the use of weathering steel. Weathering steel (also known as atmospheric corrosion resistant steel) refers to a low-alloy high-strength steel that has good corrosion resistance in the atmosphere by adding a small amount of alloying elements. The atmospheric corrosion resistance of weathering steel is 2-8 times that of ordinary carbon steel, and the longer the service time, the more prominent the corrosion resistance. In addition to good weather resistance, weathering steel also has excellent mechanics and welding properties, and is widely used in railway vehicles, bridges and containers. Weathering steel is not stainless steel, it will rust like ordinary carbon steel in the early stage, but the situation is different in the later stage. After the weathering steel is corroded for a period of time, due to the enrichment of trace elements such as Cu and P on the steel surface, a dense amorphous rust layer structure is formed, which is very firmly combined with the matrix. This stabilized rust layer can resist the intrusion of moisture and harmful ions in the atmosphere to a certain extent, and prevent further corrosion of the base metal.
What is the biggest shipping container size?
For common shipping containers, the biggest shipping container is 45 feet. The smallest shipping container is 20 feet. Of course, except for special customization. The following are the dimensions of various containers:
20-foot container: 20GP
