Potable Water Storage

The Problem

Due to the age of the storage tank, internal corrosion was such that the integrity of the tank had to be refurbished.

Requirement

To provide a lining that would both protect against future corrosion and comply with health and safety requirements within the food industry.

Solution

By grit blasting, localised repairs by “cold bonding” of plates and coating of the interior of the tank, the life of the tank is now extended for a minimum 10 years. A warranty was issued to cover both coating system and workmanship

Benefit of the Client

  • Minimal disruption to production programme
  • Significantly reduced cost versus replacement unit
  • Compliance with health and safety requirements
