Repairing damaged or corroded product storage tanks has been a challenge over time in the oil & gas industry. The eventual choices left to station owners or operators are to, either abandon these tanks or replace them completely. None of these choices are business friendly, either leading to loss of revenue and/or increased spend.
Tank Stratification was developed as the better choice offering cost and operational advantages over abandoning or replacing damaged tanks.
Tank Stratification, also known as Tank Coating can thereby be deployed to address the following:
- Seal noticed leakages in tank
- Remediate noticed corrosion in tanks
- Reinforce tank internals
- Proactively prevent leakages and corrosion in tanks
- Transformation of the entire inner tank surface thereby achieving the highest standard of environmental safety.
Prior to coating tank internals with synthetic epoxy resins and fibre for Tank Stratification work, tank cleaning and surface preparation activities are carried out. These specialized activities are performed using high performance equipment from Graco and other manufacturers which include:
- Ecoquip 2 Vapour Abrasive Blasting Machine
- Hydraclean Pressure Cleaner
- Husky Double Diaphragm Pumps
Smartflow also utilizes world-class Graco Equipment such as XL70 Spraying Machine and Sets of Husky Pumps in applying resin coats on the tank internals.
