Storage tanks are used in many industries including chemical processing, oil and gas refining, aquaculture, food processing, agriculture, waste-water treatment, power generation, pulp and paper, steel production, concrete production, and others. Storage tanks are expensive and any organization that uses them must be concerned about corrosion and leaks, cost of repairs, potential penalties for leaks as well as protecting the environment.
Today, repairs using fiberglass reinforced plastic/polymers (FRP) can be a great option for both FRP water storage tanks and steel bottom tanks requiring repairs. FRP repairs can be accomplished quickly, save money and effectively extend the storage tank life, protecting the tank from chemical effects, and the impact of abrasion and high heat.
FRP Repairs are a Fast, Versatile Solution for Tank Refurbishing
If a storage tank bottom is corroding or if the tank walls are pitted and cracked, it is time for an important repair. Replacing the tank bottom or the entire tank can be a huge and possibly unnecessary expense. FPR repairs or FPR wraps can do the job swiftly, securely and more economically that major replacement work. The complete interior of a tank can be coated with an FPR lining, thus providing a complete solution for corrosion.
