Industrial Tank Maintenance: A Multi-Step Process
The process involved in cleaning and painting industrial silos and storage tanks includes multiple steps:
Inspection: There are number of reasons to conduct a review of the condition of industrial tanks and silos prior to :
- Exterior Corrosion
- Interior condition
- Integrity of the tank or silo due to weather conditions, expansion and contraction
Preparation: Surface preparation is a critical step and different for every job. If there is no surface corrosion, the tank may simply benefit from a thorough power washing or sandblasting methods. If the unit itself is rusted or corroded, rust must be removed and a new coating applied. If the coating is loose or lifting off the surface, it must be removed either by hand or by industrial pressure washing.
Industrial Paint & Coatings: Choosing the correct interior or exterior coating is an important part of tank restoration. Eliminating or minimizing deterioration or corrosion protects the product, your assets, and reduces liability.
