FACTORS TO CONSIDER WHEN INSTALLING CORROSION-RESISTANT TANK LININGS

You may already be aware of the advantages of installing tank liners in your water, chemical, and gas tanks as a plant owner. To get the most out of corrosion-resistant tank linings, however, you must choose the right ones and install them correctly. Consider the following factors when choosing water tank liners, gas tank liners, and chemical tank liners, as well as installing them correctly. 

The majority of industrial facilities in Australia are more than 20 years old. As a result, many people require equipment maintenance and, in some cases, major tank or piping repairs. Facility managers in various industries face similar statistics and require creative solutions to keep their operations and tanks running smoothly.

Here at Raven Tanks, we bring decades of experience to the table. Our team consists of experts who have tackled corrosion challenges in various industries. We don’t believe in one-size-fits-all solutions. Every project is unique, and we tailor our services to your specific needs and challenges. Our customized approach ensures that you receive the most effective corrosion-resistant solution for your tanks.

Here are the types of Corrosion-Resistant Tank Linings you might want to consider.

     

      1. – Epoxy Coatings: They work by forming a protective layer on the substrate, typically a metal surface, to prevent corrosion. 

      1. – Polyurethane Linings: provide an impermeable barrier against moisture and chemicals, effectively preventing corrosion.

      1. – Glass-Fused-to-Steel (GFS) Tanks:  are highly durable and can withstand extreme environmental conditions, making them suitable for wastewater treatment plants, agricultural storage, and more.

    The Nature of the Chemicals You Store in Your Tanks

    Purchasing corrosion-resistant tank linings for your chemical tanks is simpler than purchasing water storage tank liners. This is because chemicals have different corrosion levels and react differently depending on the materials used to construct your tanks. The majority of tanks today are made of steel, fiberglass, metal, or concrete.

    Extremely corrosive chemicals, such as sulfuric acid, hydrogen peroxide, and hydrochloric acid, may corrode at a faster rate than mildly corrosive chemicals, such as zinc chloride. As a result, you should choose a tank lining that can withstand the most corrosive chemicals stored in your tanks. Not all corrosion-resistant tank linings can withstand all chemicals. As a result, you should choose a tank liner based on the chemicals you store in your tanks.

    Utilize Custom Tank Liners

    Even the best corrosion-resistant tank linings will be useless if they do not precisely fit your tanks. You don’t want to buy tank liners unless you know the exact dimensions of all the tanks in your plant. As a result, the leading tank liners and corrosion control product suppliers offer customized tank liners for tanks of all sizes and shapes.

    And How Do We Custom Tank Liners?

       

        • – Precise Fit: Custom tank liners are made to measure. They’re designed to fit your specific tank dimensions like a snug puzzle piece and ensure maximum coverage and protection, leaving no room for corrosion to sneak in.

        • – Addressing Unique Challenges: Custom liners are crafted with your unique needs in mind. Whether it’s an irregular shape, unusual material, or special environmental considerations, custom liners can accommodate it all.

        • – Optimal Material Selection: Choosing the right material is key to effective corrosion protection. We customize tank liners while you have the flexibility to select the ideal material that suits your application. This ensures that your tanks are shielded from specific corrosive agents, whether they are chemicals, saltwater, or other corrosive substances.

      Seek Professional Installation

      What good is a corrosion-resistant tank lining if it is not installed properly? A tank liner must completely cover the internal walls and floor of a tank in order to provide maximum protection. Otherwise, some components will be exposed to the liquids in the tank. 

      Corrosion occurs at a much higher rate when this occurs. Get a professional to install your tank liners, you are guaranteed liquid-tight containment to ensure that your corrosion-resistant tank lining installation is flawless and that no part of the tank is exposed to the stored chemicals.

        Consider If the Corrosion Resistant Tank Lining Meets Australian Government Standards

        The Australian Government has guidelines that regulate water plants, chemical plants, and gas plants. Given the sensitive nature of these liquids, it’s a good thing for the local and Australian Governments to have guidelines to ensure safe handling. This assures the local authorities that you can safely contain chemicals in your plant. 

        You must ensure that any chemical tank liners, gas tank liners, or water tank liners you install are FDA-approved. Finally, using corrosion-resistant tank linings will not only prevent corrosion but will also extend the life of your tanks.
