One answer is to decommission the leaking tank and install a new one. The trouble with this approach is that steel tanks generally have a very short life span. Our experience, over many long years, is that even steel tanks with glass enamel coating last for only 3 to 4 years. Eventually, the coating is damaged, exposing the steel and allowing corrosion to set in.
Another approach, less costly and less disruptive is to go for a tank repair with a pvc liner. Once again this is not a long term solution. As you'll appreciate, in the harsh industrial environment a pvc liner is vulnerable to puncture and tears. Water or liquid pressure will force through the smallest puncture in the pvc and fill the void between liner and tank sides. You are, then, back to square one, responsible for a corroding and leaking tank that, now, needs relining.
The only long term, cost effective, least disruptive answer is a fibreglass lining. Fibreglass properties make it one of toughest and adaptable materials available to industry. However harsh or corrosive the operating conditions your tank has to work in we have the expertise to produce a lining to match it. With one of our tank linings we can help you break the expensive and stressful cycle of tank leak and tank repair.
Basically, our on-site tank lining process creates a fibreglass tank within your tank. You tank acts as a former. This highlights a fibreglass lining's additional advantage. Its high tensile and compressive strength means that even if your corroded tank has quite substantial holes it can probably be saved with a fibreglass lining. Call or contact Lining Services and let us help you extend the life of your tank. We guarantee our fibreglass linings for ten years but in actuality 20 plus years is not unheard of.
So, a fibreglass tank lining makes sense. Calling in Lining Services to do the job makes equal sense. Our experience and skilled workforce will ensure as smooth an operation on your site as possible. We work fast. We work as a team and in full co-operation with your production department.

With regard to the lining works - they appear sound, the floor area has a non-slip surface, the colour is a good match to our existing tank colour scheme and the surrounding area was left in a clean and tidy condition, so all in all a very good service.
