About the Research
These photographs show the mild steel effluent tank having been grit blasted and fibreglass lined. During the initial survey, the tank was showing a multitude of holes in the wall surfaces which had been plugged using bolts and wooden bungs.
- Project Title Effluent Storage Tank
- Category Tank Lining
- Location Manchester
A quote was given to grit blast and apply a fibreglass lining to the internal surfaces.
On receipt of an order, all necessary paperwork including Method Statement, Risk Assessment, confined space training certificates and insurance covers were issued to the client.
Once the paperwork was approved, a commencement date was agreed.
Following extensive grit blasting, an isophthalic resin primer was applied to all surfaces followed by a laminate consisting from 2 layers of 450 gram chopped strand matting impregnated with isophthalic resin. This was followed by a resin wash and topcoat of vinyl ester resin to fully seal.
The tank can continue to give years of trouble free service without the aforementioned leak problems which are now all sealed.
A 10 year guarantee was given.
