Composite Tank Repair

Industry: Power Generation - Fossil Fuel

Solution: Process Water and Fire Water

ID: CTR-1-00104

Project summary:

Inspectors at a power generation facility discovered extensive internal corrosion in their raw water storage tank. Because there was no previous coating, Microbially Induced Corrosion quickly degraded the tank with areas at less than 50% remaining wall thickness. The plant chose Advanced FRP’s immersion grade, carbon fiber reinforcement system with a glass flake reinforced epoxy topcoat. This provided a long term solution that would structurally reinforce the existing tank and prevent further corrosion.
