Composite Tank Repair

Industry: Water & Wastewater

Solution: Water Tanks

ID: CTR-7-00085

Project summary:

A large riveted steel tank containing raw seawater was found to have excessive internal corrosion, a number of through-wall failures, and even external corrosion. Composite tank repair was recommended as an alternative to full tank replacement and to avoid solvents or other molecules leaching into seawater that could affect marine life at the facility.
