Concrete Problems With Concrete Tanks
Concrete tanks are durable structures well suited for storing and processing water. However, problems can occur as they age. Time and exposure to harsh operating conditions eventually cause deterioration leaving these structures vulnerable to increased wear, corrosion, potential leaks and loss of containment.
Concrete tank problems typically result from:
- Cracks due to tank settlement that allow water penetration and leaks
- Freeze thaw cycling causes cracks and separated joints to leak
- Wet dry cycling causes cracks and separated joints to leak
- Chemical attack wearing away coatings and linings and exposing concrete to damage and corrosion
- Abrasion wearing away coatings and linings and exposing concrete substrate to damage
- Erosion damage to concrete surfaces
- Spalled concrete and structural damage from rebar corrosion
Most concrete tank problems are manageable if action is taken promptly. However, deterioration and repair costs will significantly increase if maintenance is ignored. Eventually, the tank will fail and complete replacement will be required to fix the problem.
BIG provides a range of repair and coating services to prolong the service life of these valuable assets. Our skilled field crews work in a safe and efficient manner to minimize downtime and quickly place your tank back in service.
Our concrete tank services include:
- Remove areas of deteriorated concrete, repair and resurface with specialized epoxy mortar
- Repairing cracks using hydrophilic & hydrophobic chemical grout for wet leaks & epoxy resin injection for structural dry concrete cracks
- Replacing failed expansion joint seals with specialized elastomeric to prevent leaks
- Application of specialized protective coatings to shield concrete from erosion, corrosion, abrasion and chemical attack
Concrete Tank Problems We Solve Include:
Deteriorated Concrete Tank Walls and Floors
We remove areas of spalled, deteriorated concrete then patch with non-porous Belzona materials that bond tenaciously and are proven to withstand extreme conditions. Specific formulations are selected to match your site conditions and will hold up to constant immersion, chemical attack, abrasion and impact.
Failed Concrete Coatings and Linings
BIG will remove run-down coatings and linings, repair any concrete defects, then apply a fresh protective coating. Our premium coatings such as Belzona 5811 have a proven record of erosion, corrosion and chemical protection for equipment operating under immersion.
Eroded Clarifier Troughs
Concrete clarifier troughs are vulnerable to erosion and chemical attack from constant water flow. BIG restores eroded trough concrete to its original profile and can apply a protective coating to further extend service life.
Crumbling Clarifier Skimmer Wheel Track
Clarifier wall tops deteriorate from skimmer arm movement and freeze thaw which causes cracks and separated expansion joints. This hurts smooth skimmer operation when wheels bump and impact the joints. BIG quickly rebuilds concrete to original profiles and seals joints with elastomeric.
Separated Expansion Joint Seams
We use high performance elastomeric such as Belzona 2211 to replace worn expansion joint and abutment seals. 2211 will withstand up to 700% elongation and exposure to a variety of chemicals. When necessary we will also repair cracked concrete edges and nosings with high performance epoxy mortars to ensure a reliable seal.
Concrete Tank Leaks
We use epoxy or polyurethane grout injection repair methods to repair cracks and leaks caused by concrete shrinkage, settlement and freeze thaw movement. Epoxy grout restores structural integrity. Polyurethane grout will stop leaks.
