Storage Tank Repair Service
For internal and external rehab of tank shells, roofs, and bottoms, Banks Industrial Group (BIG) provides storage tank repairs, in accordance with API 653. Corrosion, settlement damage, and other natural hazards can quickly reduce a tank’s reliability and increase the total cost of ownership by:
Damaging weld seams and other vulnerable tank parts
Producing product leaks and hazardous material cleanup
Causing unexpected tank failures and associated downtime
To keep tanks safe, operational, and up-to-code, BIG offers quick and convenient storage tank repair services. Our team uses durable, cold-curing Belzona composite repair systems to rapidly mend the damages and leaks that result from corrosion and tank settlement. Belzona’s cold-curing qualities eliminate the need for time-consuming hot work, enabling our team to complete repairs in a matter of days, often with little to no downtime.

Storage Tank Corrosion and Erosion Can Cause Leaks, Shutdown, and Environmental Damage
Storage tank corrosion increases the risk of tank leaks, safety hazards, environmental damage, and loss of productivity due to shutdown. Corrosion often develops in hard-to-inspect areas—such as under insulation or within tank interiors. Over time, undetected corrosion can cause dangerous deterioration and force unexpected periods of downtime.
Traditional repair methods for thin-wall and through-wall tank corrosion are time-consuming, difficult, and frequently complicated by operational circumstances. For example, patch plates and other forms of hot work pose dangerous risks in potentially flammable and explosive environments.
To avoid dangerous workplace accidents, weld repairs often require a complete tank shut down so that a technician team can safely empty, clean, and mend the damaged area—causing a significant loss of productivity in the process. In other instances, operating conditions, complex geometries, replacement part availability, and/or damage severity can prohibit welded repairs altogether.
Cold-Curing Belzona Repair Compounds Improve the Storage Tank Repair Process
Banks Industrial Group offers a safe, time-saving alternative to traditional welding: Belzona polymeric repair compounds. Belzona thin-wall/through-wall repair compounds provide solutions comparable to, or stronger than, similarly welded repairs. Belzona compounds quickly cure at ambient temperature and do not require hot work. Tank repairs now take place within one or two days—not multiple weeks. In most cases, external tank repairs proceed while the tank remains in service.
BIG’s repair team provides durable and long-lasting repair of storage tank corrosion/erosion damage with minimal to no downtime. With the help of BIG’s storage tank repair services, you can extend the life of your tank without losing the time and money associated with conventional maintenance.
The primary techniques we use include polymeric metal rebuilding, cold plate bonding, and reinforced fiber wraps as determined by the specific application.
Repair solutions include:
Surface tolerant adhesion to repair wet, oily surfaces
Chemical resistance to withstand aggressive acids/alkalis
High-temperature surface repairs
Cold plate bonding to reinforce and repair thin-wall/through-wall damage
