Problem: Storage Tank Corrosion / Erosion Can Cause Leaks, Shutdown and Environmental Damage

Storage tank corrosion indicates an increased risk for tank leaks, safety hazards, environmental damage and productivity loss due to shutdown. Corrosion will often develop in an area hidden from inspection under insulation or within a tank interior where it can eventually deteriorate to a dangerous level.

Traditional repair methods (such as patch plates) for thin-wall and through-wall tank corrosion using hot work can be difficult, time-consuming or precluded by operational circumstances. Hot work adds risk in potentially flammable or explosive environments. Because of this, weld repairs often require a costly shutdown, emptying, and clean-out of the tank, carrying with it lost productivity costs. In other instances, operating conditions, complex geometries, availability of replacement parts or the severity of the damage can prohibit welded repairs.

Solution: Cold-Curing Belzona Repair Compounds

Banks Industrial Group offers a safer and time-saving alternative using Belzona polymeric repair compounds. We can provide durable and long-lasting repair of storage tank corrosion / erosion damage with minimal, or no downtime. The customer saves time and money while extending the service life of their storage tank asset.

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.

The primary techniques we use include polymeric metal rebuilding, cold plate bonding and reinforced fiber wraps as determined by the specific application needs. Furthermore, these options allow us to quickly accommodate a great variety of repair situations such as:
