Steel Sheet Corrosion Protection with Denso’s Coal Tar Epoxy
Industrial Coatings & Linings
|Project Type||Open Top / Internal Floaters|
|Products Used||Archco™ Linings System|
|Contractor or Applied By||N/A|
A large oil & gas company in South Texas recently had a problem with internal tank corrosion after the pre-existing lining had failed due to old age. Archco™ 450 was chosen as the tank lining coating due to the excellent reputation for quality products and ﬁ eld service that Denso provides. The project consisted of two open top/internal ﬂ oater tanks with the sidewalls coated with Archco 400 high solids epoxy primer and then over coated with Archco 450, 100 % solids epoxy, glass ﬂaked ﬁlled lining. All coatings were sprayed with a 68:1 single leg airless unit. The Archo 450 was sprayed at 25 to 30 mils in one coat. The coating was applied prior to the insulation of a new internal ﬂoating roof. The Archco 450 will give the tank the chemical resistance, plus the added beneﬁ t of the glass ﬂaked ﬁlled lining to withstand the abrasion of the ﬂoating roof seal, rubbing up and down, as the tank is ﬁlled and emptied. The tank ﬂoor linings will be installed after the insulation of the ﬂoating roof using the Archco 450. The owners can expect 25+ years of internal corrosion protection from the Denso Archco Lining System.
