TANK LINING

We are a vastly experienced tank lining company, undertaking all types of tank lining throughout the UK for over 25 years

TYPICALLY ALL OF OUR TANK LININGS COME WITH A
10 YEAR WARRANTY

Storage tanks may require a tank reline or new lining to protect against many factors, whether it is a chemical resistant tank lining or a hygienic water tank lining to guard against legionella Corroless Eastern have the solution.

We have been installing seamless epoxy, polyurethane and lately polyurea tank linings for over 25 years.

By working closely with key suppliers and using our experience we can select the correct tank lining specification for your project and budget requirements.

Can be chemically resistant

Clean and hygenic

Can be resistant to high temperatures

Can bring an otherwise worn & rotten tank back to a serviceable condition

Hugely cheaper than a tank replacement

Much quicker return to service than removing and replacing

Tank Reline

When surveying a tank reline project it is important to carefully consider the history of the vessel for possible contamination, the parameters in which the tank lining will have to perform and how to undertake the works correctly. This is where our over 25 years’ experience in undertaking tank reline projects comes into play.  Our tank linings can be applied to steel tanks, concrete tanks and grp tanks, to resolve issues such as leaking tanks and poor water hygiene.

The key to any new tank lining or tank reline project is the correct surface preparation, of which we are able to offer the full spectrum of tank lining preparation techniques.  From mechanical preparation through to abrasive blasting and ultra high-pressure water jetting.

To ensure the highest quality tank linings we have our own in-house ICORR paint inspectors who ensures that all preparation standards and correct tank reline application procedures are adhered to.  Once installed all tank linings and tank reline projects are thoroughly tested to ensure a seamless, defect-free finish.  Our tank reline services are typically offered with a 10 year warranty, however depending on the type of tank reline being undertaken this can be extended in agreement with our tank lining suppliers.

Undertaking the Tank Reline or Tank Lining

By the nature of working within a tank the majority of our tank reline projects are within confined spaces.

To undertake all of our tank reline projects safely all of our operatives are confined space and CSCS trained.  Our site supervisors are typically trained to SMSTS level or SSTS as a minimum.

This is in addition to more specific training such as PASMA, first aid, COSHH etc.

Over 25 years experience in tank linings have given us a wealth of experience to undertake your tank reline project safely and efficiently.

We can supply the following; Epoxy Tank Linings, Polyurea Tank Linings, Drinking Water Tank Linings, Chemical Tank Linings, Polyurethane Tank Linings, Reinforced Tank Linings, Flexible Tank Linings, High Temperature Tank Linings.  With our wealth of experience, Corroless Eastern are the right tank lining contractor for your project.

Abrasion Resistant Lining

General Types Of Tank Lining

Epoxy Tank Linings
Cementitious Tank Linings
Polyurethane Tank Linings
Polyurea Tank Linings
Vinyl Ester Tank Linings
Epoxy Tank Linings

Epoxy coatings have come to form the backbone of corrosion control since their invention, including in tank lining environments. Because epoxy coatings are such a versatile technology the endless variations and uses of epoxy tank lining cannot be listed here. Technologies such as Novalac epoxies mean that they can now be used in more aggressive and higher temperature environments than previously possible.

Potential Uses;

AdvantagesDisadvantages
  • Very versatile technology with many uses
  • Can be tested using a DC holiday spark tester upon completion to check for pin holing
  • Can be solvent free to reduce risk during application
  • Can be moisture tolerant
  • Generally not flexible, meaning that if movement is suspected reinforcement may be required.
  • Generally slow curing, meaning a slower return to service.
  • Generally non-permeable meaning that use where water vapour pressure is occurring may lead to blistering.
Cementitious Tank Linings

Cementitious linings, polymer modified cementitious and epoxy modified cementious linings have been widely used throughout industry and water treatment for the lining of concrete tanks for many years. A particular benefit of cementitous linings is that they can often be used to waterproof below ground structures. Generally cementitious tank linings are vapour permeable also meaning that they are particularly suitable for use in below ground structures.

Potential Uses;

AdvantagesDisadvantages
  • Generally vapour permeable
  • Can also be waterproofing
  • Versatile technology with many uses
  • Generally not flexible, meaning that if cracking/movement is occurring additional design details may be required.
  • Cannot be spark tested due to their conductive nature
  • Generally slower cure time and longer return to service
Polyurethane Tank Linings

Like epoxies polyurethanes are a very versatile technology with many varieties and uses. Not all polyurethanes are suitable for tank linings and any used should have been specifically designed for that purpose. Through different formulations polyurethanes can be made flexible, brittle or somewhere inbetween. Flexible/crack bridging materials are particularly suitable for concrete structures.

Potential Uses;

AdvantagesDisadvantages
  • Very versatile technology with many uses
  • Can be tested using a DC holiday spark tester upon completion to check for pin holing due to non conductive properties
  • Can be solvent free to reduce risk during application
  • Can have a fast cure and return to service compared to the majority of epoxy materials
  • Generally very sensitive to moisture during application
  • Not vapour permeable
Polyurea Tank Linings

In the world of tank linings Polyurea materials are a relatively new phenomenon, with commercial applications only beginning in earnest in the 1990’s. Generally the material is applied through specialist spray equipment due to the very fast gel time of the materials which is typically below 10 seconds. The material generally offers excellent strength and flexibility with elongation properties up to 900% possible. As with epoxies and polyurethanes there are many different versions available designed for different applications.

Potential Uses;

  • Water Tank Linings – Both WRAS and Regulation 31 approved materials are available
  • Steel Tank Linings
  • Chemical tank linings
  • Concrete tank linings
AdvantagesDisadvantages
  • Very versatile technology with many uses
  • Can be tested using a DC holiday spark tester upon completion to check for pin holing due to non conductive properties
  • Solvent free
  • Extremely fast cure time allowing fast installations and return to service within as little as 1 hour depending upon usage
  • Flexible
  • Abrasion resistant
  • Moisture insensitive in terms of humidity during application. Dew point constraints still need to be observed
  • Very long service life
  • Specialist spray equipment required with support plant
  • Generally have to be spray applied
  • Not vapour permeable
Vinyl Ester Tank Linings

This proven technology offers some of the highest levels of chemical resistance available when applying a protective lining. This material has been extensively used throughout chemical processing and in refinery environments due to its ability to withstand chemical attack even at elevated temperatures.

Potential Uses;

  • Steel Tank Linings
  • Chemical tank linings
  • High temperature tank linings
  • Concrete tank linings – with reinforcement if required
AdvantagesDisadvantages
  • Can be tested using a DC holiday spark tester upon completion to check for pin holing due to non conductive properties
  • Highly chemical resistant
  • Can tolerate high operating temperatures
  • Generally not flexible, meaning that if movement is suspected reinforcement may be required.
  • Generally non permeable meaning that use where water vapour pressure is occurring can lead to blistering.
  • Pungent odour during application which needs to carefully managed
  • Sensitive to moisture during application
