TANKS ARE WHAT WE DO
QUICK TURNAROUND & NO DOWNTIME
We know how important it is for your business to stay in operation, that's why we make sure we get the job done fast and that you don't experience any downtime. For a typical 30,000 gal. LPG tank, you can expect an average turnaround time of only 2 days. We offer Dustless Blasting applications as well for more active sites where staying operational is critical.
With our expert restoration staff, top-of-the-line equipment, and use of top notch coatings. We're very confident in our ability to give you a paint job that will last. That's why we offer some of the longest term warranties in the business.
Whether your project is on along the coastline of the gulf coast weathering high winds and saltwater or they're in the type of climate where they can experience all 4 seasons in a day. In either situation, we take all factors into account and tailor-fit our coatings to best protect your tanks/assets and therefore give them the best possible protection.
WE "SPEC" TO PROTECT
In order to deliver consistent, high quality, paint jobs time after time... we "spec" our projects to give you the best coating protection (when coating specs are not specified). We measure surface profile, before & after DFT, and test for holidays upon request. We do this to ensure that our clients get what they paid for... a top quality paint job.

OUR TANK PAINTING PROCESS
Assess the condition
We first identify the previous substrate & assess the current coating condition looking for a certain degree or percentage of rust, level of mill scale, etc that can be visibly assessed. We compare the coating to SSPC Pictorial Surface Standards to determine the best course of action to properly prepare the surface (if not already specified.) and determine a proper containment setup (If necessary).
We typically start with SSPC SP 1 solvent cleaning; basically we remove all dirt, grime, oils, mildew, and other surface level contaminants for both inside and outside the tank structure. For Commercial projects we typically blast to SSPC sp 6 standards or to the required spec. Once done, we measure surface profile, and test cleanliness (dust, soluble salts & chlorides) to make sure it meets specifications. The exterior surface preparation will depend on the level of quality desired and/or our field observations of the current coating quality to determine which preparation specification to meet.
Before we start our tank painting process, we always check conditions such as relative humidity, moisture content, temperature, and dew point to make sure the conditions meet coating specification. Once optimal, we start the coating process. Based on your tank, the region your in, type of tank, budget, and many other variables, we come up with the right coating system for your tank. We then coat to manufacturers recommended mil thickness or to the required spec. Throughout the coating process, our applicators use mil gauges to make sure we are meeting thickness specifications.
Once dry to handle, we double check dft to ensure we've coated your tank properly and test for holidays if necessary.
