Due to the aggressive environment within which the typical storage tank resides; the harsh contents and the extreme weather conditions they are often exposed too, means the re-coating of these vessels is a necessary demand. The vast size of the tanks, the difficulty in logistics and the tight schedules are often challenging requirements for a contractor to meet.
Moisture and temperature is a constant threat to coating success during tank projects. Whether its corrosion, condensation, paint that will not dry or blushing due to excess moisture or temperature, the problems are real and costly. The loss of productivity, materials and man hours due to moisture problems or unexpected weather conditions can directly affect the cost of any project.
The corrosion rate during an outage can be accelerated by the presence of acids and dissolved salts as well as the presence of hygroscopic salts which absorb moisture from the surrounding air. The oxidation of steel requires the presence of moisture and oxygen. Using our dry air method, one of these factors is eliminated preventing corrosion.
