Because Houston Fuel Oil needed to meet a deadline to store incoming crude oil, the challenge for the painting contractor was to complete two tanks within 28 days, versus a normal 60-day schedule. This demanding schedule had to be met during a cool, rainy period, which was likely to create condensation on the work surface of the tank. Polygon experts suggested utilizing propane gas-fired desiccant dehumidifiers , which are effective in removal of high levels of moisture at high rates of airflow. An added advantage in this situation was the ability to utilize the heat, a natural byproduct of the process, to boost the cure rate of the coating. With Polygon’s system in place, the contractor said that his company met the deadline and saved money in the process.
