Corrosion Protection for Industrial Tanks in Southern California

Tuesday, July 30, 2013

Whether you have a water, fuel, chemical or any other type of industrial tank, chances are it’s essential for the productivity of your business. That’s why it’s important to protect your tanks from harsh natural forces. Corrosion is one of these forces. Not only is it unsightly, it can cause significant damage. However, your tanks will be running smoothly once you have a handle on proper tank maintenance.

Causes: Tanks are naturally susceptible to corrosion due to the way they’re made. Although there are different variables for both the internal and external portions of the tank, metal and oxygen must be in combination with water, moist soil or concrete in order for corrosion to occur.

Solutions: Proper inspection is a major aspect to tank maintenance. Make sure to regularly schedule inspections for damages that you are not able to outwardly see. Also, coating tanks will prevent corrosion and other damages. Some painting companies provide specialty coatings or secondary containment, which protects both interior and exterior surfaces of the tank from rupture, leaks, weathering and corrosion.

Potential Issues:

  • Costly repairs
  • Leaks
  • Contamination
  • Shorter tank lifespan
  • Frequent productivity interruptions
