Composite Tank Repair – Common Problems Addressed and Limitations

Innovator Industrial Services tackles the pervasive issue of tank corrosion with an advanced corrosion solution: composite tank repair. This innovative approach is designed to address shell thinning due to corrosion, a common problem that compromises the structural integrity of tanks. Traditional methods required welding or inserting new plates, but composite tank repair offers a non-invasive alternative for reinforcing hoop loads caused by hydrostatic pressure. Whether applied externally or internally,composite tank repair provides essential structural strengthening, conforming to the liquid height and contents of the tank. However, its application comes with certain limitations, including restrictions on use within the bottom 12 inches of the tank for compliant repairs. Discover how this cutting-edge technology is redefining the standards for maintaining and repairing corroded tanks.

You know, the most common problem that tank wrap is going to address is going to be corrosion. So corrosion in the shell which causes thinning, and after you run calculations, we can determine if it’s sufficient or not. If the shell is not sufficient alone, then the old way of doing it would be to well the plate or cut out a plate and do an insert plate. With tank wrap, we can provide that same structural strengthening for those hoop loads caused by hydrostatic pressure that’s inside of the tank due to the liquid height and what’s in the tank. So we can do that externally or internally. Each has its own pros and cons. And you know, some of the limitations around where we can use the standard we can’t use it in the bottom 12 inches of the tank for a compliant repair.
