Corrosion is all around us — and almost nothing is safe. However, savvy industry leaders mitigate and even prevent corrosion by using corrosion resistant linings. By utilizing liners, you can better protect the metals and other materials that comprise your storage tanks from corrosive substances and abrasive activities that can cause rust, cracks, or other problems — which often lead to structural integrity losses or system failures. In addition, applying corrosion resistant linings can also reduce maintenance and repair costs.
What are linings made of?
Linings are made from a variety of substances, each depending on application and associated contact materials. They are commonly used in
- tank trucks,
- chemical storage tanks,
- water treatment tanks,
- plating tanks,
- agitators, and
Linings are specifically designed to meet plant or storage facility needs and are based on properties of the materials you plan to store. Options can range from rubber and fiberglass to Teflon and Koroseal linings, among others.
Who uses corrosion resistant linings?
Those across various industries use corrosion resistant linings, including personnel at
- metal and mineral processing plants,
- food and beverage plants with food grade linings,
- battery and chemical plants,
- power plants, and
- water treatment facilities.
Regardless of industry, corrosion resistant linings can be cost effective solutions to ensuring system safety, material and structural integrity, and — most important — the safety and health of personnel and the environment.
Planning: A solution custom fit for your needs
Before installing corrosion resistant linings in your facility, it is crucial you work with industry experts who can guide you in choosing materials specifically engineered to best meet your needs. Together, you can design a solution to reduce maintenance and shutdown requirements, protect products from contamination and exposure related damage, as well as increase worker, plant, and environmental safety. By working with the right partner, you can also rest assured your linings will be up to code.
