Sprinkler Tank Repair and Epoxy Coating
Axion Polymers Ltd are a plastics recycling company based in Manchester. Were asked to take a look at the existing sprinkler tank, to assess whether refurbishment was a viable option. The existing sprinkler tank had split in various locations around the water line, and there were a number of perforations around the base of the tank. After careful consideration, we recommended an internal refurbishment and strengthening of the tank around the water line.
A new low level access hatch was installed to provide safe access. A mobile scaffold was used to drill and rivet fourteen galvanised steel strips around the sprinkler tanks top panels. This procedure strengthened the tank around the waterline and improved the cosmetic look of the tank. Fibreglass matting and resin were applied to the damaged areas internally, and all other perforations were repaired. A three coat epoxy system was applied to the tank walls and some minor repairs were carried out to the tanks roofing sheets.
The tank has now been fully refurbished and put back into service. We would like to thank Axiom Polymers for awarding us the works and we wish them all future success.
