100% Solids Tank Lining with Tnemec


TMI Coatings, Inc. (TMI) is a specialty coatings contractor with the experience, knowledge, and equipment to produce quality results in multiple industries and applications. This project highlights TMI’s expertise in sandblasting, inspection, and coatings. It showcases our proficiency in applying specialty coatings such as Tnemec FC-22, a 100% solids epoxy designed to protect concrete and steel in this environment.

These water treatment tanks, vital components of the community’s infrastructure, help provide clean, potable water to the community.  The tanks were due for critical maintenance after years of continuous service since their last inspection. The TMI team removed 20 years of lime buildup and corrosion and made several structural repairs crucial to the system’s integrity.  The team also underwent a comprehensive sandblasting process to prepare the surfaces for applying the high-performance coating.

Some of the project highlights include:

  1. The draining of both tanks.
  2. Removing, thoroughly cleaning, and disposing of lime mineral buildup (in places over a foot thick).
  3. Protect all vital components so they are not sandblasted and coated.
  4. Sandblasting to SSPC-SP10 standards.
  5. The industrial trailer vacuum unit is used for spent abrasives removal.
  6. Inspection by TMI’s in-house Certified Welding Inspector.
  7. Making all necessary structural repairs.
  8. Priming and coating all components above and below the waterline using highly specialized spraying equipment and a Tnemec high-performance 100% solids coating system.
  9. Disinfect the tanks and bring them back into service.

The undertaking involves the application of Tnemec FC-22, a specialty coating renowned for providing long-term protection against corrosion, chemical exposure, and environmental elements. TMI’s dedication to utilizing premium products such as Tnemec FC-22 underscores its commitment to delivering unparalleled quality and longevity in its projects. Applying 100% solids epoxy demands specialized equipment and trained operators to execute the application. TMI’s team of skilled professionals is well-equipped to handle this complex task, utilizing their expertise and state-of-the-art equipment to ensure the proper application of the specialty coating.

As TMI embarks on this significant endeavor for Williams Bay, the community can rest assured that their infrastructure is in the hands of a company dedicated to quality work and safety. The project’s successful completion will enhance the durability and longevity of the tanks and serve as a testament to TMI’s commitment to safety, quality work, and on-time project delivery.
