TMI Coatings, Inc. (TMI) completed an emergency repair of a Deaerator Tank for the Regional Treatment Center in St. Peter. After TMI lined the deaerator tank interior, the exterior of the tank was prepared by pressure washers to remove dust, dirt and other contaminants. TMI further hand/tool cleaned. TMI primed the exterior using Tnemec Series 1224 and finished with a top coat using Tnemec Series 971. Tnemec series 1224 consists of an advanced generation, water-based epoxy coating that is low odor. This product is specifically formulated to provide a corrosion resistant barrier. When used as a one or two coat system, this series protects metal substrates from the effects of corrosion under insulation. The high-performance formulation offers excellent adhesion and protection up to 400°degrees. Tnemec series 971 consists of an innovative thermal insulating coating. This series is ideal for insulating pipes, valves, tanks, structural steel or other substrates. Tenemc series 971 is a durable, corrosion-resistant coating system that bonds to the substrate, significantly reducing the issues associated with corrosion under insulation.
“TMI did an excellent job it was amazing, it’s unbelievable, at 240° F you can put your hand on the coating and not burn your hand. Looks like will stay on a lot longer than fiberglass. I’m very impressed. It has kept the heat down! TMI was very professional, didn’t make a mess, it was a nice project, I appreciate the job you did. Everything is back in service and operating like a new tank.” Per Contact for St. Peter Regional Treatment Center: Jim Murphy (507) 469-0502
