Filtration Plant Interior Painting Project


Overview: Filtration Plant, 90 W Tyrone St. Le Center, MN

Contact: Pat Kaderlik

Scope: Interior Wall & Structural Painting

TMI Coatings, Inc. (TMI) undertook a comprehensive interior painting project at the Le Center WTP Filtration Plant in many rooms simultaneously. The project involved meticulous preparation, the use of quality coatings, and adherence to safety measures.  This was a very high-humidity environment in which close monitoring was required of the changing temperatures outside, as that influenced the possibility of condensation on the interior surfaces of the CMU block walls during preparation and industrial painting.

Work Performed:

TMI covered open top tanks with rigid board and plywood to collect any paint chips to keep them from entering the tanks; safely rigged and utilized manlifts to access some work areas.  Areas to paint were located overhead and challenging to access but all work was done safely for the plant.

CO2/Dry ice blasting was utilized to clean to remove contaminants and loose, delaminating existing coating material.  TMI further hand/mechanically abraded some additional obvious rust areas on steel items.

TMI applied Amerlock 400 BF to bare CMU block or concrete wall areas and then applied one full prime coat of Amerlock 2.

One full top coat of Amerlock 2 was then applied for good thorough coverage.

This two-coat epoxy coating system is considered surface tolerant and is compatible with prepared, damp surfaces, has good adhesion to most existing coatings and exhibits good resistance to splash and spillage of chemicals.

TMI’s Superintendent and crew did a really good job, everything went really well. And the communication was really good per Pat. Another successful painting project at a filtration plant.
