While on site completing restoration and coating of silos and a head house at a grain facility in Iowa, TMI Coatings prepared and coated a conveyor over the Mississippi River, including the catwalk, structural walkway, staircase, bents, tower and barge load out spout.
The existing paint on the conveyor contained lead so TMI had to comply with Iowa & OSHA regulations. TMI installed ground containment on the land areas and arranged for a barge and man lift for in order to safely access the structure and contain paint chips to prevent them from entering the water.
For this structure, TMI applied an epoxy rust-inhibitive metal primer followed by a quality aliphatic polyurethane paint coating material suitable for industrial environments. TMI uses this process repeatedly with excellent success on conveyors, legs, distributors and various other steel substrates.
