Refurbishment of a 1,000,000 Gallon Tank

TMI Coatings recently began a tank refurbishment project for the Port of Brownsville, TX. TMI set up a containment system with a dust collector. The crew took special care in protecting the camera, pressure gauge, and all other electrical units on site from damage prior to beginning sandblasting.

TMI is currently testing the metals for the presence of soluble salts, sandblasting and applying coating to the interior and exterior of the 1,000,000 gallon tank.

This work is scheduled to be completed by March 2014.
