Flour Silo Liner:

Flour Silo InteriorTMI Coatings has lined the interior of flour silos in Dallas-Fort Worth to eliminate chipping and flaking paint which can contaminate the flour and disrupt production. Great care was taken to prepare the silos’ surfaces to ensure good coating adhesion. The silos were first solvent cleaned to remove contaminants and oils per SSPC-SP 1, then sandblasted to SSPC-SP10 Near White Metal Blast. TMI then applied a stripe coat to all welds and sharp edges with a high solids epoxy coating. Two full coats of low odor, food grade epoxy were then applied. This specific coating system was chosen because it is suitable for use in USDA-inspected facilities and is chemical and abrasion resistant.
