A large manufacturer of industrial sanitation and food safety products hired TMI Coatings to coat the interior of a steel silo at their facility in southeast Wisconsin. The manufacturer stored raw materials in the silo; Moisture was getting into the silo. This caused the stored raw materials to curdle and coagulate, making the material unusable.
After visiting the facility, TMI proposed to use urethane elastomer to coat the interior of the silo. TMI prepared all seams and bolted connections inside the tank to prepare the surface for new coating adhesion. All seams on the cone bottom, shell and ceiling of the silo were coated with urethane elastomer. A urethane elastomer was chosen because of its flexibility and expansion/contraction abilities in changing temperatures.
