Fire Water Tanks are commonly insulated to maintain fire water temperatures above freezing. Sprayed-in-place urethane foam insulation is commonly chosen as an insulation system at an R-value of approximately 6/inch.
TMI Coatings insulated a Fire Water Storage Tank 52’ diameter x 32’ tall. 1½” of sprayed-in-place urethane foam insulation provides an R-value of 9.
TMI removed the old insulation system, vacuum blasted the exterior of the tank to remove the hazardous paint, completed pit filling and weld repairs and installed new sprayed-in-place urethane foam insulation with gray topcoat. The interior of the tank was sandblasted to remove the old failed lining and a new epoxy tank lining was installed.
