RELINING PROCESS

This facility had 5 carbon steel uranium settling tanks that were in almost complete failure. Due to the permanent infrastructure surrounding them within the facility, demoing them and bringing in new tanks was not an option. We began by abrasive blasting the interiors, and then installing self-supporting, structural and corrosion resistant FRP liners. We added 25% silica carbide into this 3/4 inch thick liner to provide better abrasive service as the tank contains such high solids. This was much lower cost and an estimated 1/4th of the time compared to attempting to replace the tanks.
