Worcestershire Cold Water Tank Repair

These water tanks in this wonderful location were leaking and corroding badly. NDT testing showed the tanks surfaces needed restructuring to give them a new lease of life.

These cold water tanks in the Severn Valley were leaking and corroding badly. After non destructive testing/ NDT we restructured the internal surfaces with our fibreglass lining system to give them a new lease of life.

A scaffold platform was erected up to and around the tanks for safe access and egress. Consequently we worked safely de-sludging and grit blasting.

We brought in a local scaffolder to erect platforms up to the tanks for safe access and egress, enabling us to work safely throughout the refurbishment. Once the tanks were washed and cleaned, the surfaces were sand blasted with Hodge Clemco JBlast Supa.

Layers of woven and chopped strand fibreglass were applied to the blast cleaned and keyed internal surfaces, encapsulating all the riveted joints and completely restructuring the tanks.

After sandblasting and priming, layers of woven and chopped strand fibreglass were applied to the surfaces, encapsulating all the riveted joints and completely restructuring the tanks.

The cured fibreglass lining was completely sealed with an isopthalic gelcoat, protecting the surfaces for the next 25 years.

The cured fibreglass lining was completely sealed with an isopthalic gel topcoat protecting the surfaces for at least the next 25 years.
