Hot Well Tank
Scope: Hot Well Tank
Date: February 2015
Products: RW 500
A hot well tank on-board the Passenger Ship required a protective coating system capable of handling hot water at temperatures around 90ºC. This system also had to be applied on new shop primed steel.
The client required a coating system which could be applied without the removal of the shop primer as grit blasting was not permissible. There was also a strict time frame to complete the project.
The surfaces were freshwater washed and degreased to remove any contamination from the substrate. This was followed by one stripe coat and one full coat of solvent-free, wet tolerant epoxy Epo-chem™ RW 500.
The unique wet tolerant properties of Epo-chem™ RW 500 system ensured that the coating application could take place immediately upon surface preparation completion. Moreover, the shop primer did not require to be removed before the Chemco system could be applied as the systems were 100% compatible. Substantial time and cost savings were achieved by utilising this Chemco system.
