Potable Water Tanks Refurbishment
One of the world’s largest cruise line companies required to have the potable water tanks on-board one of their cruise ships refurbished, as they were showing signs of age and deterioration.
Grit blasting was not permissible. There was also a strict time frame given for completion of the project.
Water jetting to WJ-3 standards was selected as the surface preparation method.
This was followed by one primer coat of solvent-free, wet & rust tolerant epoxy RS 500P.
One topcoat of solvent-free, wet tolerant epoxy Epo-chem™ RA 500M was applied to complete the coating system.
The solvent-free properties of the Chemco system – which allowed the use of water jetting for surface preparation – ensured that there was no disruption to other ongoing work within the vicinity.
The unique wet & rust tolerant properties of the Chemco system also ensured that coating application could take place immediately upon completion of the surface preparation, resulting in substantial time and cost savings being achieved.
This system is NSF Certified for potable water applications.
