The coatings landscape is changing dramatically with more stringent VOC laws and extractables standards for drinking water, the products owners can rely on for lining their storage vessels is shifting. The author will discuss the advantages of using high film build, edge retentive 100% solids epoxy technology for steel potable water storage tanks.
Conference Paper - This paper describes the requirements of the standard, additional inspection points, and several uses of the standard in the field where clear specification language was imperative to successful project completion. NACE 5/SSPC-SP 12 standard confined to water jetting - which makes use of ultra-high pressure water that is nonabrasive. Four levels of visible post-cleaning condition and three levels of non-visible condition are defined.
A technology to detect corrosion damage and estimate extent and location within an enclosed volume. This coating condition monitoring (CCM) system is a network of sensors that measure conditions and electrochemical parameters to evaluate the health of coating and substrate for steel plates and tanks.
