Qualifying Tank Coatings for Broad Service Capabilities

Paper No. 150 Bowditch1, A.W. Chesterton, Groveland, Massachusetts, USA   Abstract Often times an existing tank lining is unsuited for exchange service when a new chemical is going to be stored in the tank.  For example, a tank lining selected to resist light oils is not necessarily compatible with alkylates.  When this situation arises either the […]
