3Project OverviewFor this project, a 5,000,000 gallon tank (60’ high x 120’ diameter) was to be cleaned and restored, with a protective coating applied to the exterior. The tank is located in International Paper’s Reigelwood Plant, a large scale industrial paper pulping plant*.
4Services PerformedFor this project, Saffo Contractors prepped, abrasive blasted, pressure washed, and applied protective coating to the tank. Blasting was done to an SP6 commercial grade and paint applied included 3 coats of Carboline paint: zinc epoxy primer, epoxy- polyamide intermediate, and a polyurethane finish coat conforming with the industrial standards as described by International Paper.
5Extensive CleanupSaffo crews removed over 12” of pulp waste coverage from the top of the tank.
