Surface Preparation for Weld Inspection & Cleaning of Tanks

International manufacturer and marketer of transportation fuels, petrochemical products based in Manchester

To recommission their storage tanks, an international manufacturer and marketer of transportation fuels and petrochemical products enlisted ASL PowerStream to remove the coating covering the tank welds in order to carry out an inspection.

Rather than using traditional shot blasting techniques which create a lot of mess, requires extensive cleanup upon completion and can require convoluted health and safety considerations, ASL PowerStream used our Ultra High Pressure (UHP) water jetting techniques to reveal the welds on the tank ready for inspection.

Once all 22 tanks had been prepared and inspected, ASL PowerStream cleaned the internals of the tanks ready for use.
