Sandblasting Chicago


When it comes to above ground storage tanks one thing is certain-they all suffer from some form of corrosion.
When this happens the surface needs to be prepared to be repainted. Whether it’s a small fuel storage tank
or a 120’ municipal water tower, rust will most likely play a role at some point in time. Once that happens
you will need to act quickly to prevent the corrosion from creating costly damage beyond typical repair costs.
Sandblasting the exterior surface removes the old paint along with the rust to create a clean surface that’s ready
to have a fresh coat of paint applied to it.

Underground Storage Tanks have special linings that both contain contents and prevent them from leaking out.
When these tanks require maintenance they are drained and inspected. If a new coating is necessary the old
coating is removed by media blasting.
