Powder Coated Steel Bolted Tanks

Powder Coating is a type of coating that is applied as a free-flowing, dry powder. The main difference between a conventional liquid paint and a powder coating is that the powder coating does not require a solvent to keep the binder and filler parts in a liquid suspension form. The coating is typically applied electrostatically and is then cured under heat to allow it to flow and form a “skin”. The powder may be a thermoplastic or a thermoset polymer. It is usually used to create a hard finish that is tougher than conventional paint. Powder coating is mainly used for coating of metals, such as household appliances, aluminum extrusions, drum hardware, and automobile and bicycle parts. Newer technologies allow other materials, such as MDF (medium-density fibreboard), to be powder coated using different methods.

There are two main categories of powder coating: thermosets and thermoplastics. The thermosetting variety incorporates a cross-linker into the formulation. When the powder is baked, it reacts with other chemical groups in the powder to polymerize, improving the performance properties. The thermoplastic variety does not undergo any additional actions during the baking process as it flows to form the final coating.

The most common polymers used are polyester, polyurethane, polyester-epoxy (known as hybrid), straight epoxy (fusion bonded epoxy) and acrylics. Climate Manufacturing Overview:
• Production – All controlled at one manufacturing site, thereby simplifying the supply chain and providing a seamless service to meet Customers’ requirements
• Technical support – An experienced team interacts with our Customer base to ensure Customer demand is met
• Modern manufacturing facility – dedicated to the production of our carbon bolted steel tanks, liners, flanges, ladders and cages, platforms, anti-vortex inhibitors, wind stiffening rings and hardware, anchoring hardware, bulkheads, roof access hatches, and other accessories.

Climate tanks are manufactured with steel panels and are attached together with bolts. The tank is either sealed with mastic on the vertical and horizontal panel seams or lined with a PVC liner that is fixed to the top of the tank through reinforced eyelets. Tanks with liners use polyester geo-textile matting, which is placed on the tank floor and walls to protect the liner from damage during installation and use. Our tanks typically use a roof that has two layers of a trough, drain, and ridge design (TDR) which sandwich a ridged insulation form-board membrane that is supported by galvanized ‘Z’ and ‘C’ purlins and finished with flashing.
