> Industrial Silos and Storage Tanks
  • INSPECTION & ASSESSMENT – Careful inspection by an industrial coating expert is key to identifying issues and vulnerabilities before they cause extensive damage. While there are obvious signs of problems like peeling or bubbling paint, cracks, and rust, our trained professionals can spot more subtle signs indicating the existing coating or structure is compromised. It is typically far less costly and disruptive to address issues at the very first signs of concern.
  • INDUSTRIAL CLEANING INCLUDING HIGH-ELEVATION DRONE POWER WASHING – Moisture, debris, and contamination on the paint film begins the corrosion process. We safely and completely remove these contaminants through industrial power washing and cleaning, an essential part of protecting and extending the life of silo and tank coatings and their underlying substrates. Our autonomous drone power washing capabilities offer a safer, greener, more cost-efficient solution for cleaning silos and other elevated structures. Skipping this maintenance typically leads to rust and corrosion and to premature decay of the linings and structure.
  • RUST & CORROSION CONTROL AND REPAIRS – If corrosion and damage has occurred, we can remove the rust and remedy the root problem, so it does not worsen or return. This must be done prior to repainting or lining to ensure the substrate is sound and in optimum condition for the new coating to adhere properly and protect the substrate and contents.
  • INTERIOR TANK LININGS & COATINGS – We apply high-performance industrial-grade coating and lining systems to protect the integrity of silo and tank structures and the valuable contents they holds. Advanced coating and lining products, when applied properly, create a powerfully protective barrier that prevents leaking, chemical erosion, corrosion, evaporation, and any reaction between the contents and the substrate. It is essential that interior tank and silo linings are inspected regularly and kept in excellent working order to ensure long-term durability.
  • EXTERIOR SILO & TANK PAINTING – Our highly durable coating systems are formulated to withstand challenging weather and environmental conditions, and our crews have the training and expertise to apply them exactly per the manufacturer specifications for optimum performance and protection of your valuable assets. We can paint logos and colors on the exterior to showcase your brand, apply markings for safety, and paint any surrounding structures for a cohesive and professional overall appearance.
  • PAINTING & RESTORATION OF ADJACENT STRUCTURES – To fully protect and renew your silo and tank facility, our team can restore and paint support structures, railings, ladders, fencing, stairwells, doors, buildings, and other adjacent components. As with tank linings and coatings, we have the knowledge and experience necessary to properly restore and paint a wide variety of substrates including concrete, steel, metal, brick, stone, wood, and more.
