Extend the Availability And Life of Storage or Process Tanks

Tanks are basic components for the operational structure of every facility or ship. The maintenance of these tanks is important to public safety, the environment, facility operations and cost control. The gradual corrosion of these tanks eventually can lead to business interruption, expensive maintenance and/or replacement.

Sponge Media™ abrasives can be used on:

  • Potable water tanks
  • Oil storage tanks
  • Retaining ponds and pools
  • Cargo tanks
  • Waste water tanks
  • Bilge and ballast tanks
  • Chemical tanks, etc.

Sponge-Jet technology makes abrasive blasting these tanks faster, cheaper and less problematic with fewer business interruptions – while providing extended coating life and reduced future maintenance costs. Using Sponge-Jet technology allows multiple Sponge Blasters operating in close proximity with near perfect visibility; Sponge Blasting takes place with reduced need for dust-collection, dehumidification, less waste and material handling. The end result… lower total project costs from: high-first pass quality and less rework; multiple trades continue work near/during Sponge Blasting; the ability to continuously inspect tanks.
