Over time, storage tanks and equipment can degrade and need a fresh coating. Corrosion can do damage to your equipment, especially your silos and tanks. Exposure to the elements, temperate and humidity fluctuations, and contact with corrosive material stored inside can all cause cosmetic and structural issues.

You will want to address these issues before damage occurs.

Industrial Painting Companies in AZ for Storage Tanks

Ghaster Paintings & Coatings is one of the top industrial painting companies in AZ for storage tanks. With more than 45 years of experience, we know what it takes to do the job right.

Painting storage tanks is a specialized job and requires experience. You need to follow strict protocols to prepare and protect your tanks and do it safely.

Exterior Tank Painting

Corrosion and dirt must be removed, typically by sandblasting the tank’s exterior. Manual processes may also be required to remove stains or trouble spots. It may also be necessary to degrease the outside tank’s surface.

Priming with an industrial coating will protect the metal from corrosion and help the final paint coatings to adhere properly for a long-lasting finish. A final coating is added that will help prevent corrosion and reflect heat.

Special attention is paid to the bottom of the tank where liquids can settle and lead to erosion. Tanks may also suffer from soil erosion.

Interior Tank Painting

Interior tank painting requires additional safety measures, especially if the storage tank holds caustic chemicals. You will want an experienced industrial painting contractor in Arizona that has done this work many times before to do it properly and safely.

Interior tank painting requires stripping, degassing, degreasing, sandblasting, and cleaning the interior of the tank. After preparation and priming, tanks are coated with multiple layers of paint and lacquer materials. Each layer must be dried completely before the next layer is applied.

Safety is important for every job, but interior tank painting also requires venting of fumes, additional protective equipment, and extra precautions to keep everyone safe.

Industrial Painting Contractors in AZ for Equipment

Besides storage tanks, the team at Ghaster Painting & Coatings can help refurbish your equipment to keep it looking good and protect it. Rust and corrosion can do significant damage. Maintaining and repainting equipment regularly helps protect you from unexpected equipment failure and downtime.

We strip rust, paint, and corrosion from machinery and components and clean industrial pollutants from surfaces. Our crews use protective cleaning and coating products that provide long-term protection, help prevent rust and corrosion, and are effective with different moisture, and salinity levels caused by acid rain and chemicals.

Depending on the type of equipment, location, and space restrictions, different methods may be used. For example, many industrial jobs require what is known as 2k paint, a two-component urethan paint containing a pain base and hardening agent. 2k paint cures and hardens to create a tougher, more durable surface protectant that resists corrosion.

Electrostatic spraying may be used to avoid overspray and create a smooth, even finish. Electrostatic spraying adds a negative charge to the paint as it leaves the sprayer that bonds tightly with the positively charged equipment. This works especially well inside tubes or on the interior of equipment if required.

As one of the premier industrial painting companies in Arizona, Ghaster Painting & Coatings can help extend the service life of your equipment.
